Holidays are coming
(no they're not)
#1
New LEGO advert with Katy Perry.
Got my goat.


It is NOT the Holiday Season.
It's Christmas. Or the festive season.


This is not (yet) America.
Holidays are in the summer. To Blackpool.

There are many cultures in the uk ladsnet and thus many different celebrations throughout, holiday is just an umbrella term, Don’t see the issue.

Got your goat?  As in pissed you off?  You used an American phrase to complain about another American phrase you don't like.  Try harder, we look up to you.

I think its amusing that The People's Lottery are deliberately marketing their festive draw utilising a big red truck covered with coloured lights...

But it isn't.
In no part of the UK, until the Coke adverts, has anyone ever called Christmas 'the holidays'

Again it’s more than just Christmas, there are other cultures who celebrate their holidays at this time of year. Saying holiday season covers all of them for everybody. Just a nice equal thing, not hurting anybody.

Is it not because, certainly in America, the festive period actually is their 'main holiday season', whereas here in the UK (especially with regards to the long school summer holiday) we tend to think of the summer as being 'holiday season' for us?

No it’s to cover all the holidays that everybody celebrates.

Just google and you will see all the different ones celebrated this time of year.

Nope

Quote:.. so, you might be wondering exactly what “holiday season” means. Don’t people take vacations all year round? And aren’t there public holidays at different times during the year?

The answer to both these questions is yes, but “holiday season” is a North American term that refers to the period of time from Thanksgiving until the New Year. This covers many of the most important holidays in American culture, when most people in the USA and Canada are likely to travel back to their home town or take time off to spend time with their family.

In the UK and in other English speaking countries, you are more likely to hear people talk about the “festive season”, which covers the build up to Christmas until the start of the New Year, or the “Christmas holidays”, which is the week lasting from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day. Many businesses in the UK close completely during this time and employees take the whole time off as holiday.

Its an American term. It is being used here now due to Americanisms creeping into the English language.
It is nothing to do with multi-culturism

Its like JD now starting to call trainers 'sneakers'
Should be a law against it like there is in France.

Maybe it’s because the uk is realising now that there is more than Christmas here, and they are adopting the term. It’s ok you are still British if you say it.

Quite a few Americans dislike the term as well, mainly republicans like Trump and his ilk. Seems like a strange thing to get angry about in my opinion, because for those people at least, the anger seems to stem from a distaste about the inclusion it encompasses.

There are some Americanisms that should be scrubbed from British English which are creeping in, such as "off of" "I could care less" and "literally" (when used in a context to mean the exact opposite of literal).

In this instance, surely it's just because Lego made their Katy Perry advert primarily for the American market and they can't be arsed to record a separate version for us?  I don't think they've suddenly gone all cuddly and inclusive  Confused

Nope again.
Just keep repeating the same idea that its multi-culturism isn't going to make it so.

This is weird.
Me attacking multiculturism and you defending it. It's like a parallel universe.

Very likely.

They're a European company though. They shouldn't be forcing American ads on us.
They should remake it. With Lulu.

Ladsnet I lived in America for 10 years saying holidays literally is covering all the bases, that is what it means, no matter how much you say no it doesn’t change that.

A bit like those car adverts where they are driving on the right in a left-hand-drive car, the 'small print' at the bottom of the ad states 'vehicle may not be UK specification...'

Or the really annoying ones where they have clearly over-dubbed English voices & made no attempt to lip-sync at all...

I'm not talking about what it means in America.

This is not America.

Kinda the point of the thread.

So what part of the uk adopting a phrase that is inclusive to all cultures celebrations upsets you !

I genuinely fail to see any reason why you would be upset about this, it’s not like American stuff has just started being incorporated into Britain, it’s been happening for a while now.
