Simply because one word won't do…

Shorter Break

Seen before:3,272 times

I noticed this seasonal booboo last December (2015). Somehow Boxing Day was being observed on the same day as Christmas Day. That implied most people would have a shorter break than they’d planned.

The calendar problem was resolved a few days later, when Boxing Day observed was moved to the correct date.

I’m not aware of any seasonal blunders since.
