Greetings!

In the US, the holiday season starts on Thanksgiving Day and continues to after the New Year.

Interesting.
While "Joyeux Noël" (Merry Christmas) and "Bonnes Fêtes" (~ Seasons Greetings) is something you definitely wish to your friends in December here in France, it is considered inappropriate not to wait January the 1st at midnight for a "Bonne Année" (Happy New Year). The latter can be sent on the whole month of January, but no later nor sooner.

PS: How is "Asia Pacific" the US ?

Sorry, what does living in Asia have to do with Holiday Wishes for the US?

Do you also complain about the colors of the Christmas wrappings when people give you a present or analyze the size of the greeting card ? Smilie

Sorry, I wasn't aware that time restriction was specific to the French culture.

My best wishes for all unix.com mods, members and visitors !

Yes, in the US, we start seasonal greetings at the Thanksgiving Holidays.

The world is bigger than France Smilie

PS: We very much appreciate our French members and visitors!

Statistically speaking, just to let you know, the largest number of visitors to this forum, by a very big number, are from the US. Where there is a major US holiday, our traffic falls considerable (like yesterday).

And if one is in marketing, the season seems to start on July 4 Smilie .

I also was not aware of the -- rigidity is not the correct word-- formality of the appropriateness of greetings in French society. It's always good to learn how to be in accordance with customs ... cheers, drl
