    Default Christmas issue

    When you use the phrase 'Christmas issue' of any magazines, do you mean 'special and additional issue beside the regular one'?

    Thank you and wish your(i.e. our) safe moving.

    It can do- many magazines produce a special issue at Christmas with extra articles.

    Do you mean the company publishs the magazines twice in a month?
    Or was it that the company substitutes the regular one with the special issue, which means one stuff in one month?

    Thank you.

    My guess is that it would be an extra issue in addition to the regular (monthly) issue.

    Some weekly magazines publish a double issue before Christmas, then take a holiday the next week.
