I cannot figure out what 'family holiday' in the question below means - a day that is a celebration of something special with your whole family or an occasion when you and your family take some time away from work for pleasure??
When was your last family holiday?
Google gave lots of hits for the second meaning; but I don't understand why we cannot refer to a day when we celebrate something together as a 'family' holiday.
Thank you very much in advance.
And what do you say when you refer to a day when you celebrate something?
For example, Christmas has always been considered a family holiday in Russia. Does that make any sense?
