    "I haven't seen him just after Christmas"

    Hello.
    Yesterday we had a listening test at school and there was a sentence "I haven't seen uncle Andy just after Christmas".
    The question was "When has the speaker seen uncle Andy last time?"
    I thought that it was on Christmas day. Is that right?

    I have no idea, but your sentence is not correct.

    It could be "I haven't seen Uncle Andy since just after Christmas." If it were "on Christmas Day", a different sentence would be required.

    Thank you. Your sentence is correct, I just forgot about 'since'. Now everything is clear.
