    Re: opportunity/occasion

    An opportunity is a circumstance that is favorable for you to achieve a goal or get something you want:

    Her retirement party gave her colleagues an opportunity to wish her well.
    Looking downfield, the player saw an opportunity to score a goal.

    An occasion is a particular event or time:

    On the occasion of his birthday, we ate a special meal.
    The funeral was a mournful occasion.
