Secular holiday

The nice thing about Christmas in Thailand is that it is purely a commercial holiday. The nasty Christ bits have been pretty much removed from the day. Just Santas, raindeer and elves pepper the malls.

If you grew up in England, Christmas ends on Twelfth Night, defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking".
