clickmas

noun; blending
Christmas season characterized by online sales and shopping activities. The writer was trying to describe Christmas in 2005, when Internet shopping continues to grow. Many people now shop online for gifts exclusively, and the use of click reflects the action of following hyperlinks in online listings of merchandise by pressing the mouse button. At many places, the holiday has lost its religious roots and has turned into a season of enthusiastic purchasing for avid shoppers. The witty use of click also rhymes with Christ-.
 
Happy Clickmas
Etymology : blend from Chrismas 'the Christian holiday' and click 'the depression of the mouse button'
