Holidaze

noun; blending
The dazed state before, during, and after the holidays, whether induced by shopping, food, or too much exposure to family.
 
The clever blending isn’t used much outside of the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so that limits its spread throughout the language. Also, the term became popular on the internet so the people who knew about it first had to be in tune with technology. Holidaze has also been extended to refer to the popular stoner holiday of 4/20. So has “holiblaze” for more than obvious reasons.
Etymology : From “holiday” and “daze” referring to time period and state of mind
