Yuletide Definition: Christmas time. The word Yule comes from Old English, giuli, which was what the Anglo-Saxons called the two-month mid-winter period of time. The word, giuli, comes from Older English geol or geola, which comes from the Old Nors word jol, which was the name for the heathen feast that later became the Christian Christmas feast. The word Yuletide is old but became popular again the first part of the 20th century – there are even Christmas songs that use the term!
Examples of Yuletide in a sentence: “Let’s enjoy this yuletide by singing Christmas carols and spending time with family!”
