Origin of Phrases - H

 

Holiday

In medieval England, a holy day was designed primarily for worship, so no ordinary tasks were performed at that time. The enforced leisure period inevitably became a time for festivals and amusements to take advantage of the days off from work. Now marked by both fun and worship, the period of observance for the holy day became known as a holiday.
