English term or phrase:cultural remission
Although the pub is very much part of English culture, it also has its own social micro-climate. Like all drinking-places, it is in some respects a liminal zone, an equivocal, marginal, borderline state, in which one finds a degree of "cultural remission" - a structured, temporary relaxation or suspension of normal social controls (also known as "legitimized deviance" or "time-out behaviour").
