primer lunes del año
Explanation:
Handsel Monday is the first Monday of the year, particularly as used to be celebrated in Scotland and northern England. Among the rural population of Scotland, Auld Hansel Monday, is traditionally celebrated on the first Monday after the 12th of January.

The "handsel" refers to small tips and gifts of money that it was customary to give at the beginning of the first working week of a new year. In this respect it is somewhat similar to Boxing Day.

Creo que para nosotros no tiene ninguna significancia especial, por lo menos en Colombia, y tal término no sirve para orientar hacia nada.
