English term or phrase:The Twelve Days of Christmas
Help! Does anybody know what this Western festive period is called in Chinese? Do we have a specific term for it?
Explanation: 1. "SHENGDAN JIE"=圣诞节
In China, Christmas is called "SHENGDAN JIE", but this can all be used to imply the whole Christmas Holiday Period.
2. "SHENGDAN JIAQI"=圣诞假期
But of course all use another term "SHENGDAN JIAQI" which means Christmas Holiday.
(If you want, I send the Chinese letters in .jpg file).

There is nothing like this in China.
So, you have to translate it literally.
Then add the summary of the twelve days by
listing the gifts for each day after christmas in parenthesis.
