The sum of all festivities taking place around the middle of winter (Northern hemisphere). This triumph of political correctness was invented in 1998 by Birmingham City Council. It is a contraction of winter and interval. It embraces the mix of Neopagan, Jewish, African American, Christian and secular fesitivals that occur at this time.
"Happy non-denominational, multi-cultural mid-winter festival Alan."
"Probably not, Ray, I'm going to my parents for Winterval. But thanks anyway."
