look up any word, like donkey punch:
 
1.
When a business decision or project is delayed due to the chaos of days off, vacations and general apathy towards the end of December.
Worker 1: You know how we were hoping to make the purchase by December 15th. We missed that so it won't happen until January.

Worker 2: Another holidelay. Now the project won't get finished until spring.
