Yule Hole


Yule Hole (yool-hole) Noun: -The last hole to which a man is able to stretch his belt at a Christmas dinner.(Shouldn't there be a thanksgiving hole?)

From Yule - from Old English gēol(a) ‘Christmas Day’; compare with Old Norse jól, originally applied to a heathen festival lasting twelve days, later to Christmas.

Used in a sentence: "This year I think I need to add a whole new Yule hole or two to my belt!" Or “Oh, blow it out your Yule hole Santa!”
