Holiday Tree?

The town where I live is kicking off a month of Holiday Festivities, where Holiday songs will be sung, Holiday treats will be eaten, Holiday movies will be watched, and a Holiday tree will be lit.

Is Holiday some new kind of holiday? Did I miss its establishment? Is there some new religion whose grand feast is Holiday?

Or, if it is a generic description not meant to offend anyone in a diverse culture, it must mean "any holiday." If it is the "any holiday" season, then, given our diversity, isn't every season the Holiday Season?

Felix Saturnalium, I guess.
