Usage notes[edit]

  • As חג (khag, holiday) is used by some speakers to mean “holiday” in a very generic sense, and by others to mean specifically a religious holiday (with not all religious holidays even necessarily counting), so חג שמח (khag saméakh) is used on different holidays by different speakers.
