Period before Christmas (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

advent

'period before christmas' is the definition.
(advent is the period leading up to Christmas Day)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for advent that I've seen before include "Forty days preceding Christmas" , "Second Coming" , "Coming - occasion in Church calendar" , "when the Christmas shopping has to be done?" , "Coming (of Christmas)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent, The Telegraph and The Times.
