    occasion is used to mean some undefined celebration event, like perhaps a wedding or birthday, a funeral (although I am not certain that funerals qualify as "occasions" due to the lack of associated festivities), or Hanukkah, Christmas, Festivus perhaps.

    Those events might not be specifically thought of as "holidays" to some or many people, so we use a basket term like "occasion" to satisfy the purpose. If you want to pretend it wasn't a holiday, fine, but it would still be an occasion, an event like a holiday would be, whether you call it a holiday or not.

    It means more English written by non-English speakers. Maybe "during the holiday or occasion period" is supposed to mean "on a holiday or similar occasion."

    Cash can can be given to someone on the occasion of their birthday or bar mitzvah or marriage.
