P.J. O’Rourke is commenting on how the spending from Christmas seems to last well beyond the holidays themselves. By saying Christmas begins in early December with office parties, he’s noting that the festive season and spending starts well before Christmas Day. He then says it doesn’t really end until mid-April of the next year.

This is when people typically file their taxes and fully realize just how much they spent over the Christmas/holiday period. So while the celebrations themselves may only last a few weeks, the financial impact according to O’Rourke lasts for months as people account for their spending from late in the previous year.
