How do you describe the year-end holidays in Japanese Kanji?

If you want to buy or make greeting cards written in Japanese Kanji, here are our ideas.

"The end of the year" =年末( ねんまつ )
「年」= "year ",
「末」= "end ".
The pronunciation of this word is "nen-matsu ".

"New Year's Eve" =大晦日( おおみそか )
「大」= "big ",
「晦」= "disappear ",
「日」= "day ".
The pronunciation this word is "oo-miso-ka
".

晦日 means "The end of the year "same as 年末.
But 大晦日 is the word for New Year's Eve.
