Do you ‘celebrate’ in the evening?

We have a word for the time at the end of a work day here in Germany. It’s “Feierabend”. So how can we translate that into English? We don’t have a word for it.

If you want to wish someone “schönen Feierabend”, you’d just say “Enjoy your evening” or “Have a nice evening”. Or if you want to explain what you do “nach Feierabend”, you’d have to say “After work I do ….”.
