gala vs jamboree what difference

what is difference between gala and jamboree

English

Etymology 1

From French gala, or directly from that word’s etymon, which is either Italian gala, or Spanish gala, both meaning “festive occasion”, and derived from Old French gale (rejoicing). (The French word likely kept the final -a to avoid homophony with gale (scabies).) Ultimately cognate to gallant and hence probably from Frankish *wala (good, well).
