Pronunciation: in tin syl ate

Sentence: Every year, Aunt Thelma would light the candles, put on some Christmas music, and pour herself a Doctor Wilson before trimming the Christmas tree. At first, every ornament was carefully hung in the perfect spot but, long after midnight (and seven or eight Doctor Wilsons) she would be so intinselated that she would begin hurling ornaments at the tree until she was satisfied it was complete. Then Uncle Stan carried her off to bed.

Etymology: intoxicated + tinsel

Pronunciation: dug list fur

Sentence: The town fathers had ordered a large evergreen to be planted in the main square, so that it may be decorated each Christmas Season as the "First Tree". A huge Douglas Fir had been imported from the West and although healthy and full, it had a definite lean to it. They nicknamed it the DuglistFir. At first people laughed at the Leaning Tree, but miraculously on Christmas Eve it had straightened out and stood erect. The people were amazed until they realized that this change was inevitable. The town in question was not called Viagra Falls for nothing!

Etymology: Dug (created by digging); List (lean or tilt to one side) & Fir (any of various evergreen trees of the genus Abies; chiefly of upland areas, popular as a Christmas Tree)and word play on Douglas Fir (tall evergreen timber tree of western North America having resinous wood and short needles)
