Decorat

karenanne

Created by: karenanne

Pronunciation: DEK o rat

Sentence: Val Egurl was that special form of mallrat, the "Decorat." She obsessively purchased every holiday-themed item that she deemed to be "cute." She could no longer park in her garage because it was stuffed full of boxes, carefully labeled and color-coded for each major and minor holiday. She festooned both her house and herself with decorations for the relevant occasion. She even had lights up on her house year-round. But not just any lights - these were multicolored and synchronized to music, AND both the colors and the music corresponded to the holiday. On the Fourth of July, the lights were red, white, and blue, and the Star-Spangled Banner and other patriotic songs played. On Halloween, the lights were orange and black, and spooky music emanated. Not to mention Christmas - well, you get the idea.

Etymology: decorate + rat

Sillybrate

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Silly-brate

Sentence: Sally sparkled and tinkled as she walked, the bells on her shoes making them look elfinesque, while her large fat-santa ear-rings flashed incessantly beside her red-dyed hair. When the door opened her colleagues inevitably looked up, their gaze drawn by reflex and some would emit a groan equally reflexively. "Season's Greetings!" she would smile at everyone, glowing with holiday glee as she bounded about the office in a flurry of red, green and gold, flashing lights and ringing bells. Until she bumped into Adrian, greying cubicle curmudgeon: "Oh, stop-it, you silly girl!" he snapped, having heard enough bells for the day. "If you don't go away or get rid of that crap I'll forcibly de-festoon you, sillybrate!"

Etymology: Silly - the very [] overuse of tinsel, bells, lights, fat flashing light santas, present-shaped ear-rings and other festoonery foisted on us by the over-indulgent foistooners of the season. Celebrate - what is commonly supposed to happen on special or seasonal occasions, and usually involving a modicum of merriment, mead, melee and possibly mistle-toe..
