Festifanatic

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /fes-ti-fuh-nat-ik/

Sentence: Every year, on the first day of December, Liz turned into a complete festifanatic. Yet, rather than trying to infect her friends and fellow workers with the holiday spirit, she would instead criticize their lack of spirit and accuse them of being 'ornamentally challenged,' which only further alienated everyone. Liz would always end up spending her holidays alone, despite all her enthusiasm.

Etymology: festive - "of, relating to, or appropriate for a feast or festival." (Latin, féstīvus - "merry") + fanatic (Latin, fānāticus - "pertaining to a temple, inspired by orgiastic rites, frantic")

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..
