Decwhorator

Created by: purpleartichokes

Pronunciation: DEK-hor-ay-ter

Sentence: My friend, Wendy, is such a decwhorator that she has an entire month's worth of festive sweat shirts and sweaters. The one with Snoopy carrying the plate of cookies is cute, but the snow scene sweat shirt with a little stuffed kid tacked on to a spot where he appears to be sledding down Mt. Mammary, well, I think it's slightly obscene.

Etymology: decorator, whore (an obsessed person)

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")
