Hollycost

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: haw lee kost

Sentence: Holly Kost did it every year. From the minute Halloween ended, she started to decorate everything in her world with Christmas decorations. We are talking every inch inside and out of her yard, house, garage, car, plus her entire floor at work, her kids, her dog & cat, her spouse and herself. Every year she spent more and more money on new treasures. When she grudgingly took down her Christmas excess, just before Valentine's Day, she realized that she no longer had enough room to store away all her stuff at home. It was then that she decided to rent a big storage unit and pile everything into it. Sure, it was expensive, but so worth it, because she could also buy more stuff next year. Her hubby shook his head sadly, my wife is a YuleFool, she knows Noelimits, she's a Mistletroll, she knows Snowboundaries, she's a FiggyPudding, I think she hit herself on the old EggNoggin a long time ago and maybe we should put her in a Santatarium. Each year Holly Kost hollycost him more and more!

Etymology: Holly (Decorative Christmas plant with red berries) & Cost (the total spent for goods or services including money and time and labor)& Holocaust (an act of great destruction/loss)

Sentence: Mary-Chris Mass has for obvious reasons become obsessed with festooning herself, her car, her house and her work space with Christmas decorations. Her efforts to wornament herself, family and colleages has actually paid off. They find it easier to conform to her wishes than to resist. In fact they carry the theme year-round. The office is now painted red and green and holly, ivy, poinsettias and mistletoe grow in the office atrium. Because her office is a call centre conducting market research, the building is now being called the North Poll!
