Decksess

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: deck-sess

Sentence: Norma was anything but normal over the holidays. To say that she got into the holiday spirit was an understatement to say the least. In fact, she would decorate to decksess. Her house was so brightly lit with twinkie lights that it could be seen from the space shuttle, and her yard was bedecked and littered with moving reindeer, angels, blowup santas, Peanuts characters and huge, giant snow-globes containing Eeyore and Winny-the-Pooh. In her house she had a large Menorah next to her silver Christmas Tree and her Kwanzaa candles. She would come to work wearing reindeer antlers and a large string of twinkie lights around her neck. We found it amusing, then, when we asked her about her religious observance. "I don't believe in the religious stuff," she said, "I just like to decorate."

Etymology: deck: to decorate (as in "Deck the Halls") + excess: exceeding what is normal or sufficient

Yuleogize

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: yool o jiyze

Sentence: Holly Berry and Carol Sing took the Christmas Season very seriously at work. Just as soon as the Halloween decorations had been removed, they decked their cubicles and all other areas of the office with Christmas lights, mistletoe, garlands, Nativity scenes and various decorations. Every year they would buy more to add to their collections. They also decked themselves in Christmas jewellery, attire and headgear. Visitors were agog at their efforts. Little or no real work was done during this time, although the two elves kept themselves working at a fever pitch to achieve the feeling of Christmas. One year they overdid it and expired. Holly Berry was buried and Carol Sing sung her last song. Their boss, Ebenezer McManager did break down and yuleogize them for their spirit and enthusiasm at all things Christmas. People finally appreciated what those girls had done each year for them. In their honor thereafter, he ordered the decorations to stay up year-round so that their spirits would remind the employees of that Christmas feeling.

Etymology: Yule (Christmas Season, Dec.24-Jan.06;also pagan Winter Season Holidays)& Eulogize (praise formally and eloquently)
