Coniferocious

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: cone iffer oshus

Sentence: Douglas Fir was a mild-mannered sap. His bark was certainly worse than his bite. He ran a Branch Office for his company and struggled to maintain profitability. Out of frustration, he ran for local politics and was elected. He was a coniferocious campaigner. People always used him to get votes and persuade the policymakers, but Doug would have no such influence. He just wanted to be the town Christmas Tree and light up peoples' lives. The only problem he had was that he shed a few thousand needles a day and when Christmas was finally over, he was a stick with lights on him. Needleless to say, his detractors who were larchly the undeciduous voters,would plant false stories about him in the cyPress. Despite what they said, he campaigned for the EverGreen Party. He was a tree Fir the People!

Etymology: conifer ( any gymnospermous tree or shrub bearing cones) & ferocious (marked by extreme and violent energy)

Holidazed

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: holly dazed

Sentence: Like a good shepard, we watered the flock on our tree. Yet, flocks of needles fell to the floor. Prickly pairs of party animals, all spruced up, rollicked fir hours, drooping into the pine droppings. They eventually decked the halls, wherever they fell, not even aroused by herds of belles. All (people and trees) were thoroughly holidazed.

Etymology: Holidays, Dazed

Created by: petaj

Pronunciation: shoog-a-plum-at

Sentence: Natalie vowed that this year there would be no sugarplummating at the office Christmas party. Despite the litres of eggnog she had consumed last year, the memory of the rum ball crumbs squashed into the carpet over her head, the sneering laugh of her colleagues and the realisation that she could not get any lower was still crystal clear in her mind.

Etymology: sugar plum fairy (Christmas visitor) + plummet (fall down) + mat (rug)
