Sentence: Joanne didn’t know she was noelosingit until Christmas morning when she couldn’t find the turkey planned for that night’s dinner. It was only then that she realized that, in a wrapping frenzy on Christmas Eve she had wrapped the turkey, 2 cans of cranberry sauce and 5 pounds of potatoes. As she quietly unwrapped her erroneous gifts she wondered if the images of Santa that had bled through the wrapping paper would remain after the baking.

Etymology: Noel (Christmas) + losing it (having things get out of hand, going slightly nuts)
