So many wonderful words that we only ever really use at Christmas. I’ve not written a story based entirely at Christmas yet and I’m missing out on all these wonderful words…
So, it got me thinking. I remember a time when I was a teenager and a friend was sleeping over. We couldn’t sleep and were talking quietly. The subject morphed into things that made us laugh and words came up as a topic… there were a lot of words that made us giggle just saying them… Frock was the one I’ve always remembered – who says frock nowadays? 😉 Tickle always makes me smile. I’m not sure if its an English saying but, Collywobbles is hilarious! Malarkey… what a great word and I use it often!
We got in trouble of course, laughing so much that my mum banged on the door with a very firm ‘go to sleep’ 🙂
So, which words do you love and why?
