It may still be cold and wintry, but love is in the air, so things are heating up, of a fashion.
February hosts the most loved and despised of holidays – Valentine’s Day. Every year, more than 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are sold across the United States. Heck, even 9 million people buy something for their pets. But take a stroll through social media anywhere near February 14th to find out what your single friends think of the so-called “love month.”
They just need to find themselves a Word of the Week.
An endearing word: as, My dear nug; my dear love.
And here’s one’s dearest nug…at least prior to marriage.
- Slang term taken from the 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue.
