Wordy Wednesday

Oh, September. So far you have not disappointed me! The cooler breezes feel wonderful, and I don’t even mind the clouds and rain. It’s cozy.

Today’s word makes me picture a gaudy New Year’s Eve party:

Clinquant

Clinquant is an adjective that means “glittering with gold or tinsel.” It was first used in 1591 and comes from Middle French, from present participle of clinquer to glitter; literally, to clink.

Everyone loves a little gold, right?
