Apokolokyntosis


This is probably my most random post to date, but I can’t guarantee that I won’t have any more that are way far out of the blue.

apokolokyntosis

OK. Now, I now I’ve just blown you away with this amazing word. It’s a play on the Greek word “Apotheosis,” which means “deification,” used later when Roman Emperors died and were then deified and worshiped by the Roman people.

But I still haven’t answered the burning desire in your heart, have I? *Drumroll*

It means “pumpkinification!” How great is that?! So, due to apokolokyntosis, Cinderella’s coach was no more.

I love words!

Here’s some context as to the creation of the word.

Thanks to Kristin Cashore and her blog, for this grand revelation of one of the best words ever!
