the worthless word for the day is: feriation
[fr. L. feriari < feria, holiday]
obs. holiday keeping; cessation of work
<a welcome midwinter feriation - D. Grambs>
"[A]s though there were any feriation in nature..."
- Sir Th. Browne, Pseudodoxia (1646)
"Simple feriation was enough for the weekend.
No binges, no feasts."
- Coleman Barks from New Words,
White Trash, ed. by Robert Grey (1976)
