Probably the most impressive outcome of this game is that I have FINALLY learned how to spell thesaurus. Simply Amazing!
For those who are new here today, the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday are as follows:
First and foremost, leave as many funny definitions for either word (or both) as you can think up in the comments!! The ones that make me laugh the hardest will be given the Silly Goose Award.
Next, if you know (or think you know) the true definitions without looking them up then be sure and leave those in the comments too!! All definitions that are correct (or close enough for government work and Mighty Mom) will win the Smarty Pants Award!
Awards will be given out in Saturday's post, so don't forget to come and see if you won!

And here's a little trivia from Mr Webster about something I've refused to write for several years.
Xmas - Christmas usage The abbreviation Xmas for Christmas dates from the mid-16th cent.

It is not used in formal writing.
Interesting.....so using Xmas is NOT taking Christ out of Christmas after all....hmmmm
