But whether or not you agree, every day spent trying to spot something palmary is a day happier than one not.
Spot the Frippet: something palmary. This word comes from the Latin palmārius, and is to do with the palm of victory. Palms were long believed to make a connection between heaven and earth, and so became the symbol of various gods, and also of the people who worshiped them. This led to Cimon of Athens making part of a monument to the Greek victory at the battle of Eurymedon in the shape of a palm tree (it also enabled him to make a pun, because the Greek for palm tree was phoinix and the defeated enemy were the Phoenicians).
Palm leaves were later given to the winners of races, a habit which spread round the ancient world.
Nowadays, something palmary is something deserving of praise.
