This blog is for everyone who uses words.

The ordinary-sized words are for everyone, but the big ones are especially for children.

Sunday Rest: yule.

Yule isn't the prettiest word. Well, if it was, it wouldn't rhyme with cruel, mule, and drool.

I'm afraid that the sticky-sweet and nauseating seasonal confection called a yule log only makes things worse.

Still, the word does give a fair impression of what you feel like doing after you've been required to eat one, doesn't it.

Word Not To Use Today: yule. This word comes from the Old English winter pagan feast called geōla.
