We need a new word: Excessmas

Christmas treeThe English language needs a new word, for the celebration of excess that occurs every December. I have suggested “Excessmas,” and my suggestion was published in The Wall Street Journal. Excessmas has nothing to do with Nativity because Nativity is the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth — a joyful and nonmaterialistic holiday. People of all faiths can find value in separating Nativity from Excessmas.
