Wednesday Word of the Day
Libation \ly-BAY-shun\, noun:
1. The act of pouring a liquid (usually wine) either on the ground or on a victim in sacrifice to some deity; also, the wine or liquid thus poured out.
2. A beverage, especially an alcoholic beverage.
3. An act or instance of drinking.
~Now here's one of the things I like best about the word of the day. When I first saw this word pop up, I thought, well who doesn't know what libation means! heh heh, duh! Apparently, not me...or at least not all of the definitions. It's the act of pouring....not just the drinking of a liquid. Who knew!~
