Word Nerd : Eldritch

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsy

eldritch-definition-word-nerd-via-lawhimsyWith Halloween, Samhain and The Day of the Dead so very close at hand, I felt that an otherworldly sort of word would be quite fitting and eldritch is a rather delightful word with Old English/Scottish origins (both of which are deliciously filled with otherworldly history, myths and lore). May your day be filled with all sorts of pleasant, eldritch occurrences – and for those who are being affected by Sandy I hope that you and your dear ones are safe and secure!
