Frabjous means wonderful or extraordinary. Frabjous started as a nonce word in Lewis Carrol’s Jabberwocky and is most likely a combination of the words fair, fabulous, and joyous.
Frabjous was first seen and read in the Jabberwocky poem as “O frabjous day!”, and indeed it ’twas since the infamous Jabberwocky had been defeated! Frabjous, from that usage, means something joyous, wonderful, superb or deliciously delightful and quite honestly frabjous is a frabjously terrific word! On the other side of the spectrum there is mimsy and once you get through a mimsy mood you can become quite frabjous in your countenance!
This is my idea of a frabjous little daily moment…how about you?
I am really into creating and discovering frabjous moments in my day-to-day. Whether it’s a quiet moment of perfect silence, a fantastic view, a sweet cuddle with one of my fur babies, a chortle with friends, fun surprises or anything else, I’m all about frabjous delights! It’s the frabjousness of each day that make life the gift that it is! Also, just how much fun are the words that Lewis Carrol gifted us?!
