Word of the Week – February 27, 2021



French, 17th century

A noisy mock serenade performed by a group of people to celebrate a marriage or mock an unpopular person. A series of discordant noises.

Example: Watching the charivari of conservatives in Orlando reminds me of the Saturday morning cartoons of my childhood.
