Wordy Wednesday!


This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is;

Jamboree


- A carousel
- Noisy merrymaking
- A large gathering, usually including a series of speeches and entertainment

This word is an Americanism and is supposedly a mix of the words Jabber and Shivaree, it is thought to have entered into English in the mid 1800's.

'The air of excitement throughout the village had been gradually increasing as the day wore on and it's inhabitants frantically prepared for the Jamboree taking place that evening.'


Challenge;

Comment a short piece of prose, flash fiction, or even just a sentence, using this word. It would be great to see what you come up with!
