Weird Word Day: Lagniappe

Lagniappe

[Pronounced LAWN-yap. Or, LANNY-yap] An unexpected gift. Or, an extra, additional benefit received after making a purchase.

What I Thought It Meant:

The practice of taking a nap on a lawn after eating a large amount of lasagna. Whatever. But I hope your Christmas has been filled with joy and happiness, and a largesse of lagniappes.
