I learned today two new, related words. They are wonderfully joyous and beautiful and I don’t ever remember hearing them or reading about them before today.
The first (what for me personally is a neologism ) is apricity, which I learned is a term used for “the warmth of sun in winter.” (I liked that definition better than the simple “warmth of the sun”). I never new there was a word for that most wonderful event of feeling the warm sun on a winter day.
The second word, related to the first which I also thought was such a warm and wonderful term is apricate – to bask in the sun. I had never heard this sunbathing term before but fell in love with the word. Any day that one can apricate is a good day!
