I Love Words: Heliolatry

Word: heliolatry

Pronunciation: \hee-lee-AH-luh-tree\

Function: noun

Date: circa 1828

Definition: sun worship

I am a heliolater. Unfortunately, with my one-standard-deviation-removed-from-albino skin, that’s pretty much like being a person with a nut allergy who would like nothing better than to eat a PB&J (i.e., sad).
