‘Slay’ and ‘sleigh’

SantaIt is getting closer to the time when Father Christmas delivers presents! As he dashes around the world every Christmas Eve, his method of transport is a sleigh.

Santa’s Slay is a film I don’t think I ever need to see.

Slay

  • to kill something in a violent way
  • to delight, impress or amuse someone very much
  • a tool used in weaving

Sleigh

  • a sledge drawn by animals, usually horses (or reindeer!)
  • (sleighing) ride on a sleigh

Here’s ‘Jingle Bells’, with the well-known sleigh-related lyrics:

Feeling Christmassy yet?
