fete n. [ˈfāt, ˈfet]: a large party or celebration (via)

The entire city looked forward to the annual fete, which kicked off the summer festivities.

For the Love of a Linguaphile has been going strong for 100 weeks! It only felt proper to celebrate a little bit 🙂

For the Love of a Linguaphile is a weekly series celebrating the snazzy words we encounter, from those found in great literary works, to those pesky words that keep popping up in everyday life. Hopefully you can incorporate a new word into your vocabulary, or even share one of your favorite words!
