The Word of the Week is…’well-hallowed’. This word is part of a speech from Hamlet, celebrating the wholesome Christmas period. We would like to wish you all a wonderful holiday. If you are still looking for presents to send, check out the Globe online shop for ideas!

Word of the Week: ‘well-hallowed’ (adj.) – well-blessed, well-consecrated

‘Some say that ever, ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long;
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow’d and so gracious is the time.’
