Stuart's Daily Word Spot: Bacchanalia

Bacchanalia: noun - named from the Roman god of wine, Bacchus; a Roman festival celebrated with dancing, song, and revelry; orgy.

‘After they left Glastonbury, one group of festival goers bought large quantities of cheap wine and took it to a local field where grass still grew. There, abandoning clothes along with cares, their spontaneous party quickly developed into a Bacchanalia, with obvious consequences for all involved.’

Picture: Flowers in Palm Court, Sissi, Crete. Far from Bacchanalian.
