This is’s word of the day today. It sounds disturbing, but it means “twilight, dusk”. Hardly as ominous as it sounds. The word comes to us from the Latin, they say, around the year 1400.

It just struck me as odd, and I thought you might be entertained by it. Hard to imagine using it in a sentence, though does give examples. Try it on your friends tonight!

    Crepuscular is one of my favorite words. Being interested in reptiles and amphibians, I ran into it at a fairly young age.

    • It is a worthy word, I am sure, if a little odd to the profane ear.

  2. Too late… I should have used this headline: “The Crepuscule Zone, anyone?”
    I thought of that this morning and got a laugh out of myself, so thought I’d share it with the world, quietly.
