WORD CANDY: Haimish

Word Candy is our new feature that showcases underused words which should be made a part of your vocabulary as soon as possible, like today’s word: haimish.  Yiddish in origin, haimish means “homey”, “comfortable”, “a place I feel I belong” or “this is a person I could have a drink with”. It sort of explains this guy’s name, right?

OK, I don’t know how if Haymitch is all that haimish, but there would definitely be drinks if you met him.
