I thank my opponent in advance for accepting this debate and I hope he will enjoy it.

This is a word battle where each person will post one word and the voters may decide who posted a better word.

There will be restrictions on the type of word you can use though.

Rules

1. The word must be appropriate and must not contain any extra meaning.

2. If the word has multiple meanings, then all of the meanings must be appropriate.

3. The characters of the word must be over 4.

4. The word must also be a word that the person already knows and not a word that he will learn later on.

5. Any Word that defies one of the rules shall be considered as a forfeited round. This is to prevent any unnecessary arguing over the opponents word.

6. If the word meets the rules then there may not any negative comments toward whatsoever.

7. The limit of characters shall be 15 to prevent overly large words that either me or my opponent may use.

8. To provide voters with their own chance to cast votes of their own opinions, no comments may be posted in the comments section that may influence the voters decision in any way.

This debate has two rounds because we will each post our one word in the second round.

Once again, I thank my opponent for accepting this debate and hope that he will enjoy this debate ^_^

I wonder I understand the rules right. There seems hardly a word that has single meaning in english. and also I find it hard any meaning of a word can be inappropriate. However still I would choose a word.

'Christmas'

Thank you for the challenge.
