Some slight tweaks to the comp for 2020... 

Every week we're going to have a poll about the definition of a forgotten or obscure word. From the four options pick the definition you believe to be the correct one. Voters who pick the correct definition go into the draw for an El Pres Sampler!!  :party: (Drawn Tuesday morning, Brisbane time. Please note: Polls don't show on Tapatalk, but you can participate via a web version of the site)

NO GOOGLING OR DICTIONARY USE! We're using the honour system. It's just a bit of fun. If you know, you know. If you don't, have a stab in the dark or an educated guess (if you prefer that term). ;)

You may elaborate about your choice in the topic thread below if you wish but no posting of any official definitions, etc., that will give away the game for others. 

Now you know the drill, vote away! :thumbsup: Good luck and may this comp prove to be a fun palaestra that turns us all into better word-grubbers, if you know what I mean...

Finally got one.  Used to think I was pretty well-read.  I don't know how the heck you locate these.

I asked my dad what a 'yule-hole' was and he told me that, as an unmarried man, I shouldn't be asking such questions.  He's old fashioned that way..

"She looked on disgustingly, as I shifted my belt to the yule-hole. The yule-hole I was in this year was surely due to my trying to win back her affections. However, it was a complete yule-hole, as she still looked on me with disdain. I was certainly in a yule-hole this Christmas, as I knew what I truly wanted, would not be beneath the tree."

Almost went with the correct option then second guessed myself.

I've got to pass on it this time.  I asked the question out loud with friends hoping for guesses and instead got a google lookup from one of them.  Honestly, there's no way I would have guessed correctly.  I like @Drguano 's answer the best.  Makes the most sense.

Can’t believe I guessed wrong. The correct answer is definitely the one I can relate to most.
