Hallow \HAL-oh\ , verb;
1. To make holy; sanctify; consecrate
1. Hallo
1. To shout or chase with cries of "hallo!"

According to
This word comes from Old English halgian ("to make holy, to honor as holy") which is related to halig ("holy"). Halig comes from Proto-Germanic *khailig which is also related to the modern English word health.

This word should have been last month, don't you think? Around Halloween perhaps?

*Today's word and the first definition were both taken from's 'Word of the Day' for Friday, November 19
