So what exactly is Nostomania anyway? A friend of mine was surprised to see the word turn up on his Word-of-the-day email subscription, where he learned:
nostomania (nos-tuh-MAY-nee-uh, -mayn-yuh) noun
An overwhelming desire to return home or to go back to familiar places.
[From Greek nostos (a return home) + mania (excessive enthusiasm or madness).]
You can consider nostomania to be an extreme form of nostalgia (literally, pain for home).
Don't forget, all you have to do is create a single Collection, Wantlist, or Salelist item during the appropriate month to qualify for our sweepstakes. Why not take a look and see what we're giving away (and gave away last month), free as always.
Thanks, we'll see you all next month.
