Thursday last, I got to counting the days before Christmas and this childhood habit brought to mind the term "penultimate" to describe the day before the Eve of Christmas and then to "antepenultimate" to describe the day prior to that.My verbal obsession naturally posited the question "What's the term describing the day before the antepenultimate day?" My wife says it's "Four shopping days till Christmas!" I'm hoping there's a more elegant possibility.
