Today’s “Word of the Day” is “schadenfreude” and it is a noun meaning “delight, pleasure, happiness, joy, gladness, elation (in someone else’s misfortune/pain) (This German word is derived from Schaden ‘harm/damage’ and Freude ‘joy’)“.
Example Sentence: It might be tempting to indulge in a bout (short period) of vaccine schadenfreude. Once derided (ridiculed) for its initial Covid responses – late lockdowns, poor test-and-trace programmes – the UK has triumphed with its vaccine rollout programme while the EU has floundered (struggled). But as Covid continues to spread across Europe, Britain’s borders will have to remain closed. As the slogan goes: nobody is safe until everyone is safe.
