"freighted with meaning"

Posted by ESC on November 22, 2001

In the local newpaper on Thanksgiving Day, it says the holiday is "freighted with meaning" because of Sept. 11. I have only seen "fraught with meaning." (World Book Dictionary -- adjective, of a vessel laden; noun, Scottish, burden, load).

Anyway. We are having a Happy (Vegetarian) Thanksgiving. Ditto what Bruce said. Hope your holiday is happy too. Even if you do eat turkey.
