Why Holiday Balladay?
It started with a ridiculous rhyme my wife and I came up with a couple of summers ago. We felt after a long winter we deserved a Holiday. For some reason we were on a kick in calling ourselves a couple of ballers. Which quickly evolved into a dorky rap. "Holiday. Balladay. Everyday's a holiday!"
But what is a Balla (or Baller)?
Etymology: Middle English 'bal', from Old Norse 'bollr' and akin to Old High German 'balla'; combined with the commin suffix 'er' denoting one that does or performs (a specified action)
Therefore, a baller is, literally, 'one who balls'. (See UrbanDictionary)
Other connotations of the word include:
1. One who exhibits a consistent proficency at-, or exuberant love for the game of basketball.
2. One whose person has been fully and successfully established in numerous social circles (esp. one who is extremely popular with both the male and female members of any given social group)
3. One whose status in society has been earned by one's possession of "game" (that is, proficiency at the game of life)
1. Exhibiting those qualities of a baller; not limited to the description of a person, 'baller' may be used to describe any place, thing or situation.
1. "This place is ballin"
