word-fetti
 n.— «And this year, the party paper will be inscribed with such goodwill messages as “peace’”celebrate” and “dance,” according to event coordinator Treb Heining. “It’s inspirational,” Heining said of the celebration, which is sponsored by retailer Target. Beginning at 7 p.m. a countdown at the top of each hour will prompt a 1,000-pound torrent of the flame-proof notes, called word-fetti. Fireworks will accompany the first five confetti drops leading up to the finale.» —“Blizzard of paper for Times Sq. bash” by William Sherman New York Daily News (New York City) Dec. 27, 2006.
