You're Doing It All Wrong!

I would advise reading this and then changing our ways immediately.

I'm sure many of you already knew that huzzay was a period cheer, but like me probably thought it was an alternative to huzzah. But their research looks pretty solid and I'm convinced that huzzay is the only right way to exclaim our joy or strike fear into the frogs.

I'm sure we're all agreed that our goal is to get things right, so I suggest we adopt this forthwith. It may also have the added bonus of annoying the staff, which can never be a bad thing!  q21

So we might as well all be shouting "Hoorah!" and as it turns out "huzzah" is the 19th century equivalent of alooominum (o's added for effect lol)
"You say 'tomato' and I say.... 'twat!'"
Dave will be pleased as huzza rhymes with gay.

I think this was brought to the attention of the NA powers that be some years ago. With predictable results. Cue, 'its only a hobby' and 'why do you stitchcounters have to ruin everything with history'. Or the new rant, 'you're bullying us!'

They don't need Huzzay when they have the Tiger - which they are all infernal scrubs anyway .

I suppose this is where the alternative "Hooray" is derived from ?

Hip, Hip,  HUZZAY ?
