Spritzing: This Pennsylvania Dutch-ism is all wet
From commenter Dianne comes a good Yorkism: Spritzing.
She mentioned it as in “raining very lightly.” (Then there’s also “make wet” for rain, as in, “It’s going to make wet today.”)
With spritz, I also use it to describe what I do to my hair in the morning with a water bottle. In fact, we call it the “spritz bottle.”
And then there are spritz cookies, but I can’t tell that name is related to the Pennsylvania Dutch “spritz” or not.
Any ideas about the cookies? And for my German-language friends, what’s the origin of spritz?
