Did you make merry last night in this politically correct world may be almost as problematic as the question, did you make Mary last night? Did you get married last night is a different form of the word and may be less problematic, depending upon who asks the question.
Merry (adjective) – cheerful and lively; season or occasion characterized by festivity and rejoicing; a slightly good-humored drunk
Marry (verb) – to join or enter into marriage; to cause to meet or combine, to splice the ends of a line together without increasing their girth
Mary (name) – Frequent biblical name, the most famous is Mary, the Mother of Jesus. In Hebrew it means wished for child, rebellion, bitter.
Merry is virtually an onomatopoeia word. You can almost hear the jingle bells ring when saying the word out loud. Just think of Carol of the Bells.
“Mary, let’s make merry,” he said.
“Not until after you marry me,” she replied. “A girl can’t be too careful.”
You should not marry oysters with red wine, they are better with a crisp white like sauvignon blanc. However, you can marry the mooring lines that you use to tie up the oyster boat. If you have profitable catch, then you can become merry with your profits.
