Word of the Day

Today is Easter Sunday, 2016.  
In looking for something to write about this morning, I came across the word Inhumation.  
It is a perfectly good English word, but one I had never seen before.  
Based on the Latin in humare, and the antonym of exhumation, Inhumation simply means burial.  Literally, in humus (dirt).
The fact that inhumation so closely resembles inhuman is simply a coincidence.
