Definition: Pareidolia (pronounced: pa-REI-do-lia); Greek; noun
1. Recognition of images in random patterns.
Why I love this word:
Remember when you would lay down on the grass, in a park, on a sunny day, and just cloud watch? Looking for images within the clouds, trying to find figures and animals, as you make up stories and let your imagination roam free. This great phenomenon has a word and it is called pareidolia.
