Seasonal Portmanteaus

These come from Marty B.:

1. Cornucopius: cornucopia+copious - horn of more than plenty

2. Flibbertygiblet: flibbertigibbet+giblet - organs of a nervous turkey

Now, to be completely true to the meaning of flibbertigibbet, it would be organs of a flighty turkey. But that's an oxymoron.
