A word that says it all

Hot chocolate is a preferred drink at the Holidazzle, an evening, 30-minute parade with a dozen floats and hundreds of characters all decked in glittering lights on downtown Minneapolis' main shopping street, Nicollet Mall.
Think Minnesotans exaggerate their Nordic prowess? The parade, in its 15th season, is only canceled for blizzards or at least minus 20 wind chill, that deadly combination of actual temperature and the speed of winds blowing in from the Canadian and Dakota plains. And of course, weather varies from year to year; the mean temperature on Christmas Day for the past five years has ranged from 34 to minus 4.

For better or for worse depending in your view of Christmas, and the beliefs you espouse Holidazzle is either a brilliant or lamentable word.

The Observer finds it Extremly Lamentable... yet seemingly inevitable

Is it a noun or a verb? What do you think?
