Sorry, I missed Halloween by 1 month

My prefix is christmas-with-e,
My suffix you do every day.
My infix is latin-infinitive-ending,
My whole with magic is Ha-llo-ween

Somehow this is not rhyming :P

The word is

'TREAT'


My prefix is christmas-with-e,

'Tre' + e = Tree as in christmas tree

My suffix you do every day.

We 'eat' every day

My infix is latin-infinitive,

're' is a latin infinitive

My whole with magic is Ha-llo-ween

'Trick or Treat' is to do with Halloween

  • $\begingroup$ So fast? Yes your right. Just the latin infinitive I meant "re" ending, for verbs. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @math yeah I was a bit unsure about which part you were referring too, as none of the infiixes seem to be perfect matches. 're' itself isnt even an infinitive, but 'are', 'ire' etc are. I would probably have tried to think of a better clue for that one $\endgroup$ Dec 17, 2020 at 10:45
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, sorry. Shall I add a clue for further readers? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @math no don't worry about it now, but for instacne searching 're' latin infinitive doesn't actually come up with a proper result, so that would be a good indicator it might be a bit vague $\endgroup$ Dec 17, 2020 at 10:46

    $\begingroup$ 're', along with 'er' and 'ir' is a proper french infinitive though :) $\endgroup$
