The Lights of the Carousel

The Lights of the Carousel

There’s a terrific entry for carousel in the Online Etymology Dictionary.

A playful tournament of knights in chariots or on horseback, from French carrousel ‘a tilting match,’ from Italian carusiello, possibly from carro “chariot,” from Latin carrus.

Now in my mind’s eye I will see a chariot when I see a carousel.
