The word originated in Britain in the early part of the nineteenth century. Until recently, it was believed that the first written evidence was in Charles Dickens’s Sketches by Boz of 1836, where he spelled it phonetically as kye-bosk (Douglas Wilson of the American Dialect Society has recently discovered that the same piece appearewww.worldwidewords.org... in the magazine Bell’s Life in London the year before).

Most people here would probably be surprised to see the English literal translation of the holiday. It is usually just thought of that weird day off in the middle of November.

@TDK: it once a hilltop fortress (anglicized as burg) named after a certain William, but Breuckelen works as well, which is part of the small time ville of New Amsterdam.
