New Word Wednesday #4

I know it's Saturday - with everything happening over in Egypt I forgot. This word is in honor of my everything German loving daughter.

–noun, German for “time-spirit”
–general moral, intellectual, and cultural climate of an era
–example: the Zeitgeist of England in the Victorian period included a belief in industrial progress, and the Zeitgeist of the 1980s in the United States was a belief in the power of money and the many ways in which to spend it
