A couple of months back I posted about the fact that there was no official word for serendipity in Spanish. Today, though, I spotted today the following blurb in the style blog of one of Spain’s leading dailies, the ABC. Perhaps ‘serendipity’ is finally on the rise.

The blurb reads: On the 28 January 1754, Horace Walpole coined the word ‘serendipity’ in a letter that he wrote to Thomas Mann.
