    Hubbub

    "Festivals make your surrounding hubbub rather than desolate. If we didn't celebrate festivals, our society would become desolate. Festivals provide hubbubness to the society". Please check.

    Re: Hubbub

    Have you found "hubbubness" in a dictionary?

    I am not a teacher.

    And while you're looking up hubbubness you may notice that 'hubbub' is a noun, not an adjective.

    Tufguy, this is last time that I will correct your question construction. We have told you over and over again that we don't use "How to ..." for a question.

    As far as an example goes, "There was a hubbub coming from inside the hall".

    I don't think hubbub can surround anything. Also, hubbub tends to be temporary (like rush hour). Finally, aren't you sure you didn't mean something like boring? (Rather than hubbub.)

    Tarheel, are you suggesting "Festivals make your surroundings boring rather than desolate"?

    Yes, that's what I meant. They would, of course, be boring by comparison. (The word "desolate" seems a rather odd choice to me.)

    Re: Hubbub

    Both "boring" and "desolate" seem inappropriate to me. Not as inappropriate as "hubbub" though!

    Festivals make life more interesting/fun.

    I was thinking in terms of the surrounding area (surrounding the festival), which by comparison might be considered boring. (I have been missing out on all the hubbubness around here. (My spell-checker thinks "hubbubness" is not a word.))
