The night of changing the kitchen back from Pesach to chametz. Is it called rumplevoch if it takes longer than one night?

Literally it means something like "night of the chaotic mess".

Rumpel means mess and nacht means night. Or just an everyday occurrence in my house.

Love this name. Although, ironically, my kitchen looks so tidy with empty counters. (not so much the rest of the house)

I believe the rump part is pronounced like frum or vroom, which may change your associations. Smile

It's a shame that searching for the etymology of a word on the internet is decades away from working and people have to still guess where words come from based on what else they slightly sound like.

I didn't mean that people should guess where the word came from based on similar sounding words. I meant that it doesn't sound similar to rumspring and rumplestilskin.
