Neologisms: "festility" and "hostivity"

I present two new words:
fes·til'·i·ty, n.
n. pl. fes·til'·i·ties; adj. fes'·tile

  1. Antagonism or anti-social behavior as a result of overindulgence at an otherwise pleasant event; "Bob had too much to drink at the company party and expressed his festility."

hos·tiv'·i·ty, n.
n. pl. hos·tiv'·i·ties; adj. hos'·tive

  1. Pleasure derived from observing or participating in an altercation; "Ed could not conceal his hostivity as he watched the two girls fighting."
