Top Definition
A neologism built analogously to Anglophile, Francophile, and bibliophile, an Americanaphile is a person who admires the American culture including its language, music, movies, books, art, technological innovations, fashion, sports, food, space program, cutting edge medicine, Ivy League universities, natural wonders, tourist attractions such as Disneyland, and the lifestyle; an Americana enthusiast or aficionado.
Although Halloween is no longer celebrated in some neighborhoods due to fears of candy tampering, some Americanaphile teachers in foreign countries still enthusiastically promote and teach about the holiday in their classrooms.

I met a lot of friendly Americanaphiles during my study year abroad. They love the Simpsons, Friends, Seinfeld, That 70's Show, House (the medical show), ER by Michael Crichton, The Muppets and Sesame Street, Snoopy, Calvin and Hobbs, Disney films, Startreck, Star Wars, Terminator film series, Will Smith, and Tom Hanks, Jennifer Aniston, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Madonna, Elvis, Sinatra, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, The Doors, Van Halen, Guns’N'Roses, The Eagles, Michael Jordan, Lance Armstrong, Rocky Balboa, Muhammad Ali, Indy 500, The Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountains, beautiful beaches, Starbucks, McDonald's, etc.
