PuzzleWatch: A Scrambled Christmas

Get in the holiday spirit with a festive crossword puzzle for the whole family.


Dear puzzle lover,

We’ve got a serious Christmas kerfuffle on our hands here at PuzzleWatch. This month’s puzzle was composed as a tribute to one of the world’s favorite Christmas poems. You should have been able to read it from head to toe. But the night before posting, a little mouse, perturbed at being left out of “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” got into the computer and nibbled and gnawed and scrambled the words—all except for the last line. Bah, humbug!

So we offer it to you here in scrambled form in hopes that you’ll be able to enjoy it anyway. The puzzle is appropriate for the whole family, so share it with young and old. And once you’ve finished, you can read the poem in its original, unscrambled form. Now, off to find that pesky little mouse who dashed away.
