Happy Holidays! It’s that time of the year where everything is decorated with a wide assortment of colorful lights. My myriad of Christmas celebrations have begun, and over the course of the next couple of weeks, I hope to safely see all my friends and family. I do have a present for everyone later this week, my 100th puzzle will be releasing TOMORROW! It’s my first 21x21 crossword that I’ve ever made. I hope you all look forward to it.
Today’s Teeny Tuesday crossword is an 8x8 grid with standard symmetry. I tried to make a good chunk of the clues a bit festive since ‘tis the season to be jolly. This is my second holiday-esque crossword. Looking back at my first holiday crossword last year, I’m impressed to see how much my clue writing has improved since then. I hope to continuously improve as the months and years progress.
