Enjoy some easy, relaxing puzzles over some eggnog or by a toasty fire. All of these cryptograms and word jumbles feature three of our favorite holiday films. If you have never seen it before, I particularly recommend the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol starring the amazing Alistair Sim. The cryptograms are not quotes from the movies, rather they will reveal a fun, fascinating fact about each of the movies’ production or history. If you are stumped, Santa has left you clues on the classified page of our print edition. PDF is attached for printouts.
