Looking for something different for the BBC Music Magazine Christmas issue, I found myself doodling a Christmas tree shaped grid. I decided it wouldn’t really do (quite difficult to fill with thematic entries) but I kept it around and filled it with some seasonal words. With only fourteen entries, it didn’t take long to clue, and I noted the curious fact that, if you clued them in order, you started out with short words like 2 across, which grew longer then shorter again when you reached 10 down. You don’t get that with your usual grids.
Anyway, here it is. Merry Christmas!
Back next week with some thoughts on superstitions.
