Across answers are entered with the central letter misprinted, which is what is indicated in the wordplay.  Correct letters, in clue order, spell out the word that is to be clued (see larger puzzle); the misprints, with the letters already inserted, spell out the seasonal Kiwi icon at 1 down.  Down clues are normal.
