The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: December Edition

We say good-bye to 2010 by celebrating with a New Year's-themed crossword puzzle. Solve it and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

As in past months, this crossword relies on how the Visual Thesaurus links from one word to another to form a chain of synonyms. Use the Visual Thesaurus word maps to figure out how one step links to the next. You'll find that the first and last steps in the chain, when taken together, form a phrase related to New Year's Eve celebrations.

Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the ten links in the chain by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the ten links, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is January 21, 2011. Have fun and good luck!

If you'd like to print out the grid, please click here. Want to check out the solution for last month's puzzle? Click here for a PDF file or here for a JPG file.
