The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: December Edition

As 2012 draws to a close, we're celebrating with a New Year's-themed crossword. Figure it out and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

In this month's puzzle, the answers in the shaded squares form a word ladder, in which each successive word is formed by altering a single letter (such as LOVE - COVE - CAVE - HAVE - HATE). The first and last words in the ladder will be appropriate for a New Year's celebration (especially one held at Times Square).

Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the eight links of the word ladder by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the eight links, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is January 18, 2013. Have fun and good luck!
