The solutions of each of these 48 brainteasers has something to do with the Festive period, whether it’s a Christmas carol or a song; food or drink enjoyed especially at Christmas; a seasonal film; or a festive phrase. They are all cunningly hidden in this challenge to intrigue and delight you.

The dingbats cost £1 each, every penny of which goes to Pendleside Hospice our much love haven for local people with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses in the Burnley and Pendle area.
