Christmas Crossword Puzzle

Print out the puzzle and solve the clues to fill in the crossword.  There is an easier, "picture crossword", option and a more standard type of crossword available.

When I'm hosting Christmas, I like to have puzzles of various types printed and on hand to amuse the guests (in case my turkey decides to take a half hour longer than expected!)
