A Christmas Puzzle

by John Blanchard

Ed: Long-standing member John Blanchard did his first LEJOG in 1953, when he was 20 (and as John pointed out, thirty years before the Association was founded). 


This puzzle is similar to those of Geoff De'Ath. In this case the 18 words in column one need to be correctly paired with a word from column two. This will leave an unused word remaining in column two. I realise that members in the southern hemisphere suffer a slight disadvantage because of the nature of the seasons (and I have to add that one pair of words relates to an all-year-round food) but otherwise the pairs all form expressions connected with Christmas/Winter/December.
