Puzzle #18: “Freestyle 7”
Difficulty: Honestly, I don’t even know…
Happy Monday, solvers–
Hoping that your holiday festivities were jolly, and that more celebration lies ahead in your New Year’s plans! I need to figure out my own pretty soon, before I end up stranded in my room making crosswords while everyone else is partying and singing “Auld Lang Syne.”
Today’s puzzle is a little freestyle that I whipped up, with a few eye-popping entries (looking at you, 15-Across!) along with some nice in-the-language phrases. Tried to make the fill particularly smooth…if anything, I went a tad heavy on the proper nouns. But here’s to keeping these puzzles Natick-free, so I wish you all the best of luck!
