Crossword Puzzle Day (Just for you Erika!)
Crossword Puzzle Day is today. it is very puzzling to me, why this special day would be so close to Christmas. While we love crosswords, who has time to do them right now!?
Well, it just so happens that crossword puzzles were created and published on this day in 1913. It was published in the New York World newspaper. Arthur Wynne is credited with creating the modern crossword puzzle. These puzzles became so popular, that competitions were held, to see who was the fastest to complete them correctly.
We sure hope you find some time this busy holiday season, to complete a crossword puzzle today.
