Christmas Puzzle for 2018

Our annual Christmas puzzle is available now. Follow the simple directions, eliminate those words and see what's left...

As in prior years, the reward for solving is a video Christmas card, but you'll need to figure out the password by solving the puzzle.

Feel free to add a comment below to let us know that you successfully figured it out (without giving away the answer to others). We are always looking for new ideas for next year's Christmas puzzle, so submit those too.

If you need help with the puzzle or if you missed the reference in our Christmas family photo, here is the answer to the puzzle. But try to solve it yourself before looking there.

    Elephant’s Foot Umbrella Stand may be one of them:

    'Elephant’s Foot Umbrella Stand'
    This is a logic game that is best played when only one person actually knows the 'logic' or 'solution' to it. A group of players sit around, possibly in a circle, and Person A (the one who knows the logic behind the game) starts by saying, 'I went to the shop, and I bought an elephant’s foot umbrella stand.' The next person, Person B, says 'I went to the shop, and I bought an elephant’s foot umbrella stand and (Insert whatever Person B makes up). Person A will then accept or not accept Person B’s object based on the logic to the game. If Person B’s object was accepted, the next person, Person C, says 'I went to the shop, and I bought an elephant’s foot umbrella stand, (what Person B said), and (Insert what Person C makes up.) As the game continues, the players not only have to remember the objects in order as the list grows longer and longer, but they have to try and figure out the 'logic' of the game. And here’s the SOLUTION: Every new object has to start with the next letter in the phrase 'Elephant’s Foot Umbrella Stand.' If Person B said 'Large Orange Plate' that would be accepted because the second letter is L. If Person C said a 'Lost teacup poodle' that would not be accepted because it didn’t start with E (the phrase’s third letter). And so on and so on. You play until someone figures the logic out!
