merry christmas 🙂

4. StewE17 says:

About 1 min. This was the easiest one I’ve come across since I’ve been doing the Friday puzzle.

5. Dawn Orman says:

My wife got it in about a minute. And it’s her birthday! x I Still haven’t a clue.

6. Anonymous says:

easy because all the days were at the beginning of the month

7. Oh..to solve this I have to go find a Calendar …*wink wink 😉

8. MaciejK says:

I surprised myself at how fast I got it. I must be getting smarter or something.

9. mittfh says:

Unlike previous respondents, I’m still struggling. It’s not related to the day of the year, it’s not day of the week (Friday, Friday, Sunday, Thursday, Friday, Thursday, Sunday), I doubt it’s the sum of the letters in spelling out the date or even the number of letters in spelling out the date…

10. Kate says:

Got it in 30 seconds – just saw it which was lovely….they are not usually that obvious to me until I see the answer…

11. M says:

My, that took long…

Got it. Weird.

12. Anonymosity says:

Wow. It seemed hard when I read the list, but the first thing I tried worked (for once).

30 seconds.

13. John Loony says:

I’ve got it! About a minute. I was writing it down getting ready to work out days of the week, or do anagrams, or whatever, but then I realised what it is.

This time I have the satisfaction of knowing that it is definitely the right answer, without having to worry about hidden subtleties or double meanings or whatever.

I alos have the satisfaction of knowing I didn’t cheat by googling, like last week.

14. Camel Ali says:

Not sure why that took me so long to do. When you see it, you will know…

15. Lazy T says:

Those were the days I was late for work! How did you know?
Condiments of the seasoning.

• Lazy T says:

Got it on the way home, neat!

16. Costas Vlachos says:

Tricky one! Struggled a bit, but got it eventually… Once you get it you will know it’s the right and only solution!

17. Julie says:

This has made my day. I’ve solved the puzzle without cheating or getting hints from clever friends

18. Chris says:

It’s annoying when you don’t see it and everyone is saying how easy it is. But once you do (about two minutes in my case ‘cos I’m a bit thick), it is indeed obvious. Duh!!

19. Pedanto says:

around 30 seconds

20. Mort Canard says:

Longer than I care to admit.

• Mort Canard says:

Post Script; This is not the answer to the original puzzle but something for those who have solved it. ;~)

• Maarten says:

Cool

• Nice. I was finally able to figure it out because of this. Very nice. I shant respond though lest I give the game away.

21. Jo says:

I’ve no idea. I wish more people who had no idea would post, because every week this section if full of smug replies saying “I got this in 30 seconds” etc, some of which I doubt are true.

• Jeremy says:

I have no idea.

• Jeremy says:

Haha! The moment I posted that I saw the answer! Sorry!

• You Tube Wannabe says:

I had no idea either and it took me quite a long time to get there too
Having now seen the answer it is not what I would call a series – certainly not a unique one
The one consolation is that it has not involved Richard displaying his poor understanding of probabity yet again
I’ll just get back to eating those sour grapes I was given for Christmas……….

22. jelhel says:

Got it in a couple of seconds but it was more of a semi-educated guess than anything else. Happy Christnmas everyone!!

23. Dannie says:

Mort Canard – to you too! (May 4th was clever!)

24. Oh, took me long… Like 4 or 5 minutes. And I guess reading the comments must have helped in some way. Especially Mort Canard’s puzzle, which convinced me I had the right answer (I wouldn’t have been so sure otherwise).
