Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all our readers

Big Dave and the team of bloggers would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A special thank you to all the crossword setters, especially to those who have taken the time to leave comments on the blog, and to Phil McNeill and his team at Telegraph Puzzles.

If you are one of several thousand lurkers that visit the site every day – why not break cover and say hello!

Although the Daily Telegraph is not published today, online subscribers (and non-subscribers this year!) have been treated to not two but three web-only cryptic puzzles, a standard puzzle, a Toughie by Dada and finally another of Elgar’s beastly Double Toughies.

  1. Merry Christmas to you too Dave and to all setters, tipsters, and fellow crossword solvers who visit your blog. Also to Phil and his team. I hope everyone enjoys the holidays and may 2014 proceed with ne’er a technical hitch.

  2. A very Happy Christmas to everyone, especially to BD and the setters. Here’s hoping to a speedy resolution to the web site problems and the resumption of normal service.

  3. A Merry Christmas to one and all, and a big thanks to BD for another year of wit and knowledge. It is now 10:30 on Christmas day in the Peloponnese. The weather is dull and overcast, and even worse Santa’s little helpers have once again forgotten to update the site.

  4. Happy Christmas to all.

    Can’t find the link to the extra puzzles?

    Got the cryptic on the Ipad, another gentle themed job.

  5. Merry Christmas to you BD and all your colleagues. Thanks to all of you for all your hard work. We get so much pleasure from this site.

  6. Merry Christmas to everyone! Put your feet up BD, you deserve it… hope you and Mrs BD have a relaxing day!

  7. I’m not a great blogger, but now’s the time to say a big “thank you” to BD and the team for the great pleasure your dedicated work gives me, and thousands of others, throughout the year. Happy Christmas BD to you and yours and all the best for 2014!!

  8. Apart from work-related web work, this is the only site I come to every day. I wish absolutely everyone, including Elgar, who sends shivers down my spine when I see his name above a puzzle, the very highest compliments of the season. I’ve never read a more selfless blog. Please keep up the first-rate work in 2014

  9. Season’s Greetings, and much appreciation to all who make this splendid blog the wonderful site that it is.

  10. Merry Christmas to BD, the setters and all on the blog too. I’ve only been lurking since February but you’ve made learning how to do cryptic crosswords immense fun!!

  11. Yuletide Felicitations,
    to B. D. and the setters & fellow bloggers.
    Guess what ? The puzzle site is down again!
    All the best,

    D. D.

  12. Best wishes for 2014 to Dave & all his bloggers.
    Don’t seem to get hints any more for Sunday Telegraph. Stuck on four and was hoping…..
