The Grinch That Stole DA’s Chrissie Crossie

No DA for Christmas this year. And there was no LR on Monday.

All in all, a terrible week for cunning cruciverbalists, but hey, it’s Christmas. What’s to complain about, really?

Oh, and SMH peeps: I’m informed there will be a giant-sized cryptic-rich holiday crossword coming your way on the weekend as compensation for the lack of Friday fun.
