Holiday Riddle Fun!

I’ve been listening to a podcast based around riddles and they had a segment in their last episode which featured a specific type of riddle and thought it would be fun to share some with you.

Here’s how it works. The riddle is based on counting and it uses only the first letter of the word instead of the whole word.

For example, if the question is “26 L in the A”, the answer is “26 Letters in the Alphabet”

Here are some holiday-themed puzzles. How many can you figure out?


When you think you have the answer figured out, click the riddle to open up the solution below and find out if you were right!
