Date When Celebrated : Always December 21

Crossword Puzzle Day is today. it is very puzzling to me, why this special day would be so close to Christmas. While we love crosswords, who has time to do them right now!?

Well, it just so happens that crossword puzzles were created and published on this day in1913. It was published in the New York World newspaper. Arthur Wynne is credited with creating the modern crossword puzzle. These puzzles became so popular, that competitions were held, to see who was the fastest to complete them correctly.

We sure hope you find some time this busy holiday season, to complete a crossword puzzle today and every day.

Did You Know? Doing crossword puzzles daily is good for memory and mind health.

Thought for Today: The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all, is the person who argues with him.

History and Origin of Crossword Puzzle Day:

Our research found out a lot of information about crossword puzzles and their history. We did not uncover the creator of this special day, or when it was first celebrated. This is very puzzling.
