Connections Answer for December 15
Are you still stuck with the puzzle? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections are:
- CURMUDGEON – Crab, Crank, Grouch, Grump
- GET LOW – Crouch, Duck, Squat, Stoop
- NATIONAL SYMBOLS – Anthem, Flag, Motto, Seal
- SWINDLER – Cheat, Crook, Quack, Shark
I have listened to Apple Bottom Jeans enough times to make the connection the Green category required. Once that was done, I moved onto the Blue category and nailed down all the patriot symbols I could find. However, I’ll admit I was stuck for a minute or two and had to ask a co-worker for help.
I then actually solved the Purple category the first and, after a solid few minutes, had all the words in the bag. The only word I was struggling with was Shark, but I managed to get it, too.
With only four words left, I moved them all together and got the Yellow category and NYT Connections for December 15.
