Connections Answer for December 22
Are you still stuck with the puzzle? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections are:
- CLASSIC HALLOWEEN COSTUMES – Angel, Clown, Pirate, Witch
- BEE CREATIONS – Comb, Hive, Honey, Wax
- INTERVAL OF TIME – Period, Spell, Stretch, While
- ANIMAL HOMOPHONES – Dear, Hair, Hoarse, Wail
I began my NYT Connections for December 22 by solving the Yellow category. It was quite easy as the words in it stood out like a sore thumb. I moved onto the Green section by connecting Comb and Hive together. Honey and Wax came soon after and were easy to connect together to finish it.
I was quite confused about the Blue category as Spell and Period made sense, but While just didn’t. I tried it anyway, along with another one, and got it.
Finally, I had these four weird words left, got them all together, and got the Purple category and NYT Connections for December 22.
