The First NoelLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
What would "Noel" be with no "L" sound? It would just be "no", or if you think of just the sound, it could be "know".
Several words are given below. Your challenge is to make new words by adding the sound of some letter to the sound of the given word. There may be several letters which could work, but only one is correct. Then take each of the added letters and rearrange them to form a word related to the first Noel (Christmas).
Example: Given "know + _", one possible answer is Noel (adding an "L" sound). The letter "L" would then be used as part of some word related to Christmas.
_ + night
_ + cape
not + _
_ + walk
_ + a
HintThe first missing letter is a "U".
U + night = unite
AnswerU + night = unite
S + cape = escape
not + E = naughty or knotty
J + walk = jaywalk
S + a = essay
The added letters, USEJS, are an anagram of JESUS. The first Christmas is when Jesus was born.
Here are some lyrics from "Mary's Boy Child" that mention Jesus:
"Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas day.
Hark, now hear the angels sing
A new King born today,
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day."
