The First Noel 2Language 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.
bird + _
_ + bull
monk + _
_ + bow
din + _
HintThe first missing letter is an "N".
bird + N = burden
Answerbird + N = burden
A + bull = able
monk + E = monkey
L + bow = elbow
din + G = dingy
The added letters, NAELG, are an anagram of ANGEL. An angel announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds.
Here are some lyrics from "The First Noel" that mention an angel:
"The first Noel, the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!"
