I loved this teaser. Thank you.

For the third one I had 'night out' which seems to match all the criteria.

Another fun word teaser from jazzmusician! Thanks. This was just right on the difficulty scale for me.

I think I tried to make this one harder than it needed to be. lol For some reason I drew a blank about what "night person" meant, so I came up with a whole big long list of words you can make out of "persimmon." Finally I looked back at my list and thought, "night person"! That's it! This is especially funny because I actually am a night person.

Not too fond of this one. I was not too sure what I was supposed to do until I looked at the answers.

I LOVE puzzles like this one- but I had so much trouble with it!

I guess I should be more awake!

Lol, I thought the "Nightcourt" one was
"Nightcat." Would that still be considered correct?
