Facts About Crossword Puzzles - Free for you to print!
Our Christmas Crossword Puzzles are all free for you to print! A crossword is a word puzzle that takes the form of a square or rectangular grid of white and shaded squares running vertically and horizontally. The white boxes are where the crossword answers should be recorded. The crossword squares in which answers begin are numbered. The numbers correspond to the clues provided. The shaded squares, usually black, are used to separate the answers. Clues are given to help you solve the puzzle and enter the correct answer. A number, in brackets, follows each clue and this indicates how many letters the answer should be.
