 :D Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone. Have a safe and prosperous 2011. Advice: Beware of wizards bearing devious, demented and deleterious clues except in the advent of promised precious prizes. That's all I'm saying. Cheers!

I got all but the last word, and although I figure I knew the last word, my leftover letters were quite a bit out, so I must have made some mistakes along the way.

Good luck all.. hope you've all had a great christmas

Yeah I got most of the letters, but unexpectadly I was needed to do allsorts of things on the evening of the 23rd and Xmas Eve itself, so I never got the time to figure out the slogan in time to send it.

Ah well 'ce la vie' there is always next year, most of the fun is trying to get our heads round Wizzo's offbeat question choices, I think I got one or two of the oddball ones this year - that's progress. ;)

Odd ball questions... John I had a hard time with the easy ones.... and even when he just put a letter up.... I questioned whether there was a trick to it... LOL.... I love advent comps....

The first one was still by far my favourite... almost everyone went insane just looking for letters....

I was out of my mind - had no clue where to even LOOK for the letters.  I think Wizzo was just looking to get his click count up on the site before the year ended.  I must have looked at hundreds of posts & pics looking for letters.  ;) ;)
