Holiday Anagrams 

 

 

 

 


This quiz consists entirely of anagrams, hidden crossword-style, and each of the answers, which is referred to in the question, is associated with a traditional English holiday – so don’t expect fermenting GRAIN AS [sangria] an answer, or boiling up GIANT STEWS IN [wine tastings] your solutions!  The questions are listed in the alphabetical order of the solutions, and, as ever, the illustrations relate to the questions, not to the answers.

 

I’ll publish answers in a couple of weeks time.  Have fun.
