7-letter word for “enigmas” (begins with “P”)
No, not “Presley” (although it’s still a mystery to me why Elvis lead such a puzzling life). But rather, the correct answer is “Puzzles.” And yes, that magically brings us to the point that this Friday is (ta-dah!) National Puzzle Day. Woo-hoo, get out your #2 pencil and get ready!
This also brings up an enigma of sorts: why would anyone in their right mind would go to all of the trouble of passing an Act of Congress to create National Puzzle Day? Then again, maybe it’s not a real holiday like Christmas, the 4th of July or the day Elvis Presley died… hmm. The origins of this holiday are a puzzle wrapped in an enigma shrouded in mystery…
But back to the point at hand: puzzles have always been wildly popular with folks. That naturally means there are tons of puzzle-themed designs being created by the CafePress design community (no strangers to fun hobbies). From crossword puzzles and Sudoku to mazes and math riddles, be sure to check them out. And hey – have a Happy National Puzzle Day.
