Okay, back up, back up. You mean to tell me that we re-started up the hint ‘ums series only to have skipped puzzles 15-22 on the blog?! Wowie, that needs fixed. Beginning with Hint ‘ums Volume 15, I’ll be rewinding and guiding you through hints to these older puzzles that are new to the blog!
This puzzle is all about Writing a Formal Letter! So, get out your stationary, a pen, some holiday stamps. And let’s begin writing those letters to grandma (and Santa)!
Number 1. “Where is it that you put the writer’s address (your address)?”
The ___ ____ corner.
2. “You have to place one or more of these in the top right corner in order to send it in the mail.”
You know this one 😉
3. “The residence of whom the letter is to.”
The mailman can’t get your letter to someone without you putting their __________ on the letter. 😉
This is a _________. Hola, bonjour, halo! It is kind to acknowledge guests.
5. “With love,…” *signs the letter*
What’s it called when you sign your name?
6. “The message of the letter is called the _____ paragraphs.”
In English class in highschool, these were what the middle paragraphs were called.
7. “‘P.S.’ stands for _____.”
Directly translate this abbreviation.
8. “The one whom the letter is being sent to.” …Is called the__________. Think receiver.
9. “The one who writes the letter and puts it out for delivery.”
If you are the one who puts the letter out to deliver, you are the opposite of the receiver. Not giver; the other one. Bingo 🙂
10. “The alternate name for a greeting.”
‘I salute you!’
11. “The ____ of the letter indicates when it was sent and/or written.”
I’ll recite what they said in school: ‘Please put your name in the top left and don’t forget to put the _____ on the right.’
12. “Final thoughts.”
This part of the letter is the conclusion. What is another word for conclusion?
And that’s it! You made it through the journey of writing a letter! How about another one for grandpa? Or mom and dad, for those of you who don’t live at home ❤
Whoever you write to, I wish you a joyful season and a happy New Year. Merry Christmas! ….Oh, we’re not there yet.
