Answer:  SAINTOCLAUS

(And, we’d put out beer and pretzels for Santa, instead of milk and cookies!  By the end of his ride he’d be totally sloshed!  So many kids would get the wrong – maybe even inappropriate – presents.  He’d be puking off your roof, or in your fireplace.  He’d be flying through restricted airspace.  Oh, it would be total chaos!  I guess it’s a good thing that Christmas is held in December, after all.

No new clue words today.  Three of the four jumbles were new though.  I could only verify that we’ve seen the one for “notch” before.  Excellent job on the answer letter layout.  It was a super jumble.  And, of course the cartoon, with Jeff and David, and Santa Patrick and the shamrocks, was lots of fun.  I hope everyone had a safe Saint Patrick‘s Day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
