Answer:  MERRYMAKING

(Another unnecessary compound word!  But, it’s Christmas!  So, who really cares?  All of today’s clue words are old friends, and two of the jumbles are new.  We’ve seen “greem” and “rupen” before.  The answer letter layout did a bang-up job of hiding the answer.  Another great jumble.   The cartoon is a lot of fun.  It really looks like Will Farrell in the upper right, and I like the limbo-ing elves, led by Hermey.  Santa, Rudolph and the lecherous elf, and the mistletoe victim complete the picture.  Merry Christmas to all!  It’s a great day to make merry.  Or, if you’re married . . . to a gal named Mary . . .   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

May you receive the greatest gifts of all:  Peace and Love for the whole world.   —   Your Puzzle Friends

(I inadvertently cheated on this one.  I try not to look at the author name, but I noticed it also had an XNL in it.  I had already reasoned that the S was E, but realizing that the author was going to be YOUR PUZZLE FRIENDS made it go a lot faster.  I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and as naive as it may sound, I hope we all work for Peace on Earth!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
