Answer:  OLD TIMES SAKE

(2021 surely won’t erase the stain of 2020, folks.  At least not any time soon.  But, there’s always hope for the new year, just as there is hope every single morning.  Just the act of opening our eyes, and realizing we’re alive, and it’s a brand new day should bring joy to our hearts.  Life is fragile and short, and nothing is guaranteed.  So, never pass up the opportunity to tell your friends and loved ones that you love and appreciate them.  I appreciate all of you loyal readers, and I wish you all a Happy New Year.

We might have a brand new clue word today, in “unmask”.  Unless we’ve seen it on some Sunday of course.  It’s not on my latest version of the ralis95 clue word database at least.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “pmyet” before.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  But, I doubt that many struggled to come up with the final answer.

    …but in a very different context (clocks rather than Times Square), so no harm, no foul in that repeat.

    Thanks and a very Happy New Year to Unc and to all his readers and commenters!
