Merry Christmas! Answers on New Year's!

This was an interesting exercise for me, too. Besides finding good words to use, I originally had eight words, but then realized I only needed seven of them.

After that, I realized that I could have used even fewer if I employed ratios into the mix because the puzzle doesn't actually require you to find all the individual letters.

For example, if you knew the product of CL or CLU without knowing what, say, C was, you would be fine. But I didn't want to use the word CULT in a Christmas puzzle.

If anyone wants to submit a list of fewer than 7 words which can be used to solve this puzzle, I'd like to see it.

Merry Christmas!
