Game Celebrate Crossword Puzzle Day – Okinawa Edition!

Looking for something fun to do this morning before possibly going out to enjoy a wonderful Saturday afternoon in Okinawa? So are millions of other people around the world.

Today is the 21st of December, which might not mean much to most, except it finally being one day closer to getting able to frantically rip those Christmas gifts that have been sitting under the tree since Black Friday open.

However, December 21st marks the birth of the crossword puzzle. The invention of the crossword puzzle is credited to journalist Arthur Wynne with the first known published crossword puzzle appearing in the December 21, 1913 edition of the New York World newspaper.

However, today, you get to enjoy a crossword from Okinawa.Org!

We've worked on a crossword puzzle with 30 different words relating to Okinawa which are either already well-known or have been mentioned or written about on our site multiple times throughout the past year—it should be fairly easy to complete for most.

You may use the below picture below or download and print the attached PDF and write in your answers in order to celebrate Crossword Puzzle Day – Okinawa Edition.

I wonder if there's anybody that completed it! :oops:
Not that we're aware of, on this forum, or in any Facebook group posted to.

We're contemplating posting them either tomorrow or soon after... but with the holidays, we might give it some time to see if anyone can come up with the correct answers and post here before we do. :)

(Without cheating [i.e. Google] 😇)
