Who doesn’t love an entertaining brainteaser when it’s super cold outside? If you’re anything like us, a unique puzzle or riddle can be especially fun during the holiday season, when we could use a little breather from the Christmas music and gift wrapping. That’s why a new Christmas-themed puzzle is the perfect little break from all the fa-la-la-la-la.
You might remember how Lenstore.co.uk, a UK-based contact lens store, kept us on our toes this Thanksgiving with a seasonally appropriate puzzle (you can still find the pumpkin pie among the Thanksgiving spread if you haven’t had a chance yet). As you may recall, the company has also asked us to find the mushroom among the jellyfish and locate the snake among the watermelons. Now, the store’s beloved “Can You Spot It?” challenge is taking us straight to the most wonderful time of the year — in the form of an adorable illustration.
The cute cartoon asks us whether we can find a Christmas stocking among all the other holiday-themed objects, such as Christmas trees, snowmen, and most frustratingly of all, Santa hats. Although this puzzle might seem like a cinch at first, you might be surprised by how tricky it really is. See if you can spot that one mysterious stocking hiding out in the cluster of Christmas symbols below.
It’s harder than it sounds, isn’t it? Don’t worry if it takes you longer than you expected to find the stocking — it’s hidden pretty well among such a bright, colorful, and eye-popping assortment of items. If you give up on finding the stocking, the good news is that the solution can be found below.
Wow! That’s the last place we would’ve expected to find a Christmas stocking, especially since we always put ours by the fireplace every year. Give yourself a good pat on the back if you were able to find it on the first try without peeking. We bet you feel pretty merry right about now!
