Crossword Puzzle Day on December 21 commemorates the birth of the challenging word game enjoyed by millions around the world. The very first crossword puzzles were published in England in children’s books and other publications. Many tout the benefits of crossword puzzles. Not only are they fun, but challenging crossword puzzles may help delay the effects of dementia or sharpen the brain for problem-solving. They can also increase vocabulary and even relieve the mind from the stress of the day by focusing on something other than worldly problems.
