Each day during Advent we'll post a new clue on our home page (here). The first letter of each answer is a different letter of the alphabet - in ascending order - and each of the clues lead to a Christmas-related answer.
And yes, we missed out 'Q'. There are only 25 days from December 1 to December 25, so something had to go! The clue for 'Q' might have been "Fourths, which when he heard them all heralded the Three Spirits for Scrooge? (8)". We'll reveal the solution on December 25th.
.... and here is that answer: Quarters. Scrooge heard all the quarters between 12 and 1 before the first Spirit arrived. A fourth is, of cousre, a quarter.
