Crossword Puzzle - December 2015

Here's the last Crossword Puzzle for 2015. And I'm not sure there'll be another one. They just seem to have run their course, and I haven't had anyone actually entering for quite a while.

In case you don't know how this works, you print out this crossword puzzle and solve it (or solve it using an image annotation program, or whatever). When you're done, you e-mail me your answers. I'll post the solution to this puzzle in a month's time, and I'll also list the names of everyone who game me the correct answers before then.

Do you enjoy these puzzles, and want to see them continue? If so, please send me an e-mail, or leave a comment below, and let me know. I'll gladly keep them coming, if I know that people are interested!
