Holiday Word Search

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Holiday Word Search

Do you enjoy word games? This terrific freebie automatically creates holiday-themed word searches to print out and share with friends and family.

The program creates puzzles for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, and the four seasons. You can edit the automatically generated lists as you wish.

The interface is a bit confusing. The programs opens to a Kwanzaa-based word search; to change themes, you need to click Stop, then New List. To generate a new puzzle within the same theme, click Stop, then New Puzzle. To close the program, click Stop, then Exit.

Don't let a less-than-optimal interface keep you from trying Holiday Word Search. This free program creates puzzles that are perfect for sharing with family and friends over the holidays.

Note: PC World Contributing Editor Steve Bass enjoys Holiday Word Search too. Here's what he has to say about it:

"Every year I put together a word puzzle for our holiday dinner. I figure if I have to have a bunch of relatives over, they need to work for it (or at least spend some time kvetching when I hand them the puzzle). One of the tools I use is Holiday Word Search. It's a freebie that gives me a way to print word search puzzles with built-in holiday word lists."
