Popular crossword puzzle answer. Now vial for perfume bottle was a new one to me. But maybe that's because I don't wear perfume.

None were new to me (and english isnt even my language) but I thought of like 25 different ways to mean prohibit, but only got ban after getting the country... (Not that christmastime came easy.. those were the last I got, that one, then the country then the prohibit.)

Perhaps specify that you're looking for the French word for Christmas? Leaving it open like that makes it seem like you're asking for another English term for it. Xmas, holiday, etc.

I see and hear Noel used often during the holidays in the US . "The first Noel, the angels did say..." Unlike the word in French, I never see it with the diaeresis over the e.

Violinist's stick? Really? I got what you meant, but 'used to play a violin' would have been better.
