Thanksgiving is just around the corner, Christmas is still about a month out, yet there is still plenty of us that still like to start Christmas celebrating and decorating a little bit early. The sooner we start ringing in the holidays, the sooner we can enjoy all the accessories that come along with Christmas. This is especially true for everyone who likes to drink eggnog and jam out to their favorite Christmas music non-stop until the holiday has passed.
With that being said, we have decided to give you all a little Christmas gift early. We have a Christmas riddle just for you. This gift that we are presenting you with has been stumping readers all over. This seems like a simple riddle because it looks like so much fun, but this riddle is proving to be trickier than most people have thought.
This riddle has been shared hundreds of times already and the readers are still in search of the correct answer. The solution is not as easy as it may appear. Originally, the riddle had so many likes and shares that it was creating a huge buzz. While you go ahead and try to solve the riddle, the rest of us will sit here and sip our eggnog, eat gingerbread, and listen to twenty different versions of jingle bells.

Dashing through the snow with the answers to your riddle. Over the riddle, we come, laughing all the way. Have you solved it yet? Chances are the determination if you are on the naughty or nice list is not going to come from the answer to this riddle, but it is still fun. Don’t forget to leave the milk and cookies out this year either.
Here it is:
The snowflakes are worth 10. This means 10 + 10 + 10 = 30.
The candy canes are worth 5. This means 10 + 5 + 5 = 20.
The wine glasses are worth 1. This means 5 + (1+1) + (1+1) = 9.
Therefore the final riddle is 5 + 1 x 10
The correct answer is….15. There are numerous people who came up with the answer of 25. However, that is incorrect. The wine is key to being able to solve this riddle correctly. If you examine line three again, you will see why so many people were quick to get the answer of 25. Line number three has double wine glasses, making it appear as if they count as two, however, the fourth line only contains one wine glass. Therefore it counts as a half count of the third line.
The snowflakes, as previously said, count as 10 each. This puts us at a 30. If all the candy canes are worth 5 and each wine glass has an individual worth of 1, then that puts us at a 15 for the solution. It’s important that the multiplication is done first. We have tried to do our best to show you the correct way to get the correct answer. You should continue to pass this puzzle along and stump your friends. Keep the debate going around until the holidays are over. Share it and see how many of your friends and family you can stump.
