Last week's meta, "Short Time," asked you for a French city that I might have alternatively hidden in the grid. The words that were hidden in the grid were the names of seasons, missing a letter: SPRI(N)G, SUM(M)ER, (F)ALL, and (W)INTER. If I had called it AUTUMN instead of FALL, then I could have hidden Autun in the grid instead. (That would have given the theme a pleasing consistency of having all the hidden words be five letters, but there's the minor problem of there being no common words with AUTUN hidden in them.)
Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate! My present to you is a puzzle (pdf, puz, pdf solution). For those of you who don't celebrate, my present to you is the fact that the theme has nothing whatsoever do to with Christmas.
