Flower delivery company Bloom & Wild have created a holiday brainteaser in the run-up to Christmas, and it’s so mind-boggling it’s sure to leave even Santa and his magical elves stumped. The brainteaser challenges readers to spot the robin amongst the snow-capped Christmas pine trees. Will you challenge your readers?
The robin holds a special place in the hearts of Brits during the festive period. As a much-loved symbol of Christmas, the robin has meant going back to the beginnings of Christianity, but since the 19th century, the red-breasted robin has been a symbol of the red-suited Victorian postmen that delivered much loved Christmas cards during the season – giving them the nickname Robins. Since then robins have been depicted on Christmas cards and decorations as a symbol of the festive season in Britain.
As such, it’s only fitting that Bloom & Wild have created a brainteaser that brings together our most loved and respected Christmas traditions – the Christmas tree and the Christmas Robin.
The brainteaser has already managed to stump several Bloom & Wild employees looking to spot the elusive robin amid the bedecked Christmas pines. It took them an average of 2 minutes and 26 seconds to find the red-breasted bird – the same amount of time it would take you to listen to ‘Santa Claus Is Coming To Town’ by The Jackson 5! Why not see how long it takes your readers?
Just in case you need a hint, here is what you should be looking for:
Whether or not you can spot the robin among the Christmas trees, Bloom & Wild’s brainteaser is a fun addition to the season’s festive traditions that your readers are sure to enjoy.
Jim Warren from Bloom & Wild says, ‘‘Our aim was to contribute a sense of fun that represented the much loved festive traditions of the season. The depiction of the Christmas robin is synonymous with the spirit of giving that is so prevalent during this period – we only hope we haven’t made it too difficult to find!’
