Connections Reply by November 19
Still can’t solve the puzzle after all the help above? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- GET STARTED – Birth, creation, dawn, beginning
- Venerable – Augustus, great, noble, regal
- WALK – March, step, step, tread
- _ _ _ DAY HOLIDAY – Earth, Groundhog, Labor, May
I am a big space enthusiast. And while the word Start has no connection with it, Birth and Creation do. That got me thinking about a connection between these, and I got the yellow category for connections resolved. The order would dictate that I would go for the green category next, but I am also a chronic walker, so I attached all the words to it. This led to the blue category being solved first.
It was then that my lack of interest in Latin got me thinking about the word Augustus and how it came to be. Remembering that it actually means respect, I looked at some related words. As sure as it was, I got Regal, Noble and Grand and got the Green. With only four words left, I connected them all, got the Purple category, and solved the NYT Connections puzzle for November 19th.
