Geocache Description:

The final geocache is NOT located at the posted coordinates, but they may provide a parking opportunity near this gift from me to you. The actual coordinates for the hide location are determined based on the clues given below. Bring your own writing tool and be sure to follow rules for accessing the area. Permission for the hide granted by the City of Cedar Rapids.

I've often been accused by close family members of being slooooow to catch the holiday spirit. They've even associated me with the phrase Bah, Humbug!!! Well, in my defense, I simply don't want to peak too early. Starting holiday shopping in early July would have me peaking in July instead of late December. Hence, just to PROVE I am not a Scrooge in 2017, I present this hide to you as my holiday gift to the geocaching community in the form of a little fun (the puzzle shouldn't prove too difficult) and an easy smiley (pretty straightforward hide). Have a Happy Holiday, everybody!!!

As I was humming “Have a Jolly-Wally Christmas, It’s The Best Time Of The Year…” to myself recently, it occurred to me to have some fun with some other common Christmas Carols by representing them in the form of cartoons. Each cartoon alludes to a Christmas Carol (I will even tell you how many words and give you a list of candidate words which will provide you with pieces of information to discover the final coordinates. See if you can solve the puzzle before you can finish singing your own rendition of “Have a Jolly-Wally Christmas (to YOURSELF, please). Happy Holidays!

Final Cache Location = North 42 0A.BCD, West 091 3E.FGH
