SQP110 – Cryptic #5782

**Hello! You’ve found one of my cryptics from before I figured out how to make cryptics well! Please enjoy the diamonds in the rough, but expect neither elegance nor fairness. It takes a while to learn how to do it right!**

Happy New Year, cryptic fans!

Thanks for stopping by one day early this week. I’ve got a holiday challenger for you in the cryptic spot for September. There’s a wide range of difficulty in the clues to this puzzle, but if the toughest ones leave you scratching your head, I’ve got a gentler quiptic coming in two days, as well as this fun cryptic 7xwords puzzle that dropped over the weekend. Thanks again to Malaika for having me as part of such a cool puzzle project!

Thanks so much to David Gold and k0rmad for test solving!

Take care, enjoy, and see you on Thursday with that quiptic!
