See if you can solve 'em all!

Who doesn’t love a good visual puzzle? For years we’ve been publishing Spot the Difference puzzles in our print magazine. To play, you simply study the photo on the left, then compare it to the same photo — minus a few sneaky differences we’ve manipulated into it — on the right. Once you think you’ve spotted all 6 differences between the two photos, you can scroll down to the bottom of this post to see how well you did. Our fun twist on this classic game? Our photos contain celebrities you know and love.

Now, we’re bringing the game online! We’ve collected some of our best holiday Spot the Difference puzzles from Christmases past for you to solve, starting with Hoda and Kathie Lee Gifford (above)!

For more entertaining content, including memes, (like our exercise memes, just in time for New Year’s resolutions!), jokes, fun and games, consider subscribing to our print magazine, where we feature a Spot the Difference puzzle in every issue!
