Connections Answer for December 7
Are you still stuck with the puzzle? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections are:
- STATE ABBREVIATIONS – HI, LA, MA, OK
- CABLE CHANNELS – Bet, E, Hallmark, USA
- IN THE NATO ALPHABET – Alfa, Brave, Romeo, Tango

I started off strong with NYT Connections solely because I watch way too many military movies. As such, I was able to identify the Blue category immediately and solve it first. Thankfully, I am starting to notice patterns with Connections, so I was able to identify the starting parts of all the U.S states and got the Yellow one, too.
The purple category was definitely very confusing. And to be fair with you, I did not think the words would repeat themselves. I instead connected all the stupid words I could find and that got me the category.
Finally, with only four words left I connected them all, got the Green category and the answers for NYT Connections for December 7.
