Mule = some other animal mix, like a burro?

Jubilee as used by American slaves to refer to the day of Emancipation?

Mazed = a verb? For example, while it could refer to labyrinth or labyrinthine, those aren't verbs.

Hot-shot - a pilot? Han Solo?

Spoiled - rotten? Refers to food?

Compound - of two things? More? Is it edible? Chemistry relevant? Accelerators or catalysts?

lost? what do you mean by this question?

I meant whether "lost" was the synonym of "mazed" your were looking for. Seeing that you were confused by the question, I'm guessing the answer is no.

I meant whether "lost" was the synonym of "mazed" your were looking for. Seeing that you were confused by the question, I'm guessing the answer is no. acually lost is the exact word i was looking for, like i said i'm not an english kind of person.....<:>

***corection***

5. ruined? no i'm look for a simpler SYNONYM for spoiled(that was the wrod you were referring to, correct?).....

Didn't we already establish long ago that the synonym for "spoiled" is "bad"?

So as of now we have "Christmas ____ lost ____ bad ____" ?

So, Christmas celebration lost _____ bad combination?

Do the meaning of the phrase say/imply that a Christmas celebration was somehow lost because of a bad combination (of something)? that the celebration itself lost something? That someone lost something during a celebration?

Is the phrase meant to be interrupted by some punctuation? is there maybe a third rhyme in there, e.g. "Christmas celebration, lost information: bad combination" (I know that makes no sense, it's just to illustrate what I mean)?
