<p><i> Today's picture shows a pyramid with a manger scene. Joseph has a Christmas Matins lantern in his hands. Lanterns of this type are used in the Erzgebirge on the way to Christma Matins on the morning of the 25th December.
<p>The Erzgebirgian people celebrate Christmas Eve with a feast, the Neinerlaa (literally: nine different things). There are many rules surrounding the Neinerlaa. It would take too long to mention them all here. But the nine ingredients that gave the Neinerlaa the name have special meanings. The Griene Kließ (raw potato dumplings) will bring money, the lentils or the millet little money, the beetroot red cheeks (i.e. health), the root celery fertility, bread roll milk white clothes (i.e. order in the house). Also important, there must be animals on earth (sausage from the pig), in the air (goose) and in the water (now herring, formerly also carp).
</p><p>When I decided to make a Neinerlaa puzzle, it quickly became clear there should be a sudoku, because there are nine rows, nine columns, nine boxes and nine numbers. The pioneering role of the components are symbolized in our puzzle by nine kinds of arrows. And to top this, there is sometimes a purple cell border if the sum of the neighboring cells is 9.
</p><p>By the way, one of the rules of the Neinerlaa feast is, that you may only get up when the meal is finished. So don't stop to solve the puzzle until the puzzle is solved ;-)</p></i>
</p><p>Fill in all cells of the grid with numbers 1 to 9. In every row, every column and each 3x3-fat-box each number occurs exactly once.
</p><p>If there is a purple border between two cells, then the sum of the two cells is 9. (Note: It may be that is the sum of other neighboring cells is also 9.)
</p><p>There are nine different arrows. They have the following meaning (see also the legend of the grid):
</p><p><i> Today's picture shows a pyramid with a manger. Joseph believes this one Mette lantern in his hand. Lanterns of this type are in the Ore Mountains on the way to Midnight Mass on the morning of the 25th December, worn.

But the nine ingredients that gave the Neinerlaa the name, are with meanings that influence the way next year. Thus, the grin bring Kließ (raw noodles) big money, the lenses or the millet little money, beetroot red cheeks so (health), the celery fertility, milk bread, the white clothes (that order) in the house.

<p>When I decided to take a make Neinerlaa puzzles, it quickly became clear there should be a Sudoku, for there you have neinerlaa rows, columns, boxes and figures already. The pioneering role of the components are symbolized in our puzzle by neinerlaa arrows. And to cap it which one is located in two places that neighboring fields have the sum of 9th

<p>There are neinerlaa arrows) have the following meaning (see also the legend of the graph: </p>
<ul>
<li> Don't Arrow (orange arrow): the number that is in the cell with the arrow must not occur again in the specified direction.
</li><li> Last number (increasing) (red arrow): the number in the cell with the arrow is the last increasing number in the sequence of cells that are located in the arrow direction. If the sequence is 2-3-5-1-6, the arrow would have a 5. If the sequence is 6-1-5-3-2, it would be a 6.
</li><li> last number (decreasing) (light blue arrow): the number in the box with the arrow is the last decreasing number in the sequence of fields that are located in the arrow direction. If the sequence is 6-1-5-3-2, the cell with the arrow would have a 1, in the sequence 2-3-5-1-6, it would be a 2.
</li><li> different numbers (pink double arrow): The number in the cell with the arrow indicates how many different numbers are located in the arrow direction. For example, if the sequence would be 2-3-2-6-1-3, then the number is 4.
</li><li>hidden skyscrapers (fat orange arrow): The number in the box with the arrow indicates how many cells can be seen in the arrow direction. A cell is visible if all cells in front of it have smaller numbers.
</li><li>pencil (stylized black pencil): The number in the box with the tip is 1 greater than the other cell in that the pencil is.
</li><li>smaller numbers (bold green arrow): The number in the box with the arrow indicates how many fields in the direction of the arrow containing smaller numbers (Note: In the direction of the arrow the same number is possible. This is different than usual with this puzzle format.)
</li><li>pandigital product (yellow ellipse with a black arrow): in the yellow ellipse is the product of the numbers on the arrow. The number is read in the ellipse as a two-digit number from left to right. For example, when the arrow numbers are 3 and , then in the ellipse are the numbers 1 and 5 (3 * 5 = 15).
</li><li>sum arrow (green rectangle with a black arrow): the green rectangle contains the sum of the numbers on the arrow.
</li></ul>
<p>I wish nine types of delights with this puzzle, a Happy Christmas and Glück auf.
