<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>In the Ore Mountains to celebrate Christmas Eve with a feast, the Neinerlaa. 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, 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. Also important, there must be something about animals that live in the country (sausage), which fly in

<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><p>Incidentally, one of the customs of the Neinerlaa that you may only get up when the meal is finished. So stop until the puzzle when it is dissolved ;-)
</p><p>Fill in all fields of the diagram with the neinerlaa numbers 1 to 9 In every row, every column and each 3x3-fat-rimmed areas are neinerlaa numbers, ie each number occurs exactly once.
</p><p>If found between two fields, a violet field limit, is the sum of the two fields 9th (Note: It may be that is the sum of other fields, between 9th) </p>
<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.

<p><i>Celery root is one of the nine components of the Neinerlaa, the traditional meal on Christmas Eve in the Erzgebirge. Usually it is served as a salad. Celery has as each of the nine components of the Neinerlaa a meaning, it should provide for the blessing of children. In our case, the celery has produced sextuplets. So six puzzle species are combined in our puzzle.</i>
</p><p>Fill out the grid with tetrominoes (4-units) in the colors red, blue and yellow. Tetrominoes of the same color can touch each other only on the corners. </p>
<ol>
<li> Pastel Garden: The red, yellow and blue arrows indicate which is the color of the next tetromino in the specified direction.
</li><li>Don't Arrows: The black arrows are banning arrows. In direction of the arrow the color of the cell with the arrow may not occur again.
</li><li> Colorful Borders: An orange line is between a red and a yellow cell, a green line between a yellow and a blue cell. A purple line is between a blue and a red cell.
</li><li> Kinshi: The tetrominoes on the edge indicate a tetrominos that you can not see in the row or column. You can also see no part of it. The tetrominos on the edge could be rotated, but not be mirrored.
</li><li>Color square: The colored squares on the edge indicate the color of the first square (2x2 tetromino) in the column or row.
</li><li> Yonbun (today with three colors): The color in a circle indicates the color most frequently occurs in the immediate neighbourhood. If there is a X in a circle, then there is no unique color that occurs most frequently.
