[In recent years research has suggested that exercising our brains can have a positive effect as we grow older.  Here are a few riddles for you to think about to give your brain a little workout   The correct answers will be posted tonight at 5:55 along with my source for these brain teasers.]

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

(1) Who Am I?

You will know that I am coming
From the jingle of my bell,
But exactly who I am is not an easy thing to tell.

Children, they adore me
for they find me jolly,
but I do not see them when the halls are decked with holly.

My job often leaves me frozen,
I am a man that all should know,
But I do not do business in times of sleet or ice or snow.

I travel much on business,
But no reindeer haul me around,
I do all my traveling firmly on the ground.

I love the time of Christmas,
But that’s not my vocational season,
And I assure that is because of a sound economic reason.

(2) Five Siblings

Five siblings are they, their color is true;
One belongs to one, four are shared by two.
Connected together, some by locks;
Many meet their fate upon the rocks.
Arrange their initials, and you should
Find things that are found in a neighborhood.

What has just been described?

(3 Alphabetical Conundrums

Why is K like a sunrise?
Why is L like a warm furnace? 
Why is M a favorite with miners?
Why is N like a pig?
Why is O the only of five vowels that you can hear?
