I began this crossword by coming up with the revealer, ALL THE TRIMMINGS. Initially, I intended to use words associated with a Thanksgiving Day feast such as turkey, dressing, etc. and to pair each of these words with one other word for the theme entries. However, that did not go too far. But all was not lost... I then changed course and started to focus on things that are used as decorative trim such as fringe, cord, etc. LUNATIC FRINGE was one of the first theme entries I came up with and I did what I could to make sure it ended up in the grid for a couple of reasons. First, there was not much else in two-word combinations that ended in fringe and secondly, I really liked it a lot. So there you have it, the inside scoop with all the trimmings.
