Re(4): What is an &lit?

You may well be right, David, that shorthand is often (confusingly) employed, blurring the distinction between &lit and semi- or partial &lit, though, in this case, I find it hard to accept that a clue beginning "Time to" can really be regarded as a valid definition of CELEBRATIONS, for the reason given in my original post. Actually, as Richard suggests below, I now suspect that the &lit. claim in the slip was an error. But, as I said in reply to him, I think that the distinction between &lit. and semi-&lit. is important enough to justify the extra five characters required to make it explicit.
