NYT Connections Hints and Answers for May 5, 2024

The NYT Connections puzzle today, too, remained an easy solution. I began by getting the harder Blue category first, but that’s only because I am a huge cinema buff. The Yellow category came next and while I’m not tooting my own horn, I do love to work hard.

However, I’ll confess that I’ve only ever eaten a bagel with cream cheese once. As such, getting the Green category was more difficult. Thankfully, I ended up getting it anyway.

With only four words left, I combined them all to get the monstrous Purple category and the NYT Connections puzzle for May 5.
