It's probably safe to say a lot of people are looking forward to the end of 2020, and the start of something new, with hope on the horizon in 2021. And though your plans may look different this year, that doesn't mean you can't countdown to 2021 in fun (but small) ways, like this fun brainteaser. In a sea of colorful pocket watches stopped at five minutes to midnight, one of them is telling the wrong time. Can you spot which one?

Personalized online gift retailer, GiftsOnline4U.com created a series of festive brainteasers to bring you a little extra holiday cheer in a year when many may need it.

Though finding the pocket watch with the wrong time seems easy enough in theory, the way the company designed the seek-and-find puzzle makes things a little more difficult. For example, a few of the watches are a different color than the mostly gold ones, intentionally designed to throw brainteaser-lovers off. The fastest time someone found the watch with the wrong time is 20 seconds. See if you can beat that below:

For those who solved the festive brainteaser, congratulations! If you didn't, don't fret. You're not alone. Sometimes it just takes a little extra time. (Ha, get it?) Tip: Narrow your search for the pocket watch with the wrong time to the bottom right quadrant.

You'll find the solution below, so don't keep scrolling if you want to solve the holiday seek-and-find puzzle on your own.

It's coming.

Stop scrolling.

You may regret it.

This is your last chance.
