Never heard of that type of tree ...

Played the card game once. It got old real quick.

From the FAQ's:

How am I supposed to feel about this?

You’re supposed to think it’s funny. You might not get it for a while, but some time next year you’ll chuckle quietly to yourself and remember all this business about the hole.

No, no I won't.

Trees and tree lighting and evergreens are all about the solstice - they got grafted onto Christmas thousands of years later.
