Ok, so just wondering, (I know many people have asked this but still) why are there no Christmas skills yet? It should be easy for DuoLingo to put this in, at least for the old languages, because they already have the formatting and stuff for it. I know there ARE Christmas skills, but when will they come??! AAAAHHHH!

You sound like my little granddaughter asking for her Christmas presents the week before Christmas. Santa Claus will deliver the Christmas skill only after he has delivered all the toys to the other little boys and girls, and those boys and girls who complain too much may not get a present at all ...

Actually, I heard that there is a bonus Christmas skill that you can only buy on or around the holidays;) Feliz Navidad!

In my opinion there should be more bonus skills, e.g. Eastern and other holidays, or cuisine, cars, trips, etc. You know what I mean.

This is rather odd. I have access to my Christmas skill throughout the year. Why don't others?

It's only offered for "sale" once a year, for about a month, and then removed from the store, but not from the trees of those who've acquired it.

Yes, what womabatua said. I have not been on DuoLingo since last Christmas so I never had the opportunity to buy the skill.

I think the Christmas bonus skill is pretty weak. Some of the words aren't even new and some of the other words could easily be worked into other parts of the tree. The Christmas skill varies from language to language. Some languages have more to it than others.

Actually, I think all of the bonus skills are weak and not very helpful. I would rather have a few more lessons of actual vocabulary that is more useful.
