The idea of a Christmas bonus skill was really cool, but I didn't find it highly educational. It also isn't something that one would use all year. I was thinking it would be better if there was an all inclusive lesson on Holidays. It would be more practical, and is one of very few school-appropriate topics that Duolingo doesn't appear to have hit down on. Maybe it could just be added in as like "Time and Dates 2" or something along those lines, but knowing the names of important dates is monumental to fitting into a culture, and I personally, along with many other frequent users of this site I'm sure, intend to use the knowledge I gain here outside of my own nation.

I really love the idea of bonus skills to learn. I agree that the Christmas one was a little too specific. Holidays is a good idea. In fact, anything that also teaches us a little about the culture seems like a double win for us. I'm even happy to have to pay lingots for it. After all, I have to earn it somehow.
