Will it only be available during the Christmas season, or will it be here permanently?

December 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamieJamJams

Only during the christmas season, so get it while you can.

Even after buying it, it disappears after Christmas?

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamieJamJams

Oh no it wont dissapear if you buy it. Once you buy it, you always have it. The ability to purchase it is what dissapears.

Anyone know when this year's Christmas bonus skills will come out?? I'm longing to fill in that block on my tree.

December 3, 2016

I was wondering the same thing. From googling it, I think the skill came out around the 11th or the 15th last year and the year before. So maybe we just have to wait a bit longer.

I sincerely hope the Christmas bonus skill will come out soon. I will be disappointed if it doesn't happen this year.

I can't wait either!

That's awesome! I've been checking and checking and still nothing! I'd love to have this skill!

It's here! It's already past midnight where I live (Dec 15 00:28), you might need to wait for the day to change. Merry Christmas!

I saw the Christmas bonus skill become available, waited to have enough lingots a few days later to also cover a streak freeze but then it disappeared as an option. I have a slot open and enough lingots but not sure why I can't buy it. Will there be other bonus skills (already have flirting and idoms) during the year if I've missed the window?

This year (2016), I've checked every couple days since the end of November, and here we are on Christmas Eve and I still don't see it. I'd really like to fill that 3rd slot.

December 24, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paul531891

It showed up only for 2-3 days and it's gone

Woohoo!

December 10, 2014

I'm guessing it's not for Danish ? I don't see it.

December 10, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/G0108

Only for courses out of beta.

Thank you :)

Yay!

This is awesome, thanks! :) I wish it was for there for the beta languages though :/

I can't get it, because it says something about having 0 slots open. Does anybody know about how to fix that? I haven't bought anything.

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cappie1980

Being Level 5 I'm guessing you're a little way through the tree, not sure why you wouldn't be able to get it. You've passed the first check point?

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vegansheep

I am having the same problem! I have enough lingots to buy it, so I don't know why it wouldn't work.

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexisLinguist

Have you passed the first eight skills? That's what you need to do. 7-9 skills first, then the slots will appear.

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vegansheep

Okay, thanks! That was it. I finished the first eight a few minutes ago and successfully purchased it.

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlexisLinguist

You're welcome. :)

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimberleyAsh

I told myself that I wouldn't buy any more bonus skills until I finish my Spanish tree, but hey, there are no rules against buying it but not completing it straight away ;)

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Samsta

Good idea, since it will be removed from the store after Christmas!

December 11, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jacob_meyer

Bonne.

It says I have no slots available. :'-(

Yes! I'm so excited!

How many lingots will Christmas skill cost?

December 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Senor_Oso

15... I think

December 5, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paul531891

December 14th - Christmas Bonus is here. It costs 30 lingots. Marry Xmas for all.

December 15, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jgarden2000

I have finished my Spanish tree but never have been able to get the Christmas bonus skill. Did I just miss it in December, or I am too far in the tree to get it anymore?

You'll be able to get it next December. This year it was only available for a few days around the 20th.

January 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FattoArancini

Thanks Dugggg. Why such a small window of availability?

January 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jgarden2000

Thanks. Hope don't miss it then :-)
