    Looks the same as the Festive Tree, I cant double click it, and Ive been staring at it for 10+ minutes now locked down in my house waiting for it to do something.

    Evidently it's random. I saw something pop out of mine once, and it disappeared quickly. It's hard to tell what kind of critter is infesting the tree, but I like to think it's a hamster. :)

    Yeah, what pops out is very quick. Just keep it locked down and play as normal. You'll see it eventually!

    I won't spoil this little surprise but something does pop out of the tree, yes.

    Sure wish someone would "spoil the surprise" seeing as how this topic is asking what it does and not everyone was lucky enough to get one or if they did they got it on a server they can't lock it down on...

    I think it should be what we want it to be. When I was a kid, my pet hamster escaped from his cage during the Christmas season, and we couldn't find him anywhere. He was missing for over a week. Strangely, some of the nuts my mother had set out started going missing, too. Then one night she heard something moving around behind her dresser. She moved it away from the wall, and there was my hamster, looking fat and happy with remnants of the missing nuts all around him. Anyway, My trees are infested with Christmas hamsters! :D

    Just before logging off tonight, staring at it for like 20 minutes (and a couple of days) I finally saw it! I admit I was skeptical about it, but pleasantly surprised - finally! :)

    It would be so much fun if it would actually run around your house, giving you a quick chance to tame it, then whether tamed or not, run back to the tree and live in there, hehehehe. It surely is cute though. Job well done on the Devs part.

    Until now, we just had a squirrel, a chipmunk, and a hamster. I guess toads are fine, too!! :D

    I retrieved about 50 boxes on my different chars/shards and how many Infested Trees did I get?

    ZERO

    Same thing with the harpichords: How many golden ones?

    ZERO

    Please don´t ask me, how many colored bone containers I got at Halloween...

    I JUST DON`T HAVE LUCK!!!

    And it´s always the same people that get 3 trees/harpsies etc. withing 14 chars... ALWAYS

    :sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2:
