Tree Decorating is a Holiday mini-game first featured in Dragon Cave's 2010 Holiday celebration newt. Starting December 25, 2010, visitors to the cave received a tree badge at the top of their scroll which led to the Tree Decorating game. Each day users visited the game, new decorations would be unlocked. The decorations could then be placed on the tree to the user's taste.

January 1st, 2011: T.J. added a opt-in function on the tree page, which gives you the possibility to receive up to 20 popcorn garlands or Christmas lights.

The first appearance of Tree Decorating took place for 12 days, from December 25, 2010 to January 5, 2011. It has since returned as a feature of the Advent Calendar.

The rules for the contest were outlined in an announcement thread on December 27, 2010. The contest prizes were awarded on February 13, 2010.

The border around the tree started out as bare branches. By the end of the event, it grew lush, complete with blooming flowers. Each day the tree was visited, the border around the Christmas tree grew.
