Oh! Hello there! I am glad you could join me. Now, I need your help... It is Christmas and we need to decorate the tree for this beautiful town and its kind people. Beautiful decorations and ornaments have been magically appearing on this frozen lake... Please guide me as I skate around to pick up the ball ornaments. This is going to be fun!
