As you found out already in my article about the Christmas Tree missions in CastleVille, Zynga has introduced a bit more holiday content to the game and we’re talking about CHRISTMAS! We’ll have to build a Gift-A-Pult (a great idea, in the end: a catapult for gifts!) and, of course, a Christmas Tree (aka Yulefest Tree) in CastleVille and start sending and receiving gifts and prepare for the holidays! I am here to share with you all the details about the Gift-a-Pult and Christmas Tree, so read on this guide if you want to know it all!

First of all, you’ll begin by placing the Yulefest Tree (Christmas Tree) in CastleVille and get the option to start building the Gift-A-Pult. After doing this, you’ll be able to start sending and receiving gifts, which act as fertilizer for your Christmas Tree.

There are five types of gifts that you can receive and send, but in order to do it, you must unlock them first. You unlock these gifts in CastleVille by receiving them. Once you receive enough of one gift, you’ll unlock the next one and be able to send that one to your neighbors and so on. It’s pretty simple, actually!

As you can see in the image at the beginning of the article (click to enlarge), every set of gifts that you complete will also upgrade your Christmas Tree, so in order to have the best looking one, you’ll need a total of 100 gifts.

Have in mind, though, that in order to send gifts to your neighbors, you need a completed Gift-A-Pult, so make sure you have it ready and click it in order to send the gifts:

Curious to find out what’s inside the Christmas Tree gifts? Simply hover your mouse over them and you’ll be told in-game. Also, you’ll get the chance to open all of your gifts on the 25th of December, so make sure that you get them all by then!
