Yes, it is a Christmas tree flavor hold. We leave ours on our wall year round though :-) In "tree" mode (upright), this hold is a highly textured pinch-jug. Basically, you can grab this hold in a million different ways. If you're pinching it, one of your fingers might just be in a little jug portion. It's weird in a good way. Or it can be grabbed as a double-handed, 2-finger, 3-finger or 4-finger jug depending on the set of "branches" you choose to grab. If you turn it upside down the lowest set of branches (now at the top of the hold) becomes a huge two-handed jug. It can also be pinched in many different ways when upside down. For just being a flavor hold, this thing is amazing in its variability. What fun it would be to populate my wall with a "forest" of these holds. Everyone needs to have at least one on their wall.
