Each day has an envelope which features a misinterpretation of one of the twelve days of Christmas.

Light patterns start at the stamp (top right) and proceed clockwise.  When reading the patterns, R = red, G = green, B = blue, and Y = yellow.  The assumption of four light colors is made here.  (Feel free to add the five-light patterns if you have them.)

Day 1: Conspicuous ConsumptionEdit

  • A leafless pear tree with a (presumably partridge's) nest in it. This might refer back to 2012 Holiday pack, which could've purchased "341 partridges in 341 pear trees ."
