Description
A new testing course has arrived just in time for the holiday season! Can you make it through the five festive tests GLaDOS has in store for you?

~There is an extra special secret hidden in the map....read the signs carefully to find it!

~Difficulty: Hard
~Estimated Time: 40 minutes - 2 hours

One of the best maps ever created. The beginning of the last chamber really had me stumped. I finally gave up and had to walk away for a couple of days. After a few days of rest I came back with a fresh new outlook. After about an hour I finally made it to the Light Bridge room with cube in hand. After completing the map I looked at some walkthroughs out of curiosity. It turns out that I was able to get to the Light Bridge room with out destroying a cube. Just wondering which way was the intended solution. Big thumbs up from me.

The last puzzle with neverending cube transitions is one of the best I ever found in this game. But eventually solved them all :)

It took me 3 freaking months to beat this map. And it was soooo great when I finally did it! The coolest and the hardest map I played so far! And GLaDOS was too cruel as always Love her anyway :)
