Ask him about it

He perks up a bit. "Oh yeah, some nice folk have been giving 'em away here every year for… well since the drones drove my dad's farm out of business and I moved here. But this year, they didn't come."

He huddles closer under his tree. "And I was like 'dammit, where am I gonna sleep when it snows?' But I heard somebody down at the Docks was holding things up."

"So, when it snowed, I went down there and snagged one." He shrugs.

"That's all I know. Maybe you could convince them to be more neighborly, but I sure couldn't."

For a second, you're almost able to forget the world's problems.

You've gained 20 energy of Holiday Cheer.

Grab the tree

He snaps to attention suddenly, as though he was expecting foul play, and leaps to the defense of his impromptu home.

Let him sleep
