The staff at BuzzFeed are fond of putting people in situations they might not be so familiar with, and see how they dwell for themselves.

Example: Non-Jews take the "Jewish Food Test" - though, there was a notable lack of Sephardic food on that menu.

Now, they're at it again, this time, having Jews decorate Christmas trees for the first time.

Watch as a colorful gang of yehudim try their hand at decorating trees with a variety of fixtures and ornaments. For some, it seems to come pretty naturally, for others, ahh.....not so much.

"I've never touched a Christmas tree," one Jew says. "I feel if I did, my hands would burn or something."

Makes sense.

Other Jews decorate the trees with their car keys, eat the popcorn decorations, or call out candy canes for being terrible.

If anything, this does display what Jews are completely clueless about regarding Christmas, as illustrated by the questions asked during this sketch.

"Are pine cones Christian?" one asks. Good question. Another good one is when someone asks "who is Noel, is he God or something?"

I actually have no idea. Watch below:
