In this image, there are 6 different Christmas trees. One of them isn’t like the others. Can you figure out which one?

Don’t scroll down until you think you have the answer. Make sure you look closely at the decorations and the different snow patterns on the trees. If you think this is too easy, give one of these impossible-to-solve Christmas brainteasers a try.

Time’s up! The Christmas tree that isn’t like the other is number two.

The two lights on the bottom branches of Christmas tree number two are two different colors.
