Spoiler, scroll down to see info

Henning Holesenga

He's located at Newland City Whompa. Well, he runs around there, trying to catch escaped toys. With masses of toys still runing around, you can figure out fairly fast, he could use some help. Chat with him (when he stops, or /follow him and do it while he's runing) and he'll give you task of killing 3 of escaped toys (doesn't matter what kind). When done, Snowman will spawn into your inventory.

Miss Wallace

This lady isn't as energetic as Henning, so you can find her standing still at Borealis Whompa. And since the helping old ladies is a thing to do, she sends you out with shopping list. If you bring her back Tripple Cherries, Atrox Wonder Pie and Mongol Muffin, she'll reward you with Gingerbread House.

But when you want to learn how to make gingerbread stuff, she'll just equip you with Gingerbread Dough and tell you to check out Eddie and Stolt (loacted at Newland Desert Whompa). You can buy Cookie Cutters (- Woman, - Man, -Heart) from Eddie and Cookie Frosting & Personal Food Cooker from Stolt. After that's the cooking is left to you. Example:

[ts_t]Gingerbread Woman (Dough)[ts_ts]Personal Food Cooker[ts_ts2]Gingerbread Woman (Baked)[/ts_t]
[ts_t]Gingerbread Woman (Baked)[ts_ts]Cookie Frosting[ts_ts2]Gingerbread Woman[/ts_t]


Dancing Santa Vendor

Note that these are NOT the Dancing Santa dolls from years past. They are a bit more risque; Dancing Mr. Claus is an Atrox in holiday boxers, while Dancing Mrs. Claus is an Opifex female clad in a holiday bikini. They last for a few moments and lock your Adventuring skill for 5 minutes.


Wild Santa Leets

Santa Leets spawn around tower sites (as seen on picture, at times several on top of each other). However, those don't give quests like those found in major cities, but carry Cristmas Gifts with them. So, nothing will get you faster in seasonal spirit than massacring bunch of innocent, cuddly, little furry creatures.
Cristmas gifts contain (r-click to open):
- Propeler Hat
- Funny Arrow
- Monster Sunglasses
- Gingerbread House
- Gingerbread Woman
- Gingerbread Man
- Gingerbread Hearth
- Santa Leet Doll
- Snowman
- Candy Cane
- The Naughty List Bikini Bottoms
- The Naughty List Bikini Top
- The Naughty List Boxers
- Candy Cane Backpack (sorry, didn't have time to grab exact name before downtime)

Phasefront Vendor


Special Seasonal offer (it will be removed from shop after X-mas/New Year):
Phasefront Phantom - Candy Cane Flyer Cost: 200PP

You can not gift wrap them. Cristmas Gifts that drop from Santa Leets are already wrappd tho. Unfortunatlly, you can only trade "old" Gifts (simple red box, not the "new" elaboratly drawn multi-color boxes) which contain one of first 3 items listed. Maybe 17.7.1. patch will fix that.

The new Christmas Gifts continue to be NoDrop. :-P

As for the "Old School" Christmas Gifts which can be traded to others, you can easily identify them by their Red Wrapping Paper with Yellow Ribbon, and a Description that says "Merry Christmas!".
