SANTA DAILY MONEY

Santa Daily Money is pretty self-explanatory. Throughout the month, Daily Money will have the chance to be higher than any other time during the entire year... BUT there is also the chance you will only be offered low amounts as well. You will have to decide to hold out to see if you can get a high amount or snag it when you see anything above the normal highest of 2,500 galleons. Keep in mind that the multiplier hour will continue throughout the month so you must decide if you will wait for a chance at an even higher amount and possibly risk it all or claim it before then for a guaranteed bonus.

POINSETTIAS

Users will be able to try their hand at growing their very own poinsettias again this year. Once more, you will be using space in Hagrid's Hut to grow several different colors of poinsettias, depending on which seed you plant. Some colors are widely available, while with others you'll have to do some digging around to find.

Poinsettias are very similar to the pumpkins from Halloween, although they do differ slightly.


- You must tend your plant each day with supplies/tools bought from Luna's General Store. (Please remember to equip the supplies and tools from your inventory.)
- You must have a seed to plant, which can be bought here. (Seed prices and types DO change so check back often.) Additionally, some seed types will fall as REs.
- You can then plant your seed in Hagrid's Hut once you are all ready to go!
- "Special action" items are ONE USE ONLY and will disappear once you use them.


Once your poinsettia reaches the small size you may sell it for galleons here. The amounts can vary widely from each shop and throughout the day. Make sure you check back often if you want to try and get the highest price for your plant!

For an even more in-depth guide, you can go here. To access the FAQ go here.

Poinsettias can be planted until late evening on December 31st, 2018. Hagrid's Hut will close late in the evening on January 7th.
- All planting supplies and equipment will be deleted after the event.

CHRISTMAS LOTTERY


We're bringing the Christmas Lottery back this year! You can earn tickets to the lottery each day from now until December 31st by being active around the site. Once you earn a HEXmas lottery ticket, you can activate it from your inventory to get a chance at winning one of the lottery prizes. Every ticket that you activate will give you a chance to win any of the items listed on the lottery page.

You can also earn HEXmas lottery tickets by completing a daily task which will be posted in this forum and stickied and labeled with the day's date. Each day, you'll be given two or three clues that will lead you to different members of HEX's staff. You'll need to submit your guess as to who the clue is about. You MUST click the link in the day's task to submit your guesses in order to receive your ticket.


- All Christmas lottery tickets will be deleted after the lottery is drawn.

CHRISTMAS TREES IN USER INFO

People loved the Christmas trees on the user info page so much we decided to bring them back! For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, you will have the option to pick a special tree to display on your user info page. Your friends may then send you gifts that will show up under your tree! You then will have the option to open your these gifts on Christmas day!

To browse the trees that are available, go to the Tree Farm. Once you pick one you CANNOT change it for the rest of the year, so pick carefully.

On the 25th, everyone will be able to open the gifts that reside under their tree. You will have approximately one (1) week to open your gifts. You will also be able to look under everyone's trees and see what gifts they received.

FRED'S GIFT WRAPPING SERVICE

Fred's is a holiday-themed store that only opens, surprise, during certain holidays! This year, Fred will be hosting the special gift wrapping service for everyone to use!

In order to put gifts under your friend's trees (click here for more information on trees), you must wrap the gifts with special wrapping paper.


- To start the wrapping process, go here. You will need to buy wrapping paper for each gift you wish to send.
- Once you have bought your wrapping paper, go here and decide what color you want to use. Then, click "Wrap Items."
- Select your items, scroll down, and then press "Next."
- Once you are sure that is the item you want to wrap, you can finalize it and send it off.


- To view the gifts that you HAVE NOT YET SENT, click here.

- To read the FAQ, click here.


- Please note that you CANNOT put pre-wrapped gifts into the special wrapping paper and send them!

CANDY CANE GRAMS

Candy Cane Grams can be bought from Fred's all month long. They work similarly to red roses, which allow you to send a message to a friend or acquaintance!

To use a candy cane gram, click on the item in your inventory and select "send this candy cane to someone." Then, enter the username you'd like to send it to, along with the message, and the house elves will deliver it!

To check out messages sent to you click here!


Keep in mind that if you click "Remove this Candy Cane Gram," you are deleting that message forever!

MILK AND COOKIES FOR SANTA

There's no bigger expert on cookies than Santa, and we think we should put his cookie tasting skills to the test. To help with that, the Milk and Cookies for Santa item will be falling as an RE throughout the site. If you catch one, you can choose to give it to Santa to taste by clicking on it in your inventory. If Santa likes your cookies, he'll reward you with some galleons. If he's unimpressed, he won't be as generous.

Note: Milk and cookies for Santa will NOT be deleted after the event. Giving them to Santa will remove the item from your inventory. (You can't expect Santa not to eat the whole plate, after all.)

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

We all have different things that excite us during the holidays. Gift giving, holiday treats, decorations, family traditions, holiday songs... the list goes on and on! Due to that diversity, we thought it might be fun for users to share what makes them happy during the holiday season. Interested?

To share your 'Christmas spirit' go to this page. There, you'll see a text box that prompts you to write something such as a special quote, traditions, words of encouragement... whatever you want that relates to the holiday season! These submissions will appear as REs, as well as pop up randomly at the top of this forum. Even better than that, once there are enough approved entries, there will be a special page created so that you can view all of the submissions!

ADVENT CALENDAR

The house-elves think that just one gift isn't enough, so they've arranged for everyone to get twelve gifts instead! They've got a lovely advent calendar for each of us, which will give you one gift each day from now until Boxing Day. Why not end on Christmas Day? Well, the house-elves want you to celebrate with them, and Boxing Day was the traditional day when servants got the day off to celebrate with their families along with a Christmas box from their masters. The elves think the idea of a day off sounds terrible, but they loved the idea of a Boxing Day Christmas gift.

To start off your calendar, you'll need to click on the event at the top of your screen when you visit the 'MyHEX' page. From there, you simply need to check into your calendar that appears on your user info (or click on this handy link) each day to claim your daily gift! Be sure to act quick, though! Gifts can only be claimed on the day that they're assigned to, which means that the gift for the seventeenth cannot be claimed on the eighteenth and so on.

PLAYSET BUILDING

The house-elves are worried we don't have enough to play with this season, and so have arranged for all of you to help with building playsets. Playset pieces will be falling as REs from now until December 31st. There will be pieces falling for eleven different playsets, some of them old favorites and some of them brand new items! If you collect all of the pieces of a playset, you can combine them into the completed item!

Head over here to learn more about building playsets. From this page, you can see what pieces you've collected and what pieces you still need to find. If you have all the necessary pieces for one of the playsets, you'll be able to assemble the playset from that page as well.


You will have until January 14th to assemble the playsets from the pieces that will fall during this event. After that time, any unused pieces WILL be deleted and the playset assembly page will be closed.

TREE DECORATING

What's Christmas without trees? We know you already have trees for your user info page, but the house-elves insisted that wasn't good enough. So from now until December 25th, they've arranged for you to help them decorate Christmas trees! These magnificent trees can be put together by combining the right combination of lights with an undecorated fir tree. All the lights and fir trees will be falling as REs throughout the site, so keep your eyes open!

Head over here to learn more about decorating trees. From this page, you can see what lights you've collected and what lights you need for each type of tree. If you have all the necessary lights and a tree to decorate, you'll be able to decorate your very own tree to keep!


You will have until January 14th to decorate the trees using the lights and trees that will fall during this event. After that time, any unused lights or trees WILL be deleted and the tree page will be closed.
