Here you will find guides for each activity as it is released throughout the month. Please ask your questions in this thread so we can all stay on the same page.

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.)
