Santa Claus is an NPC vendor, and arrives after the Frost Legion has been defeated. He is only available during the Christmas holiday season (December 15th-31st). After the holiday season has ended, he will die and only spawn at the next Christmas season. If he was spawned at a non-holiday time, he will die instantly. In the mobile version, however, the Frost Legion does not need to be defeated and he will come randomly during the holiday season.
Santa Claus can be spawned at other times by changing your computer's date setting December 15th-31st. Changing the time back to normal will cause him to die at the next sunrise.
Once Santa Claus appears, he will sell the following:
- Ho ho ho, and a bottle of... Egg Nog!
- What? You thought I wasn't real?
- Care to bake me some cookies?
- Santa Claus is actually a copy of the Clothier. In other words, his skin is a copy of the Clothier, but with the Santa set.
- Santa Claus sells more items than any other NPCs.
- In Console, he has a description in the housing section saying "A jolly old fellow"
