The content described on this page will only appear during the Christmas event.
Not to be confused with Frost Moon, a Christmas-themed invasion event.

Christmas is a seasonal event that occurs between December 15th (3DS Version December 1st) and 31st (3DS Version January 15th). During Christmas, Presents can be dropped by any enemy (1/13 or 7.7% chance), except for enemies spawned by statues. Hearts are also replaced by Candy Canes, and Mana Stars are replaced with Sugar Plums.

During Hardmode, one of the items a Present can contain is the Snow Globe, which summons the Frost Legion. Defeating it enables the Santa Claus NPC, which spawns if valid housing is available, but only during the Christmas season.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Christmas can be "activated" by setting the device's date to any date within the respective Christmas timespan.
    • Desktop version Change the computer's date to any day between December 15th and 31st.
    • Console version Disconnect from Xbox One Xbox Live / PS4 PSN and change the console time.
    • Mobile version Disconnect from automatic date/time updates and change the time manually. Note that this does not work for some devices.
    • 3DS version Go to "System Settings" and set the date there.
If a change of the device's time is undesired, applications like "RunAsDate" allow launching Terraria with a changed time and date.

    • The event has been updated, featuring several new items.
    • One single present item drops instead of three different colors.
