Tips[edit | edit source]

This content is transcluded from Christmas § Tips.

  • 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.
  • Changing the time back to normal will cause him to die at the next sunrise.
    • If he is spawned in while it is not Christmas via TShock or similar third-party software, he will die instantly.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Santa Claus sells 39 items at one time, which is more than any other NPC excluding the post-Golem TavernkeepDesktop VersionConsole Version, who has 40 items available at one time.
  • It is not possible to buy back items sold to this NPC since the last item slot cannot hold any sold items.
  • In the Console version Console version, he has a description in the housing section saying "A jolly old fellow".
  • "Ho ho ho, and a bottle of... Egg Nog!" is a reference to the fictional sea song Dead Man's Chest, originally from Robert Louis Stevenson's adventure novel Treasure Island which was first published in 1883. The song contains the verse "Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum".
    • The Pirate also makes this reference, saying, "Yo ho ho and a bottle of....blinkroots!"
    • Original recipes for traditional alcoholic eggnog can include rum, meaning Santa really is quite a jolly old fellow.
  • He has the least number of possible names, having only one.
  • In the housing menu, he is described as "Santa Claus the Santa Claus"
  • Even with the use of cheats or mods, if Santa Claus is spawned in he will immediately be killed if it is not Christmas or your device's date is not set to Christmas.
  • Santa hating the Tax Collector is likely a reference to Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, where protagonist Ebenezer Scrooge (Whom the Tax Collector is based on) despises everything to do with Christmas, hence Santa disliking him.
