Christmas Tree

Winter Solstice (Christmas event) was the second Magistream event. It is also the biggest one, with big amount of gifts every user can receive. Every user has a "christmas tree" in his or her Keep and can give and receive presents.

On December 25th morning, users can open the gifts under their tree. During this time the 4 egg limit is overridden, but only for the eggs recived by gifts. Those must all be hatched before a user can grab new eggs. 

Sometimes the Solstice Caravan come around this time of year from distant lands to sell exotic creatures.

There was a traditional gifting event. Upon gifting a certain number of creatures to users, one would gain a badge (the golden mug containing a candy cane, done by Cassowary); the release of the badge was late and worried a number of users initially, who thought that there might not be a badge at all. Also, a new Christmas Tree appeared on the site. Magistream released 9 new creatures during this event.
