On November 30th, 2016, the main administrator on My Candy Love opened a thread for the Christmas event. The post explained what the players could expect to find in the advent calendar. You can find it here. On December 23rd, 2016, the main administrator opened another thread, this time explaining how the snowball game worked. You can find it here.
There was also a pop-up of the fairy aunt in a Christmas outfit briefly explaining the event, which appeared when the player logged in.
From December 1st to the 24th, players were able to gain various gifts from an advent calendar. The calendar was accessible by clicking on the event tent in The City. Each day, one of the numbered doors would pulsate indicating that it could be opened. Clicking on the door revealed what item the player received. Behind each door was either a piece of the Snowman outfit, a piece of the illustration, or a snowball.
From December 25th, 2016 to January 3rd, 2017, players could partake in a snowball fight. To take part, players would access another player's profile page. Above that users Student ID was a rectangular blue button that said "Send Snowball". Clicking the button would send a snowball to that player and advance the sender's garland counter. After sending a certain amount of snowballs, one of ten presents would be unlocked. Each present contained three items; either a piece of illustration and two pieces of an outfit or three outfit items.
- This is the second event to forgo having a boutique. The first time this happened was for the Halloween 2016 Event.
