There I will keep you updated on everything that is currently being updated and what has finished. I am hoping to get the mod out sometime November but I cannot promise anything with college starting up!
Thank you so much for your patience and I can't wait to get the finished mod out there.
I welcome you, Wintercraft! A mod that adds more wintry/Christmasy items/blocks/events into your Minecraft worlds! Have you ever wanted Santa to visit or maybe have it snow in every biome? Then check this mod out for just that and much more!
This is the second release/stage of this mod, and I'm planning for one more major release before this mod is complete.

Snow everywhere during the months of December and January!
Santa Visits when you leave some Cocoa and Cookies for him!
Christmas Decorations galore!
New Animals and Monsters!
Much, much more!

Snow Everywhere! During the months of December and January in real-time, it will snow in every biome and freeze up the water everywhere. This of course can be changed in the config to how you wish.
Santa is Coming to Town!
Constructing a tree like the one above will grant you the chance for Santa to come! You can have the ornaments and wool whatever color you desire but you must always place the star last! After you should hear a jingle that tells you Santa can visit. The last step is to carry one Hot Chocolate and one Christmas Cookie in your inventory when going to bed. Also keep in mind that there is only a 50% chance that he will actually come so keep on trying if you did everything right. You'll know that you did it correctly when your treats are missing, you hear a humble voice, and you see the presents underneath the tree.
Here's an older but still helpful video on how to set up a tree:
Sometimes these icy domes will spawn with Presents inside! But be warned, as deadly Mini Snow Golems also inhabit the igloo, and they are not welcome to people coming into their home.
Giant Candy Canes!
These giant treats will always have something special underneath them. Sometimes it is good, sometimes bad. Also remember harvesting the Candy Cane Logs will need a Candy Cane Axe.
This rare structure houses the Elves. There house is filled with goodies if you're lucky enough to find one.
