Deck the halls, bundle up in your warm clothes, and prepare for a Minecraft holiday celebration! ChristmasCraft features a number of changes to help you get into the Christmas spirit:
Colder biomes, meaning snow is all around!
New items and recipes for delicious Christmas-time treats!
A Christmas Tree Stand on which to grow your very own Christmas tree!
Decorations, such as Christmas ornaments, wreaths, stockings, and redstone-powered Christmas lights!
Three festive holiday music discs!
The ability to wrap up nearly any item as a Christmas present, and give it as an item or place it like a block!
A new semi-rare friendly mob, the Creeper Claus!
Santa's helpers, the Ender Elves, are here to deliver presents!
Perhaps even a visit from Santa himself??
New in version 3.0:
Deluxe twinkling Christmas lights! Crafted just like other lights, but with glowstone instead of a dye!
Fancy ice skates that give you a speed boost on ice (but slow on land)!
Also, the snowy weather and seasonal mobs are only available during the month of December (unless you change the setting in ChristmasCraft.cfg)! After that, biomes will return to normal and the snow will gradually melt.

Santa's helpers, the Ender Elves, can sometimes be found preparing presents! Their only rule: No Peeking!
Christmas Tree Stand
A sturdy base on which to grow your very own conifer! Just set it down and sprinkle some bonemeal on the top!
Nothing says "I'm celebrating Christmas!" like a lush green circle of dead plants!
Hang up your stocking and hope that Santa visits while you sleep! No peeking!
Decorate your house, your mineshaft, your trees! Hook it up to redstone and watch your electricity bills skyrocket!
Miniature glass balls in 5 fabulous colors! Hang them from your Christmas tree, or any leafy material!
No Christmas tree is complete without an elegant gold-plated star atop it!
Surprise a friend or enemy with a hand-picked item in a decorative paper wrapping! No refunds, exchanges, or re-gifting, please!
Note: Fill the center slot with virtually any item to wrap it up! Unwrap it by placing the gift on a crafting table!
Walking across ice is for chumps! Strap on a pair of these babies and you'll fly past the competition!
Candy canes are a quick and easy treat, but loaded with sugar!
Cool refreshing milk, and the richness of chocolate, yum yum!
Heat up your chocolate milk to restore even more hunger!
Note: All of the recipes below require Christmas Spices, which look like this:
Christmas Spices can be obtained by killing a Creeper Claus.
All of the nutritional value of a regular cookie, with extra Christmas spirit!
A refreshing Christmas tradition, with a hint of nutmeg! Just don't drink too much, or you'll regret it!
It's a fruitcake.

I just tested this out. It's AMAZING! One bug though. The presents from the stockings are unlimited. They stay on the ground but fill your inventory. Oh well! Still, very cool, and fits the christmas season!
