The Holly Jolly Holiday World Event lasts for 25 days.

Individual Prizes

25 silly sweaters - Secret Presents (1x1 decoration). It drops 4 silly sweaters every 4 hours.
250 silly sweaters - Present Pavers (1x1 decoration).
800 silly sweaters - Decorated Chimney (decoration).
2,100 silly sweaters - Tinsowl (rare, Electric/Nature). Incubation time 16:00, evolution time 14:00.
4,000 silly sweaters - Nutcracker (super rare, Water/Fire). Incubation time 20:00, evolution time 22:00.


Community Prizes - You will receive ALL community prizes earned by the community if you collect at least 600 silly sweaters. But please keep going after you get your 600 because it's usually down to the wire on the last day that these get completed and huge levels of participation are required by all to help achieve the final goal.

140,000,000 silly sweaters - Candy Cane (decoration)
? silly sweaters - Workbench (decoration)
? silly sweaters - Candy Crane (super rare, Electric/Fire). Incubation time 10:00, evolution time 11:00.


If you have 6 large / grand farms with food planted 20 hours a day, and collect them from the secret presents you earn as the first prize 3 times a day, and have something incubating in the nest 18 hours a day, that is 150 silly sweaters per day and 2,200 (aprox.) sweaters for the event. If we get an arena during the event, that's more. If you win sweaters in the mine, more as well. This is doable for anyone online a few times a day, if timed well. And the community prizes require LOTS of people participating so please help the community effort if you can.

I'll keep updating as new info becomes available. Good luck to everyone! :)



As we now know the final individual prize requires 4000 sweaters, I made a daily collection chart that shows how many sweaters you should have by update time that day. This chart can also be found in post 3 on page 1.

The first individual animal resembles the snow owl from DS.

I love the Secret Santler! I still need the Storking, so I put my Ampeater in with my Pyro Pony...got an 11 hour timer, which I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I'm sure the Santler has a longer breeding time than 11 hours.

And the new habitat is beautiful too...I have no room for one, but I might be able to move some animals around so I can sell a nature habitat and make some space for it.

Tournaments are the limited time events that happen approx every 1-2 weeks. You'll have a certain amount of days to win 18 or 30 rounds of opponents, and you'll earn a new exclusive animal upon completion.

Often a force close of the game and then starting it back up again will resolve the issue. Remember to use the All tab when looking in your storage.

A 25 day World Event. I guess extending the last one to 17 days was to get us warmed up. I guess they wanted to cover multiple holidays and not just Christmas.

Yes I didHappyHeartBaker. But it shows up in a few minutes. I had to go into the holly holiday icon then back into storage. And it's not a sweater, it's a square little present which produces sweaters. Get back in and hopefully you will see it. Best of luck to you and everyone else playing.

Ok this will be my first one that I've done this, I'm totally lost. How do you get the items like sweaters?

For this event the token is a Silly Sweater.

Tokens can be collected by performing the following actions:

1) Harvesting from farms - 1 token for every hour of growing time
2) Hatching an egg from the nest – 1 token for every hour of incubation time on the nest (speeding up the hatching does not affect the number of tokens collected).
3) Mining – Tokens may be collected when you find a Rune but it is a random event.
4) Battle – If a tournament starts during the event, It will probably give 2 tokens for each round won.
5) Token producing Prize - The first individual prize needs to be placed in the Forest, so you can collect tokens from it. Every four hours it produces 4 tokens. There will also be a similar type item available for purchase in the shop that gives you tokens. It is not necessary to purchase the one in the shop to finish the event successfully.

The icon for the event displays the number of token you have collected.

Thanks for the info. I have 3 farms all growing the 20 hour crop, so that should give me some. As for the battles the only ones that I've been doing is the ones that I can do every 10 minutes.

If you are fighting every 10 minutes then you must be doing a Battleground. Battles in a Battleground do not give you tokens for the World Event only battles in the Battle Arena. There is no tournament in the Battle Arena right now. You will probably need more than 3 farms to collect enough tokens for the last individual prize. Typically you need to collect about 153 tokens per day to get the last individual prize. I suggest you work on getting more farms up and running if you can. The maximum number of farms that you can have varies by level and the reaches a maximum limit of 6 for any player.

Oh my mistletoe! They certainly do luckily we're neighbours I'll enjoy visiting this beautiful sight as you add animals. I didn't get the first one just the TinkerToyShop. That's lovely. I plan to get this one just soon as I'm brave enough to make my way to the store for a gift card..lol

Has anyone had time to calculate 'reality checks' on where our sweater daily counts should be?

I haven't seen any information about how many Silly Sweaters are required for the final individual prize. In general past World Events have required about 153 tokens/day.

We have a lot of time on this one. If it is correct that the final individual prize is 2600 silly sweaters (as reported elsewhere), we only need 104 per day to be on track. Seems to good to be true. Maybe the total required is more than 2600 and the other source is incorrect.

The final community prize, Candy Cane, is listed as a rare animal on an external source. Seems very odd to have it be rare and not super rare as usual (and as listed in the OP). By my calculations, it will be the first time. I noticed the same thing in DS too.

I believe this World Event is going to be easier to complete than the previous ones, due to the timing of it (25 days?), because of the Holiday Season. Anyway, I'm not going to drop the ball, I'm going to try to keep planting/mining/hatching as much as I can, just in case the other prizes require more tokens than usual (since we'll have more time to complete it).

So far, as mining is concerned, not every time you hit something in the mine you end up with silly sweaters, but when I did find them, it was always two for each hit.

I'm at 258 silly sweaters now, and we're in the middle of the day here in CA, so, I think my count is good.

Thank you jojopeanut, visits are always welcome to my forest. :) I hatched the toy poodle and the reindeer is currently hatching so animals have been moved and added, pop by and take a look. I am evolving the rocking horse currently and I'm sure another winter animal will be sent to evolve, so if it looks as if no one is home that may be why. Lol

As for sweater collecting, it does seem required amounts have increased but with the added days I'm sure it's still doable. I'm currently at 399, a little behind where I would like to be. But I'm trying to get several animals to epic right now therefore I need food. Nexus nuts and charm cherries are better options for me so I am loosing around 18 sweaters a night versus if I would just plant bananas before bed or rune prunes for the day. Good luck all, if we stay on top of breeding and planting we can definitely do this.

The subsequent numbers imply that we will need to gather more than 2600. I doubt we would be so lucky. The usual daily number is in the ballpark of 150. I have a feeling it will be a lenient number, but much more than 104. My apologies if I implied otherwise.

Looking at the past few world events, the final individual prize requires about 1.8 times the number of items as the second to last individual prize. We now know that Tinsowl requires 2100 silly sweaters thanks to cardinalpsy. My guess, based on past events, is that Nutcracker will require 3700 to 3800 silly sweaters (2100 x 1.8 = 3780).

If that is correct, we will need about 150 silly sweaters per day to win the final individual prize which is a number in keeping with previous world events.

cardinalpsy
12-21-15, 02:49 AM
Oh dear, just got the Tinsowl and just saw that we will need 4000 sweaters to win the last individual prize (Nutcracker). Very challenging. Currently the community has managed to collect just over 45 million sweaters.

Very good to know! Thank you so much for sharing!

Edit: so that means we need to collect 160 sweaters a day.

In 8 hours from now, 3 days have passed, so by then you should have 480 sweaters to be on track to get the last individual prize!

Jojopeanut I visited your forest this morning and your winter habitats look amazing!

Good to know 160 a day is the magic number we need. Not too far off from the normal 153 (I believe) that we normally need. Keep planting, breeding and mining everyone, we can do this! Happy silly sweater collecting to all!

Oh dear, just got the Tinsowl and just saw that we will need 4000 sweaters to win the last individual prize (Nutcracker). Very challenging. Currently the community has managed to collect just over 45 million sweaters.

Oh my! I guess I have to plant 8 hour crops overnight instead of nexus nuts. :-(

Averaging 160 a day for 25 days is a lot to do over a holiday. In the last 5 world events, we have had to average 153, 158, 158, 158, and 158 a day to get the final individual prize. This is the highest average I can recall. Good luck to all!

Thank you so much for the update cardinalpsy!

Same here, I too will likely be limitedly on the forum from Dec. 25th - Jan. 4th, unless we have good internet access abroad. So, happy holidays already to everybody!

Now, to return to this thread: I was certain I was going to buy the Glowing Grove habitat for my main forest too, but I'm not so certain anymore. On my secondary account I at times like to experiment a little bit and as on that account I'm in no hurry to speed a lot, and play several of the goal games too, over time I had acquired enough gems to have allowed me to buy all three of the winter habitats. For those who want to take a look: that forest has the S8 ID 'Ribedy' (without quotes) and as forest name 'Lafa'. I have set up the three winter habitats there on the lower blue shelf and there they look fabulous. But... but... but.... The Glowing Grove may be just a tiny bit too 'Christmassy' for me to want to put it on the upper blue shelf in my main forest. In the secondary forest I'm currently 'staging' a bit what they would/could look like in my main forest too, so those who take a look may see them in different configurations. The two obvious configurations for my main forest would be to have the three of them in a row that 'goes up from left to right, bottom to top', or to have them as a 'symmetrical triangle' with the Winter Wonderland in the top centre, the Tinkerer's Workshop to the lower left and the Glowing Grove to the lower right.
I had envisioned the former for my main forest (with the current 3 gem habitats remaining unchanged, and the winter ones directly to the right of them). But when doing that, and when making the two small creeks of the two habitats with water meet up, I can't really find a configuration that I'm 100% pleased with. The Christmas trees in the Glowing Grove draw in the attention a bit too much, and (I fear) away from the surrounding Gem habitats... In time I could perhaps, if desired, move the three habitats (or only two of them) down to the lower blue shelf, but that would require some serious reordering and I don't know exactly how I could best do that...
Looking at it now, the second option (i.e. the 'triangle shape') will probably be nicer, with the Tinkerer's Workshop and Winter Wonderland where they are now, and the Glowing Grove to the lower right (i.e. directly to the right of the Tinkerer's Workshop. That way it would all look a lot more symmetrical and I wouldn't miss out on a premium habitat... The next question then becomes when to buy it. With the world event going on I don't want to be down to 5 Grand Farms again and there's a queue for the flower. It will take several days still before I can expand again, and then (as it's on the blue shelf), that will take 12 hours expansion time + 33:20 hours foliage clearing. I'm at 5 bombs and 29 runes now, so realistically spoken it will still take around a week or so to be able to move the habitat in its place then. That would be a problem if I manage to breed the Rudolphin and want to aim for the Teddy Bear, in which case I'd have to swap out a farm for a flower at least for the duration of a Rudolphin evolution.
All of it is doable, but is a bit of a hassle. I wished we knew how long the habitat sale will last. I'd love to secure it before today's update, but I think I'd better wait, and just hope that it will stay on sale until at least Friday or next week Tuesday (if I can even play then, that is...).
Looks like I've got some thinking to do later today.... Any advice is welcome. ;)

...and as a picture says more than a thousand words, here's what I mean...:

27122

I think this will be the configuration I'll choose for the main forest, but then set-up in the lower centre of the upper blue shelf.

That looks very nice Ogreve!

Sandybelle, thank you so much for figuring out daily amounts, it's extremely helpful. I felt like I was collecting much slower than I normally do for these events since I am not planting rune prunes but sticking to nexus nuts and charm cherries. But according to you figures, with 787 already today I'm doing just fine. I shall have my chimney shortly and then on to collecting for the owl which I must say is probably my favorite of these three animals. Happy collecting everyone!

12-22-15, 06:44 PM
The only animal I will get will probably be the community prize, tinsowl or none. Because I will be on vacation and I only have five grand farms plus a normal one. I can only get on in the night and I can't buy gems to speed up prunes. I average about 104 per day, which means I'll barely make it to 2000 before the event ends.

And these from the event & trios 10 days to go I only need the teddy bear I'm breeding only for him until hopefully I'm sucssesfull.

I'm doing some rearranging of animals with my habitats too, with the addition of Santa claws and fingers crossed that I will breed a teddy bear my winter habitats will be full. I am really considering buying another Glowing Grove to house my world event animals. We will see though what I eventually decide. If I do the tinker shop will be moved back to where the ice cream habitat is and it will go in front of that.
Happy breeding to you, I hope you get the teddy bear, with the unicorn I bred trying for teddy bear (my 5th) finally getting moved to the nest I can put in another attempt. Surprised I did not speed the unicorn out of the den but not sure I will have it in me to wait for her to hatch, it's really costing me teddy bear attempts.

Your counter is broken. Hahahha
It should have a green ring around close to 3/4's of the candy cane circle.


Side note... I just realized the candy cane reward is the same thing they gave us last year. Only last years candy cane gave us candy canes every 4 hours and it wasn't the first community prize. So now I will have 2 candy canes that I won't use.

Here is something to think about.

The Holly Jolly is the 10th World Event.
Over the past events certain changes have been made , some great and some not so good .

Events 1- 3 : All had 4 animals, the habitat was a community prize
Events 4- 8 : All had 4 animals , the habitat was an individual prize and a new element was added ( shamrock, spring , ice cream,Egyptian and autumn).. ...................Good move TL
Events 9 : Had 4 animals , no new element :( , and had to buy the habitat :(:(
Event 10 : animals reduced to 3 :( , again no new element :( , and have to buy the habitat.

Giving a new element was a superb addition . It gave a new force to reckon with in the tournaments and battleground. But can also understand why it was taken away as housing special elements would require a special habitat , and many players who have expanded to the max feel the crunch of space .

But why reduce the number of animals TL . And instead you are giving decorations which are totally useless for players who have no space to put habitats let alone so many decorations!!

And lastly making the habitat available only for gems. Please rethink this and make it available for coins or make us earn it as a prize please.

It seems to be the current pattern for the game where there is a little less value in the prizes being offered. There were some additional reductions in the latest Spin to Win Wheel as well. Hopefully S8 has overshot a little and some value will be restored to strike the proper balance. On the bright side, at least the prizes are Electric hybrids with a Water/Fire. At least they aren't Earth/Fire which now total 28 animals.

Re:post 83,

I agree that the habitat should be a prize. I also like unique elements... Why couldn't these world and trio habitats have duo elements, one unique and one common? The animals could also have duo elements one unique and one common.

Last years Santa claws (3rd part of a trio...now a prize on spin to win) has duo elements. Because of the duo elements the holiday habitat was removed and the Arctic abode offered with the ability to house all of the trio.

As a matter of fact, In the interest of space for the new 2 and 3 element habitats I have temporarily removed no less than 3 trio habitats that sell for coins from my forest. I do hope to replace them in the near future.

1. My Valentine Habitat, which housed 3, a dove and 2 duplicate cats. I sold it in favor of a duplicate palatial garden habitat that houses all 3 plus 1 more.

2. My Skull Trio Day of the Dead habitat which housed NO ONE as I never saw a single of those animals even though I tried relentlessly. I sold it to make room for, well all the amazing new and re released habitats that I can put anything in!

3. My musical Habitat which only held one Lullabison. I sold it to make room for the latest habitat and the lullabison is moved to an earth habitat that I felt suited my decor.

I'm about a day and a half ahead which is great considering I'm not planting rune prunes and know I'm missing out on sweaters at night when I only plant nexus nights before I go to sleep.
Good luck everyone!

I have been planting my normal crops for the most part. A few more Nexus Nuts during the day because of the holidays. I am doing really well with 1,834 so far. A steady stream of breeding commons has resulted in virtually no breeding gaps and I have been fairly lucky mining. Of course having 20 hour crops and 15 explosives ready for the start of the event gave me a good start.

I am just slightly over with 1550. I think breeding with nature + fire has definitely had an effect on my silly sweater count, getting many 3, 6 and 7 hour timers in the den doesn't help much. But because I'm planting 6 rune prunes and 6 nexus nuts daily, I should stay above Sandybellee's calculations throughout the rest of the event.

I'm at 1842 this am. Should be close yo owl by end of the day.
While I appreciate the additional days for the event, it is disappointing that we only get 3 animals, it takes Forever to even get the 1st animal, we don't get a habitat, & the animals are not a special element.
It feels like I've been working hard for a long time just to be getting close to earning 1st animal (verses silly useless decorations that I barely have room to place in my forest).

There is still plenty of time to catch up. Great food supply! I usually try to keep my food supply around 200,00 but with so many new animals lately I'm down to only 10,000. I have decided I will start hoarding again on Saturday, that should give me enough time to stock up if the next storybook is indeed the middle of January.

You guys do so well collecting food! I use it pretty much as soon as I get it, unless there is a specific animal I want to level straight up, I just use it. Even then, I give it all the food I have then start again! Even if that means it doesn't get straight to the next evolution point!

My enthusiasm for this event is slowly but surely waning.
1. It is 25 days looooong...
2. The first animal one gets would be on day 11 or 12 if one is not doing any speed breeding etc and just managing 160-170 silly sweaters a day.
3. It has only 3 animals compared to 4 in previous events.
4. We have to buy the habitat instead of it being a prize in the event.
5. There are 5 decorations.... What are we going to do with those. There is hardly any space for more habitats let alone any decorations.

Please TL do a rethink in your planning for next world event!!

I agree with you...as much as I really like a lot of the decorations (I particularly love the forthcoming workbench), I have never placed any of them. I just don't have the space, and I imagine that unless you're a brand new player, not many of us do. Four animals would have been better versus five decorations that are like,y going to stay in storage for a majority of us.

Not only only is there not room for them at one point when I played on my iPad and was having major issues with the game one mod even responded having lots of decorations can cause issues with the game loading. SMH, so why continue to give them to us?
I wish we still received a habitat from the world events, being this is the second world event that a habitat wasn't a prize, that is probably the new norm. A lot of the decisions TL is making, as of late, seem to be pointed toward giving the players less and offering more things through gems.
At least we have the opportunity to earn 3 new animals.

3 animals of 4 animals whatever, problem is we don't have place to put all of them ! most of my world event animals and tourney prizes are staying in storage because lack of places :(
same for dragon story but it is better since they released lot of plots recently.

the only way to solved that is to create 5(6?)animals habitats but they obviously don't want to do it :(

I agree with you Clark_Wayne and am sad because none of the community manager gives us an answer. I've sold to make room for habitats to create already 4 farms. Now nothing works, I ask more country about to give back and one community manager us an answer give. Thank you

I agree that there are way too many decorations. My storage is littered with it as I only have space for putting some 5-10 tiny decorations as everything is chock-full of habitats. I would prefer one special habitat (like before) instead of ALL of the decorations.
My Tinsowl has been in storage for a while now but the nest is 24/7 occupied with the unbroken chain of limited animals this entire month of which I've only bred a Storking and a Yule Mule (at the last minute). So much for a "quiet December". :P
It'll take quite a while more before I can even start hatching eggs from storage if it continues like this, and there's a long queue waiting for their turn.

My tinsowl will be out of his first evolution in less than an hour and yes hatch time is 15. I actually sped away one of my confetti yeti fails to put him in the nest, he is my favorite of the 3 world event animals and I couldn't have him in storage any longer. :)

I'm ahead of schedule with +3200.
Hopefully everyone can stay with this one to get to the last community prize. While I appreciate the extra time since this event overlapped with the end-of-year holiday season, I have to say, it is taking Forever. Besides the fact that we're getting less animals & they seem to be Very spread apart. Who's got room for deco?? Not me:). So all this work & all I've got so far is 1 animal.

With the holidays and a late start I was behind. But I've caught up but not with much room to breathe. Can't fall behind again. I agree this one is taking forever. The last community prize looks like a storking clone.

I'm a little behind at 2,931 silly sweaters. I've always been this close to the target but I've never been on track or ahead. I'm not entirely sure how to get back on track without using gems to speed breedings or food :(

I'm at 3099 silly sweaters, averaging 162.7 a day, just squeaking over the 160 silly sweaters per day required for Nutcracker. This is the toughest world event I have participated in. Add to that it is running so long and over two major holidays when folks won't have as much time to play. I understand needing to make money, and I do spend on this game, but this feels predatory to me.

01-06-16, 01:42 PM
I got the Nutcracker today. This one isn't any harder than the previous ones - if you just keep your farms and nest busy you can get there even by checking your game once or twice a day. Perfect easy-going event for the holidays. But I agree it runs way too long this time...

01-07-16, 07:23 AM
Due to the holidays I am wayyyyy behind on this event. Still trying but doubt I will make it without spending a lot of gems. I will wait and see how far behind I am in a few days and decide whether or not to spend. These are usually not too difficult, but miss a day or two and boom you are out of it.

Congratulations Clark_Wayne!!!

Count me in as ready for it to end. I'm just above by about 30 the required for everyday. Seems like forever especially when we actually started this last year..lol would've been nice as other's stated to have one more animal and less frivolous decoration.

Still running behind, I have only 3,385 silly sweaters. I'm not sure how I fell behind, I planted rune prunes and I never leave an empty nest or den, I have mined all my runes and I'm participating in the current tournament. :(

Are you harvesting your rune prunes as soon as they are done? Are animals being moved from the nest as soon as they are complete? With 3 days 5 hours left you could still make it, are you able to do any speed breeding? You need 205 a day, minus 120 for your rune prunes you still need 85, 24 hours of hatching and let's say 10 more for tournament and mining you are looking at making up approximately 153 sweaters total. Very close and my calculations did not include the extra 5 hours left. So with a little speed breeding you may be able to make it up, you'd get the sweaters from hatching and bombs to mine for sweaters. Depending on when the last batch of rune prunes are complete I'd be sure to plant hour crops and set a timer to harvest on time.
Good luck LonePudding, I really hope you make it.

I do harvest the rune prunes on time, but doing the same with the breedings is a little harder for me. I only have 30 gems (:() so I was thinking of force breeding some 17hr koala cadabras. Maybe I could speed through them when they get down to 5 hours or so?
It's going to be a very close one. Thanks for the help and encouragement :)

It's going to be a tight squeeze getting the last prize, I'm lacking 542. The eggs on the nest is the only things that is going to help me get this done. I will be getting 480 from the harvest of farms. We will see what I can get from this.

jojopeanut
01-09-16, 12:05 PM
Another thing that might help l did having a few hour's lag time in the breeding den and hatching. The racmoon hatched, dreambat breeding trying for the knitenkitten. I purchased a rock rino egg. 2 hours to hatch 2 silly sweaters. In reality a frostfang is better 4 hours which I'm going to do today.

Omg in all my figuring I forgot about the Santa bag giving silly sweaters every 4 hours. That will help too! You got this LonePudding. You can get there!

I had still not an event where I got to collect without stress the last price. But in this event, I'm almost no progress, I'm still missing 1000 sweater and I have only Farms just where I sell 1 farm and then restore the Evolving Flower buy. Because I'm on the limit from land and can not buy more land expansion

Hi, I just wanted to ask, do your tinsowls open their wings? I evolved mine once (he is like at level 5 or so) and he never opens his wings when he is in the habitat or when he is battling, he always has them like glued to his body :( Should I evolve him again? Maybe it's a stupid thing but the first time I saw him (with the wings wide open) I thought he was so cute but now it looks kind of weird!
Anyone knows?

Not Sure. Mine is at level 5. So far He only opens wings when I fed him from level 4 to 5.

I don't change my planting scheme for World Events. I plant Charm Cherries when I can and Nexus Nuts when I can't play for more than a couple hours. I can usually average more than 190 tokens a day.

Mine is at level 10 and he does not open his wings while in habitat. When in battle, he opens once when he strikes.

You can also speed-hatch animals you'd like to deploy into your forest anyway. That's a "more positive" way to gem-push you over the border instead of simply buying the last animal. But... if you're only 89 Sweaters off you may want to consider buying the animal. The gem price for it would be really small then, and worth it IMO.
