圣诞节 is a 季节性事件 that occurs between December 15th (December 1st on the 移动 and 3DS版s) and 31st. During Christmas, 礼物s can be dropped by any 敌怪 (1 in 13 chance, or about 7.7%), except for enemies spawned by 雕像s. 心s are also replaced by 糖棒s, and 魔力星s are replaced with 蜜糖李s.
During 困难模式, one of the items a present can contain is the 水晶雪球, which summons the 雪人军团. Defeating it enables the 圣诞老人 NPC, which spawns if valid housing is available, but only during the Christmas season.

- Christmas can be "activated" by setting your computer's date to a day between December 15th and 31st, and on the 主机版, disconnecting from Xbox Live/PSN and changing the console time. On mobile you should disconnect from automatic date/time updates, and set the time to any day in December, however this does not work for some devices, and for the 3DS version, go to System Settings and set the date there. However, if you wish to not change your device's time to avoid messing up scheduled programs, you can use applications such as RunAsDate to launch Terraria with a changed time/date.
- The event has been updated, featuring several new items.
- One single present item drops instead of three different colors.
