Christmas is an annual event on the Mindcrack Server and has been celebrated since 2010.

Christmas 2010[edit]

The first Christmas was celebrated by Alcimedes, Guude, and madcow21. The three built and decorated a tree using spawned items. The entire tree was rigged with TNT and lava, and was exploded several times (using backups of the map) in the attempt to achieve the intended result. The materials that were spawned in were destroyed.[1]

Christmas 2011[edit]

VintageBeef and W92Baj built a large tree in the spawn village. It was decorated with additional ornaments provided by adlingtont.[2] Pakratt0013 added a train around the base and made snow golems to carpet the area in snow.[3] Arkas built a large Santa statue on a hill overlooking the tree. VintageBeef, Baj, and Pakratt0013 left presents for everyone under the tree, and asked that they record themselves opening it, if they made videos. Guude also left everyone a diamond block at their house.[4]

Christmas Gifts[edit]

*Etho and Mhykol didn't open their presents at spawn; so their gifts were relocated to their homes when the ornaments and wrappings were removed from the Christmas tree.

Christmas 2012[edit]

generikb added redstone lamps[7] to the previous years Christmas tree in spawn village, with W92Baj and VintageBeef redecorating the tree.[8] BlameTC built a second tree on his plot in town[9]. paulsoaresjr built a tree inviting users to pick any one of the presents on the tree. Many presents took advantage of the new feature that allows players to use an anvil to name any item in the game.

Christmas Gifts[edit]

Christmas 2013[edit]

AnderZEL built a Christmas tree next to the town hall and decorated it with redstone lights and coloured wools. generikb added donkeys and VintageBeef added chickens to the tree. paulsoaresjr also had separate presents on his own with quirky names embedded to every present.

Christmas 2015[edit]

Secret Santa.png

To celebrate Christmas in 2015, 18 Mindcrackers exchanged gifts anonymously in the "Secret Santa" format.[12] The gift givers remained unnamed until 25 December,[13] which lead to the creation of a guessing competition held on /r/mindcrack.[14]

Chad mentioned during a livestream with Pause on 11 December that European residents were paired with other European residents, and North American residents with other North American residents.[15] Avidya revealed in his video that there was a $50 price limit on gifts, which had seemed to been ignored by some.[16] Seth linked a Straw Poll in the description of his video listing 19 possible gift givers.[17] Millbee, Nebris, SuperMCGamer, and Zisteau were not included in the poll; Sevadus and Vechs were included, but weren't participants in the Secret Santa. AnderZEL's gift did not arrive in time for him to open it before Christmas.[18]

The gift givers were revealed on 25 December in a video uploaded to the Mindcrack Network YouTube channel, entitled "Mindcrack Secret Santa: The Reveal!" . Aureylian, Docm, and Avidya had successfully guessed their Secret Santas during their videos. Docm's Santa, AnderZEL, was the most common correct guess in the subreddit guessing competition.[19] Chad's gift for Coe was highly commended for its rarity and ability to appeal to Coe's interest in retro video game consoles.
