Christmas Presents

During a select few days of this event, you have a chance to find a random gift any time you use awake. Although the type of gift received is random, the colors tend to favor areas that are similar to their reward. Meaning that begging gives a higher ratio of purple gifts and training stats favors green gifts. As a bonus to opening ANY color X-Mas Gift, you have a small chance of receiving a food stamp or a Dreidel. While gifts can only be gained in this short time, you can open them any time throughout the year.

Naughty players, aka non-donators, have a chance of receiving coal instead of gifts. Sadly the coal is immediately thrown away, making it worse than useless.
