UPDATE: Well the mystery is solved… and it’s a rather nice surprise. Though we still think they’re evil for keeping it secret in the first place don’t you? The Farmville North Pole Toy Works will be our Christmas gift feature. We will be able to earn presents by helping Mervin wrap them, along the lines of Hungry Santa. The early gift is most useful of all – a free additional spot for 40 land plots…. There is something mysterious afoot on Farmville’s all new Alpine Jingle farm. The North Pole Toy works – a buildable without parts and with its own expansion. Check out what your Dirt Farmer team has found about this buildable below and let us know your guesses as to what it might be. Please do share….
UPDATE: The FarmVille Studio is reporting that all issues are fixed, and the crafting time for Holiday Wrappers has been reduced to One Minute! Both the Dirt Farmer and the FarmVille Studio recommend doing ALL crafting on Alpine Jingle as the feature is designed for only there and searching in other craft shops may lead to freezing.

UPDATE: While the FarmVille Studio appears to be keeping the rewards for this feature top secret to surprise us Christmas morning, they did confirm that in addition to the FREE 40 plot EXPANSION we get when the feature releases, the presents will contain mostly NEW rewards.

The goal of this feature is to help Mervin wrap Christmas gifts and fill up Santa's bag and earn up to 50 presents. There is no information available yet as to what these presents may contain, but keep checking back with the Dirt Farmer as we will update this post as soon as such information becomes available. You will be able to open all your gifts On December 25th, 2015. The Holiday Wrappers must be crafted in the craft shop. A look at the recipe requirements

You can harvest 1 present every time your wish meter is fully lit from within the feature. Every recipe you craft, every click you get from your friends when you ask for wrappers and every click you give a friend to help them with wrappers will count as one green light on your wish meter. If you prefer to complete this feature using only craftshop recipes, you will need to craft the Holiday Wrappers for a total of 350 times.. For each 7 recipe, your wish meter will be fully lit and will grant you 1 present.
And finally a look at some of the rewards we'll be receiving when we unwrap the presents on December 25th, 2015
