Hello everybody, and welcome back. Today I will have a few things that I will list that would be great as a Christmas Update for the popular PC and Xbox Live game Minecraft.

The first thing that I think should be added is something similar to a beacon. As some of you know, you can put a set of ore blocks down in a specific pattern to activate the beacon. I am thinking that there could be something similar with different wood types and leaves that when put in a certain pattern will glitter, and you can put a few decorations at a set number (say 7 decorations to activate event) and then the tree starts sparkling. Every couple of minutes, a present will appear below the tree. By breaking it, you can get random items.

The next thing I am thinking that would be nice to create is the decorations. For the star, I was thinking perhaps yellow stained glass on top mid, bottom mid, and then on the mid of both the left and right hand sides: X=Nothing G=Glass




Like so. Then in the middle, a Lava Bucket could go in to make the star shine. Or you could have a specific random event where shooting stars could fall, and that could be the star.

For the decorations, for baubles it should be the whole top and bottom row with either red or green stained glass and the middle having an iron ingot in the middle. For other decorations, like tinsel, you could have red dye on top and bottom middle and three string in the middle. Like this: S=String X=Nothing R=Red Dye




I think you should be able to fight a new mob which is only hostile when attacked, like a wolf. It could be a gingerbread man, and by killing them, you get gingerbread man. They could heal 2 hunger slots.

Perhaps you could take that idea, and further it. By placing the gingerbread man in a crafting bench, you could get gingerbread mold, and then by combining three, and a Candy Cane at top left and bottom right, you could create a Gingerbread house. Like so: C=Candy Cane X=Nothing G=Gingerbread Mold




For Candy Canes, I think you could find them by either finding or creating Snow Golems and they drop them every so often. When you kill one, it could inflict Nausea on you or something like that, as a bad omen. This could play in with the Christmas Tree as well, because if you have been bad, the tree might not give you presents.

You could also use the different layers of snow, sticks on each side and three stone buttons and a carrot to create a Snowman. If you click on them with a Candy Cane, it will hold it, and drop double the Candy Canes that the Snow Golem's could.
