A dwarf celebrating Goblin Christmas (and getting those last-minute presents), drawn in crayon by Bay 12 Games.

Goblin Christmas (sometimes also Elf Christmas, but only if your dwarves have been very good) is the wonderful time of year when "A vile force of darkness has arrived and is unloading its goods!". All the good little dwarves stay underground while Goblin Claus leaves his treats in the trap-lined entrance to the fortress.

In the morning, when the all-clear is sounded, everyone rushes to the entryway, and gathers up the Goblinite for melting and the silk socks for decorating the magma fireplace.

Don't be like the bad dwarves, who peek at their presents too early or leave the doors open for Goblin Claus to get in. Bad things happen to those dwarves.

Recently, Goblin Claus has returned to the tradition of the days of yore, sending his helpers and making Goblin Christmas much more Fun. In rare occasions, Goblin Claus himself has been reported to make a personal appearance.

Human Christmas can also happen, but because of the more advanced nature of the Humanite it is often advised to take great care in receiving gifts from Human Santa.
