The Rules

The prizes for this event are largely found in chests.  There are a few exceptions for this and they will be marked with hints.  
  1. Please to not grief/pilfer the creations.
  2. Follow rules posted on signs.
  3. Have fun and enjoy!
The When

Today's event will start at different times for different groups.  I have done this because of the ~8 hour difference between the US and Europe.  This is still quite fair if you consider the times.  Its not fair to others if they have to start at midnight. 
United States: 
3:00PM PST (-8)
4:00PM GMT (-7)
5:00PM CST (-6)
6:00PM EST (-5)
12:00AM GMT (0)
8:00PM GMT (0)
9:00PM CET (+1)
10:00PM EET (+2)

The How and Where

There are two portals hidden in the world. The "easy" one is is near the spawn and the other is in the worldly antithesis of winter.

Come Prepared!  You may want to bring a bed and materials for a house during your stay.

Christmas Tokens:

Here is a Christmas-themed texture pack I've tailored just for this event's Christmas tokens.  
You will find hundreds of tokens hidden about the world.  With my texture pack, they will appear Christmasy.  Without it they will look like little gray squares.  Either way, you will be able to trade these tokens in for prizes once I've created a barter shop that accepts them (Tomorrow).

Here is a high-definition pack, that makes the toy shop look spiffy. No spiffy tokens though.

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
