The Winter 2016 Event was the sixth major event of 2016, the fifth Christmas Event and the 24th major event overall. It was released on December 6, 2016, and ended on December 30, 2016.

Unlike most recent major events, it was divided in 2 acts:

On December 13, Gil offered a new deal, the Pagan Simpsons Promo for 170 donuts.

Springfield Henge Edit

During the whole event, you can send Springfielders to work at Cletus's Farm, Willie's Shack, Springfield Library and Moe's Tavern to earn offerings you exchange at the Springfield Henge in exchange for gifts from the gods.

In addition there will spawn random Pagans in your town. When tapped, these characters will disappear and drop antlers and rune stones.

The currency for the event is Antlers, Runestones, Catnip and Figurines. Antlers is the prize currency for unlocking the Act 1 Prizes. While Runestones is the main crafting currency. Both Catnip and Figurines can be obtained by sending springfielders to work, and can later be exchanged for Antlers and Runestones and other prizes.

Gnome box Edit

Gnome In Your Home

The gnome will leave his box every 4 hours and run around your town. This mini game let you tap the gnome for a short duration of time, to gather loot that can be used in exchange for gifts or upgrade the actual gnome box.

The Gnome box has 15 levels you can upgrade to get more loots for each mini game.

You can also capture a neighbor's gnome, but this is limited to one neighbor per day (resets at 8 AM GMT).
