Ho, ho, ho, and Merry Christmas!
Christmas is a wonderful time of year. If you’re in the north then you get to enjoy snow, hot drinks, the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree. If you’re south of the equator, it means blistering hot weather, beer, and the wonderful colours of decorations and the smell of a freshly-cut Christmas tree.
Christmas is a time for good food, family, and friends. It’s a time for celebration, and Christmas is the time of year where it’s okay to be a kid all over again, and count down the days to gifts and celebrations one day at a time. Each year we get into the spirit of the season ourselves with a countdown of our own; the 24 Games of Christmas!
So please do join in the countdown with us, crack open some great games, and enjoy the season!

Snow is practically synonymous with Christmas, reflecting both Santa’s homeland and seasonal weather in some highly populated areas.
While it’s always a pleasant sight to behold, the ensuing storms, traffic accidents, and hours spent shoveling inevitably put a damper on snow at times. Releasing the Hawaii-themed Pokemon Sun and Moon just before Christmas, though, clearly Nintendo understood the appeal of a resort get-away for when times are rough (
or the marketing team knew it would sell more in November).
Avoiding snow doesn’t mean you need to abandon the Christmas spirit by any means. With 300+ creatures roaming the Alola region, there’s ample reason to trade and battle with your loved ones in the coming weeks. The warmth of family and friends alike will keep you as cozy as a fireplace and some hot cocoa.
