Minecraft Christmas Update Spotted in Snapshot

Posted on December 17, 2012 AT 03:17am

The PC version of Minecraft is set to get a nice festive update once December 25 rolls around, according to the latest snapshot.

A Reddit user noticed a special Christmas skin for chests in the latest snapshot which turns them into red and green wrapped presents. According to the thread, all chests will automatically switch to the skin once your computer clock reaches December 25–you can move it forward ahead of time to get a sneak peek.

It’s unknown if the Xbox 360 version of the game will be getting a similar update.
