With how good the last Easter and Christmas events were, I'm hoping for a traditional Halloween one again. I'm so over the "Grindscape" events that force you to grind a couple hours per day or just repeat a simplistic task over and over again. Not only are those extremely lazy in terms of development but they're boring and absurd. I can cut a little slack for the less "important" holidays like Valentine's Day and such but not for the traditional "big three". I had a blast with the Easter and Christmas ones last time, as they gave us a fun, festive quest that contributed toward the post-quest rewards which included a gathering point for us to make free XP while encouraging socialization with other players.

Remember last Christmas there was no event. Violet was Blue was not classed as a Christmas event as they didn't want to give out free gifts to everyone. Only those with luck got the Christmas stuff of 2018 or on the Jagex list of getting the nice things <- which I think is a thing.

They may have not called it a "Christmas event", but that's precisely what it was. Plus, like Aslon said, they did hold more traditional Christmas festivities at the GE.

No, it wasn't, there was a big hoo-ha here on the forums about this quest.

We never got Christmas rewards to go with it, with Christmas events you always do <- I believe this is the reason they didn't want to advertise it as a Christmas event - TH makes them money...

There was a Christmas 2018 event. It was held at the Grand Exchange.

Santa was there with his sleigh. You could interact with the sleigh to gain Runecrafting or Summoning XP.

There was also the giant Christmas Cracker to build. While skilling, you earned paper. If you added at least 100 pieces of paper to the current cracker, you could open it once it was completed to gain loot.

^this was our Christmas event, not the quest.
