The Christmas Party 2008 was a party that took place during December 19–29, 2008. It was one of the biggest parties of the year, as Christmas Parties usually are. The party, in combination with Rockhopper, Coins for Change and the free items, overloaded most servers. It was extended for reasons unknown, just a few days before the celebration. Almost every room was decorated. For example, the Dance Lounge was decorated as Santa's Workshop, and the Dock was turned into an area to ice skate. The Dance Lounge had a picture of the elf of the month and many Members bought the elf hat and all of the elf clothes. The Ice Rink returned for this party and has been around ever since. The Lighthouse had a red bulb just for the party. Even Rockhoppers ship, the Migrator, was decorated. The Mine Shack was turned into a gingerbread house. On the Iceberg, there was a small tree that when clicked, grew larger and larger.

Coins for Change[edit]

During the party, the second Coins for Change program started. Like the first, for donating penguins received a bell. Three collection booths were placed around the island, one at the Plaza, one at the Beach, and one in the Captain's Quarters.

Fun Facts[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • This was the first Party in Club Penguin to decorate the Spy Headquarters.
  • This was the last Christmas Party to use the actual phrase, "Christmas". It was replaced after 2009, with "Holiday", to avoid "offending people who don't celebrate Christmas".
  • The Blizzard snow from the party was stored in the Lodge Attic, cooled by the AC 3000, to be used in the March (It used to say February but it was changed as there was a puffle party in February) Snow Sculpture Snowcase, where it was used at least once to create fan designed ice sculpture.

Glitches[edit]

  • There was a mistake in the Cave. In the Plaza, the Manhole was not removed for the party. However, the Manhole was removed from the Cave, which meant that penguins couldn't go back up the Manhole.
