The Holiday Party 2009, also known as the Christmas Party 2009, was the 2009 incarnation of Club Penguin's annual Christmas celebration. It began on December 18, 2009 and ended on December 29, 2009. A sleigh ride was instated for members only during this party. Rockhopper returned with Coins for Change 2009, and Aunt Arctic appeared during the last half of the party. The Santa Hat returned as well. This party was supposed to end on December 27, but was extended.

Before the party, there was construction at the Town and the Night Club. One could see the Launch Pad from the Night Club Rooftop on a crane. It was the first Christmas party to formally be known as a Holiday Party.

The Sneak Peek of the Party. This was later learned to be in in the Coffee Shop.

Magic Sleigh Ride

One aspect of this party was that there was a party room called the "Sleigh Adventure", accessible to members only and located on the Night Club Rooftop. It took members on an "adventure" around Club Penguin to help deliver presents by dropping them into chimneys. A sneak peek of it was released as a login screen.

Gifts

The Christmas Party offered "gifts" for penguins. One delivered, the Mystery Present. It was unwrapped on Christmas Day and was touted as a big surprise. Gifts were also delivered courtesy of the Sleigh Adventure, as implied by the What's New Blog. It was also possible to send gift postcards via Penguin Mail to both members and non-members.

Trivia

  • There was a glitch with the Magic Sleigh Adventure. When it was loading it would say "Loading Maze". This was because the last members-only party room was the Great Snow Maze during the Winter Party 2009.
  • This was the first party in Club Penguin that used the term "Holiday" in place of "Christmas" due to many players having "different kinds of celebrations" (e.g. Hanukkah).[1] Some players disliked the name change, including Christians who thought Club Penguin was censoring Christmas in the name of political correctness. [citation needed]
  • Rockhopper said that Yarr decorated The Migrator.
  • This was the 2nd and last time the PSA Headquarters was decorated during a party.
