Introduced in V1.0.1, the 2021 Holiday Event ran from the 23rd to the 30th of December, 2021. It included 13 unique items, and two pets. The rewards are purely flavour items, with no bonuses to the player.

The event consisted of five tasks, each involving the collection of 250 presents for Festive Chio from five different skills: Woodcutting, Fishing, Firemaking, Cooking, and Mining. Completion of each task would unlock a different reward, with completion of all five tasks being required to obtain all available rewards.

Task specific presents can be obtained by performing any action in the relevant skill. The chance per action of obtaining a present for an action taking [math]\displaystyle{ \text{Action Time} }[/math] seconds can be calculated as [math]\displaystyle{ \frac{6 \times \text{Action Time}}{1000} }[/math], or approximately 21.6 presents per hour.

Standard presents can be obtained by performing any action in any other non-Combat skill. The chance of obtaining these presents is three times lower than task specific presents, and can be calculated as [math]\displaystyle{ \frac{6 \times \text{Action Time}}{3000} }[/math], or approximately 7.2 presents per hour.

As the chance of obtaining presents is time normalised, there is no best action for obtaining presents for most skills. Exceptions to this are for Mining, where choosing a rock with a shorter respawn time (such as Rune Essence) will increase the chance over time by reducing time spent waiting rather than mining, and for Thieving where choosing a target with 100% success rate will never leave you waiting for the stun to wear off; presents are only dropped while performing an action. It is also worth noting that because presents are dropped relative to an action's interval after bonuses rather than its base action interval, effects that decrease an action's interval such as God Upgrades cannot increase present drops over time by performing the action quicker than normal. In addition, present drops cannot be doubled.
