The 2004 Christmas event was released on 21 December 2004 and was removed two weeks later. This was the only holiday event that year and marked the first year in which no tradeable christmas items were dropped.
Obtaining the Holiday Item[edit | edit source]
Players could visit Father Christmas who was found in several cities including Varrock, Falador, Ardougne, Catherby, and Yanille. When players talked to him and asked for a present, he would give a Yo-yo. Santa only gave one to each player.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
For completing the 2004 Christmas holiday event, players were rewarded with a Yo-yo. This item is non-tradeable. If a player destroys or loses this item, they can get replacements from Diango in Draynor Village Marketplace.
Controversies[edit | edit source]
Many players were disappointed because the new Christmas holiday item was untradeable. The decision to disallow trading of the item was to prevent the high pricing of it in the future. Some attempted to make the Yo-yo tradeable, along with the Scythe, but this led to problems, as only a few players had managed to find a way to duplicate these items, which included Partyhats. Jagex discouraged the selling of rare holiday items from the start, stating when referring to Santa hats: "Of course you can sell them, but that wouldn't be the spirit of Christmas."
