I went to play some Minecraft and noticed my vanilla chests are looking quite festive today:

enter image description here

The single chests are red, double chests green.

I ran around for a bit but didn't notice any other differences. What other changes can I expect for Christmas?

  • I think the chests get the makeover every year but not certain. AFAIK it's the only change.

The only changes that Mojang implemented this year was the changing of the texture for the chests. They did the exact same thing last year as well.


Also if you name a sheep egg jeb_ OR use a nametag and name the sheep jeb_ it makes the sheep rainbow!

    This is an easter egg, but it is not a Christmas easter egg, seeing that it can happen year round.
