In my mind there will only ever be one Xmas game that you need  . . . . . . .

Sega also put a Christmas theme into Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast.
On Christmas day, or if you changed the date on the system to Dec.25th, you would get a tree and decorations in the one area. Loved the little touches Sega put into their games.

Christmas Nights really is the business.....the music is spectacular. Yes - of course - it's just a redux of Jingle Bells but it is so well done and for some reason reminds me of Christmas as a child.

A work of genius.

It's not terribly retro - not for a console anyway - but I've made three Christmas games (for PC & Mac)...but I thought I'd mention it anyway. ;)

The Night Before Christmas - http://tardis.dk/wordpress/?page_id=621

They are pretty cool! I had never heard of The Snowman so I just looked up the ZX Spectrum version:

The Snowman (ZX Spectrum)

I have to say that this looks like a really cool game, I will need to try it out on emulation some time!
