Template:Epic Infobox LevelThe Holidays are Coming! is an annual mini-campaign style event in Angry Birds Epic. As with most campaign events, this event offers a select normal or elite class as its main reward. For the past three years, this event aired in late December around Christmas, with some variability. In December 2015, the Frost Savage, a class for Bomb, was offered for free if all required materials were collected from battles in the campaign, and was again offered in December 2016. If the player had obtained the normal Frost Savage class prior to the event, they would receive the Elite version instead. All battles require 5 stamina, while the Golden Cloud Castle, an optional dungeon that is unlocked with a certain amount of star collection, requires 15 stamina and can be played once every 24 hours.


The 2016 event features 2 mini-bosses and 1 boss (Frost Hog, Antler Pig, and Santa Pig) which the player is required to defeat to advance to The Holidays Are Coming! - 11, The Holidays Are Coming! - 25, and the Golden Cloud Castle, respectively.

Gift Boxes

A gift box

In previous versions of the event, Gift Boxes were placed in random locations around Piggy Island. However, this was discontinued. The Gift Boxes rewarded the player with a small number of event medals, Snoutlings, and occasionally another item.


Difficulty varies with each battle. If the player taps and holds on the level indicator, the level information will categorize the battle into one of three categories: weak, common, or strong pigs. In the 2016 event, 14 levels were classified as weak and common, respectively, while 4 levels were classified as strong. The main boss and final level, Santa Pig, was classified as a common level.


All of the ice/snow pigs can be in the battle with some new pigs as shown below:

  • The event was supposed to end on December 27, 2014, but it ended on Christmas Day due to server issues on Christmas (the game crashes and the event leaderboard resets to zero every time a player exited the game or when the game exits automatically). There was only one user named 'UnnamedPlayer' in the leaderboard who got the first prize (and the only player to get a prize) because there was no one else in the leaderboard. Many users were very upset that they did not get any rewards from this event. Rovio later sent 60 Lucky Coin to players as compensation for the holiday issues.
