    Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge 2020! As we've done the last 3 years now, we're closing out the year with a bang.

    Like in previous years, every day from December 1st to December 12th we will reveal a new challenge. Each must be completed in order if you intend to complete the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge. You have the entire month of December to complete this. Non-qualifying achievements (meaning ones that don't progress your currently active challenge) do not impact the event. Feel free to continue on in whatever other events you may be participating in without worry.

    Registration is open now, is free, and anyone that completes all twelve challenges by the end of December will receive a new Community Challenge Badge (or an upgrade on the color of their existing one). If you haven't yet registered, feel free to do so here:
    Twelve Days of Christmas 2020

    Event Start and End times:
    Start: December 1st at 10am UTC
    End: January 1st at 1am UTC
    Mind you, time is kept as UTC so adjust for your time zone where appropriate!

    Challenge Reveals:
    For 12 days starting December 1st, a new challenge will be opened at 10am UTC

    Completing Challenges
    Challenges must be completed in order. You cannot complete challenge 5 before challenge 1!

    Online Achievements:
    Only achievements with timestamps that are scanned into TrueAchievements during the event will be valid. Please be aware that using Backwards Compatibility may result in a disconnection from the Xbox 360 service even if still connected to Xbox LIVE. Its suggested that you start a party even if you don't use a mic specifically for the notification it gives when the party chat is disconnected.

    Achievements in apps:
    Achievements in apps will not count towards challenges.

    Unlocking Challenges will not count towards your active challenge. There are very few these days at any rate as it seems they are being phased out.

    Unlocking Invalid Achievements During a Challenge:
    There is no penalty for unlocking achievements that do not count towards your active challenge while working on your challenge.

    Finding Valid Achievements:
    You will find a button below your active challenge on your homepage to go to a list of valid achievements for that challenge in games you've already started. You will also find a button on the hub to go to a list of all valid achievements in all games.

    Done Unlocking Issues:
    Achievements only count when they are scanned into TrueAchievements. Although Done Unlocking seems to be a thing of the past, unfortunately there are still occasions where achievements don't play nice. If they aren't scanned onto TrueAchievements, we have no way to verify the unlock. Thankfully this is behind us for the most part it seems.

    Please feel free to post all questions in the 12 Days of Christmas 4 Discussion.
