Mystery Synopsis:

Citizens of Holly Hills: save the date, mark your calendars, and set your alarms– the annual Tacky Sweater Shindig is just around the corner! This charming event will take place in the spectacular Silver Bells Ballroom of the Snowflake Manor. Party guests will mingle in tacky sweater garb with enchanting people, exquisite food, and fabulous entertainment. A night to remember, you will make to die for Christmas memories for years to come!

Dress to impress in your Christmas tacky sweater best! On another note, rumors that some of the townspeople are planning to get revenge on one another this night are entirely false. Everybody will be perfectly safe. At least the Snowflake Manor’s management hope that’s the case. No drama will be tolerated! This is where your story begins.
