"Up on the housetop reindeer paws, out jumps good old COOKIE MONSTER!" No that is not how that song traditionally goes, but that's the way it goes this time! With Christmas just a few weeks away I am hosting a Christmas Forging Challenge! Basically, I want to see what you can do in Halo 4 to make Christmas themes and aesthetics. Obviously, since the RACETRACKS gametype is expensive with shields and vehicles, I don't expect the tracks themselves to be too long. Shoot for at least 30 seconds, but I won't make that a rule. I want these tracks to be fun and exciting and have awesome Christmas colors, decorations, aesthetics, lights, and anything else Christmas related. I don't just want to see a sleigh in the sky or a giant snowman; be creative and original. Also, I don't just want to see a bunch of maps on the 3 forge maps. You can forge these on any track.
- Only one map per person, but submissions can be changed before the deadline
