Christmas Wreaths are a currency required for purchasing most Christmas/winter themed cosmetics sold in the shop. Additionally, they are one of 2 seasonal currencies and are unique in that they are stored in the user's Steam Inventory. This currency has no maximum cap.
Christmas Wreaths can only be acquired during a Christmas-themed event which will generally take place from mid-December to early January of any given year. After any online game in the designated event mode, (the player can be alone or with others in this specific case), the player will receive a varying amount of Christmas Wreaths; usually around 50 or more depending on their placing during the match.
Although it is a Steam item, players cannot trade or sell Christmas Wreaths with other players.
- The Christmas Wreaths currency replaced the original Candy Canes currency which served as the primary Christmas currency from December 16, 2016 to January 4th, 2019. It is speculated that the currency was removed to both introduce the game to the steam inventory and as a result of most older players possessing 9999 of the currency, which would have rendered new cosmetics too easy to unlock.
- After their original introduction in December of 2018, all Christmas Wreaths were later converted to oranges at the beginning of February in 2019, at a ratio of 1 Orange to 1 Wreath. The same did not occur in February of 2020 after the 2019 Christmas event, in which Wreaths instead became hidden in-game but remained usable and in the Steam Inventory.
- There was a short period in 2019 during which Christmas Wreaths could be earned outside of a Christmas Event (December 20 to December 31). This is due to how the 2019 Christmas Event only lasted a short time, and ended before December was over.
