Last week, many Facebook users saw a cryptic sponsored post crop up in their News Feed: “Chatting just got more festive! Look out for a treat December 24th-26th.” Now that the day has arrived, we’ve put on our best Sherlock Holmes gear to deduce exactly what was changed or added. Our conclusion?

Now, whenever you open a private message or tap on a Chat Head, some beautiful snowflakes will begin descending around the little circular icon. The snowfall will stop momentarily, but you can trigger a new deluge just by tapping on your chosen Chat Head again.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled just in case Facebook has released any other Christmas-related features on the down low.
