While most of us have plenty to do in the real world leading up to the Christmas holiday, if you choose to spare a few minutes on FarmVille in the next few days, you'll find that a new series of goals - the Christmas Sweater goals - are now available for you to complete. According to FarmVilleFreak, this goal series is nine parts long, and it rewards you with some animals wearing sweaters, a sweater tree and even some buildings and decorations. Let's get started.
On A Crisp December Day
Get 3 Rabbit Ear Warmers
Harvest 50 Vegetable Crops
Harvest 150 Strawberries
Strawberries take four hours to grow, while the quickest vegetable takes eight hours. The Rabbit Ear Warmers, along with all other "get" tasks in this goal series are earned by asking your friends to send them to you. Your reward? 100 XP, a Sweater Tree and 2,500 coins.
Get 6 Pig Tail Covers
Harvest Sweater Tree
Harvest 150 Pumpkins
Traditional Pumpkin takes eight hours to grow. For finishing this goal, you'll receive 200 XP, a Sweater Penguin and 2,500 coins.
How to Dress a Tree
Get 6 Duck Beanies
Harvest Sweater Penguin
Harvest 150 Peanuts
Peanuts take 16 hours to grow, so plan your planting accordingly. After finishing this goal, you'll be rewarded with 300 XP, a Ski Duck and 2,500 coins.
Get 6 Hoof Warmers
Harvest Livestock Pen
Harvest 150 Wheat
Wheat takes 12 hours to grow. For finishing this goal, you'll receive 500 XP, a Sweater Sheep and 2,500 coins.
Get 6 Cow Sweaters
Harvest Cow Pasture
Harvest 150 Spinach
Spinach has a growth time of 14 hours. As with other crop tasks, you'll want to plan ahead on this one if you can. That is, if you finish the Wheat requirement in the goal above before the other two tasks, you can immediately plant the Spinach so you won't have to wait so long once you do start on this particular goal. When you finish, you'll receive 750 XP, a Sweater Cow and 2,500 coins.
Get 6 Horse Rugs
Harvest Sweater Cow Twice

Harvest 600 Strawberries
Your reward? 1,000 XP, a Frozen Autumn Pond and 6,000 coins.
