For the series as a whole, the playlist rewards are the Gingerbread Outfit for 120 playlist points and the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ for 200 points. Both are also exclusive rewards, so you’ll want to grab these!
The Horizon Secret Santa is also ongoing. Keep sending gifts to unlock the Santa outfit and perhaps the Peel P50!
This week the Forzathon weekly challenge is Game Changing. We'll be driving the 2009 Ferrari 458 Italia! Earn 5 playlist points for completion as well as 80 Forzathon points. These Forzathon points can be doubled if you buy the right house!

The Horizon Arcade Mini Games earn playlist points as usual. The Trial, Santamental Feelings, has the 1995 Nissan GT-R as its prize. You need to be in the Hall of Fame to enter the trial.
Jungle Bells is the name of this week's Playground Games and you can win the #34 Volkswagen Beetle. There's also the Horizon Tour co-op championships as ever.
This season's PR Stunts are the Base Jump danger sign, the Barranco Trail Blazer and the Bulevar Speed Trap. As with all the seasonal PR Stunts in Forza Horizon 5, you’ll need to check that your car is eligible and in the right class. The menu button in the Festival Playlist gives you the car restrictions! Each one earns you a wheelspin.
The seasonal championships are Feliz Navidad, with the Hoonigan Escort as the prize, Oh, Deer with the Raindeer Antlers reward, and the '20 Supra GR Championship which gives you the Toyota Race Suit.
The latter will be a nice chance to use one of the starter cars again!
There's a photo challenge this week: #snowgiant. Photograph any vehicle at the top of La Gran Caldera, the volcano. You'll earn the "Ho ho ho!" Forza Link phrase.
The Horizon Open "People Person" has a 25,000 credit reward. The Eliminator has another Forza Link phrase "Happy holidays!" as its prize. Lastly, there's a collectibles challenge. Knock over sufficient gift boxes to earn the Merry Christmas car horn.
