During certain events, the game would apply cosmetic changes to game. Well, it's hard to explain, but examples should clear everything up.

So, on 24.12-31.12(or even entire December) the game would render a santa hat on every player, every monster, and on everything (even trees).
At April 20th (Weed Smoking Day), wheat would be replaced with weed. (I do not smoke weed, nor support that kind of behavior. I do find that celebration to be pretty comical, and thus, on that certain day, it would be acceptable).
On Halloween, changing things to look more spooky, maybe dressing up monsters into costumes (not something special, so it's more funny, and you can still recognise the original monster, for example bats with white cushion being ghosts).
There are many celebrations, like Valentines, Easter, Summer, so it might turn out to be pretty good.

How can this work? Well, it could be the game checking server date, or client date (so if you change your date to Christmas, you would get hats).

It's always fun to throw a festive gesture into any game around the holidays. I believe it should be thought about during the later stages of game development.

I also must agree with Etxrase & Davegrohlsh.
It is a cosmetic touch that never hurts a game, though there are much more important things to take care of in the Alpha stage of a game.

Though when the full game is released, I fully expect something holiday related to happen occasionally.
