Angry Birds Seasons: Christmas 3 Star Walkthrough Level 1-20

Our strategy for Season’s Greedings level 1-20 is to lob the Yellow bird nearly straight up, breaking through the snow holding the two stone blocks on the left side. Fire the next Yellow bird low, through the small pig and present, continuing onward to drop the pig on the far right. If the top pig remains, split the Blue bird through the snow blocks supporting it. The score in the video is 49,170.

Note: The video below shows the Santa Hat glitch. This glitch has since been fixed and thus is no longer possible. The trigger was the Santa Hat atop the bottom-left pig. To see which levels have the glitch, we have tagged them.

Nice on hab !!!!
I just 3 starred it with 49,670 on the 8 or 9th attempt, definately the way to go, if the walkthrough is much different I will be surpised, but there is the exploding pig I thought I hit earleir today, so maybe there is a much better way, but yours got me past todays, thanks :)

By Habanero

Cool, pleased it worked for you as well. Yes, I think the santa pig on the right sometimes just goes off randomly!? It went “bang” more recently when I was lining up the bluebird and took out the pig in the right hand tree without me having to fire a 3rd shot… these santa pigs are very helpful :-)


Worked like a charm thanks mate :)
Yep, you are right, santa pig on right of tree one base just went off twice in a row for me, I only had the far right pig left to get with the blues, but failed ! Will be trying again, 49K I think is just squeaking through, not good enough for me just yet ;)


Yep, 49K is skin of the teeth 3 stars, I just got 48K and only got 2 stars, I have work to do, I want to beat it by a bit more than 1K !!


Update on Level 20’s exploding pig.
The pig in the Santa hat to the right of the first tree base explodes !
It just went off long after my bird had finished breaking stuff, nothing touched it so it must have been rolling over prior to going boom ;)

By ERicJ

Level 20: got 54,980 without using the glitch. Similar strategy to this one: Except I chopped the right tree down and it fell over on the left tree with the TNT taking out a lot more snow, and the present.

This walkthrough: shows the glitch works on the left hatted pig as well.

By ERicJ

Up to 57,180 with my strategy.

Tried many times to get left hatted pig to explode by barely tapping him and got just one very weak explosion that knocked the bird backwards but did no tree damage.


I have tried all sorts to “make” it explode, none worked. Its a lucky chance thing I think. Its exploded about 5 times for me now, each time it takes out a lot of the snow, any remaining tree trunk parts, concrete, the pressie and any pigs remaining around it, and it alwasy goes off way after the bird has stopped moving, went off once after the bird had popped.


Just noticed you said “left hatted pig”, its not that one, its the one on the other side of the tree trunk, nearest the pressie, thats the one which has blown up for me a number of times.

Nice Strat. I was able to three star in a very few tries. Thanks.


Habanero is the bomb :)
You were dead right with your strategy posted on 1-19 for 1-20.
I have only managed to just squeak over 50K ( done 50K a couple of times now ) 50,400 is my best so far, but Im still trying !

By Habanero

Cheers TMH :-)
I really like this level… think I’d give level 1-16 my biggest nightmare award! Eggbound white birds … bah! humbug!


Nooooo…. 1-19 was by far the worst for me, it looked quite sensible, until i launched the first bird !
I couldnt get above 1 star without the walkthrough for 1-19. Wouldnt have got 3 stars today if it hadnt been for your tips !!


54,040 now ;)

By labrege

As the levels 7 and 18, there is a hidden bomb in the bottom. I’ve exploded it once, and my score is 59110 with two birds!

By labrege

I’m unable to do it again. Did anybody succeed in finding it?

By Mark

The pig with the hat has an explosive. Be on the lookout. My guess same as 7 and and 18 or 19. Whichever it was.


Ive never managed to hook up a clear run with the bomb going off, every time it has I have messed up the last shot and failed the level, would love to know how much it would add to my 54,040 if I could get it to work and clear the level ! Though there wasnt much left standing except the right tree trunk and the snow on the other side when I got my highest so far.


It was 7 & 18 Mark, 19 was just a “swine” of a level !!

By ~JaiMe~

hehe TMH, i get teh feelin you rly din like this lvl, huh? ;)


Todays level is a good one Jamie, it was thanks to Habanero, for his tip this afternoon, I got the hang of this one and really enjoyed playing it. Its hard, even when you know how to do it, but not so hard I cant even get 1 star ( there have been 2 of those I didint complete at even 1 star before seeing a walkthrough ) today was one of the few times I hooked 3 stars before seeing a walkthrough, there have only been a few, but Im not that into the puzzle figuring out bit, I prefer to hone my targetting skils to the right places, but I always try very hard to at least get one star or better before looking at a walkthrough.

By ~JaiMe~

*i meant ‘that’ lvl, meaning 19 (swine ofa level) :b


Sorry jamie, I just relised it was on the 19ths list :) You were right, I hate 19 !!! ;)

By ~JaiMe~

work lvl 21 yet?? played it couple dozen times already….
moooore explody hatted pigz hehe

got a small boom outta left lil one (but much like you i never managed to finish clearing one those occasions)& saw big one look like it was tryin to go off but just ends up dyin

got 67+ so far without any detonation help :D


Not sure if we should change your name to Jammy ;)
67K without any explosions is a damn good score !
Im still at 75,710 with lvl 21, but Im still playing it just because its a fun level :)
Didnt take me many tries to clear todays for the first time, was gobsmacked when I did and got 3 stars at only 61K !!

Will be very interested to see what the walkthrouygh says to do when it gets posted.


Labrege, its apot luck thing, it doesnt go off every time, but when it does it decimates the left tree and everything on and around it, Ive had it go off numerous times, but not deliberately, if you hit that pig it just dies, it does not explode, you have to kind of miss it but disturb it, like the one in 18 that gets jumped in the air when your bird explodes then goes off as it comes back to the cement shelf.

By ~JaiMe~

w0ot! thought i saw that lil bugger go flyin up & explode! i usually play on the small shrunk-down screen so i can better see angles to aim/strike, & that pig was sooo tiny i wasn’t positive it exploded lol. tried several times to make it go off…i agree, it’s def. a luck thing, never got it to happen again, but only played this lvl for 15 mins so far & got 54,860 w/3 birds :)


I keep picking up my phone and having another go at todays, will not be revisiting yesterdays though ! Hit a glass ceiling here, still no higher than 54,040, though I have got close to that again a giid few times.

By ~JaiMe~

o, i suppose i otta say how i cleared this lvl… i took 1st bird thru tree just below stones. wipe out snow block holding them up; if all goes well, the rocks fall & take out 2 pigs below it & dynamite falls & takes out pig below it. one more to take out more of middle (trunk of tree) or anythin left on that side you didn’t get w/1st bird, giving a cleard shot to other tree. last bird aimed low takes out pig & pkg below tree & pig in other tree. good collateral damage along teh way def. helps. gl, bird on!


Hmmmm the levels just get harder and harder !!
20 is another “Pig” of a level !
Ive managed to clear it, once, but only got one star with a score of 41,720.
Im pretty sure there is a sweet spot in this one again today, as a few times when I didnt clear it there was an explosion in the middle of the first tree that took those pigs and the pressie out, it left the pig in the tree on the right though, so the 42,000 + I score I had on those attempts didnt get me any further towards 3 stars.

By Habanero

Try this TMH
Take the first bird sharply up and down diagonally cutting through the snow just under the two concrete blocks. Takes out 2 pigs on the left and most of the snow.
Then fire second bird through central wooded tree spine, brings down pig on top right and dynamite but most of the left hand side structure now cleared.
Finally fire and split blue bird across to take out 2nd santa pig, the gift and the pig sitting giggling in the right hand tree.

Can get 50K+ and 3 stars this way. I “fluked” a 58K+ with 2 birds but cannot repeat that. Somehow the first bird took out all birds on the left? But I think it was a very lucky shot…

Walkthroughs may show a different strategy, but the above worked for me.

Hi Kathy… Glad that my old SG-20 strat has stood the test of time and given you a cool score… but no idea what I did now for any of these SG levels as soooo long ago… my highlight of SG, the only thing I do remember clearly, was being one of the first few, but not the first, to gain the virtually impossible Eagle feather for SG-16, before Rovio lowered the threshold… this drove a lot of flingers insane but I enjoyed the challenge of removing 99.9% of the board to get the elusive feather.

Thanks for the reply @habanero :)
I’m getting feathers as i go along, i wasn’t able to get 16 yet or 20,, but I will, i wasn’t aware there was a feather for completing 16? I suppose it’s only for IOS? Android didn’t have feather back then, and no GC , even now so any of those awards from Rovio don’t apply, although the bottom of my boards say congratulations for achieving something to do with scoring!
There’s a few of us playing through this episode again to improve , happy you posted your strats n them:)
I’m having a tough time with 22 though:(

Get that “mystery” explosion out of one of the pigs under the left tree is the key. I have mangaed it a couple of times, but have been unable to discover exactly what sets it off. If you can get the explosion the score skyrockets. The first time I found it I threw the second bird a little off line from what I intended and I did not watch it closely. The next thing I know everything is gone and I have a score of 63,020.

By ~JaiMe~

~see my post below about exploding hatted pigs ;)

By ~JaiMe~

well TMH, thats where we differ… i rly like the challenge of figurin out teh puzzle! key for me since my eye/hand coordination has a history of not being vry good, although i have alot less prob. w/ that when sh!t isnt tryin to kill me back lol time to figure out & practice shots is THE only reason im half good @ this game ;)

now, as far as this lvl goes, i have rolled gently into that damn hatted pig bottom left @ least 100 times, and only managed a small insignificant explosion maybe 3 times; one which took out a couple blocks above it, other 2 times only a block. maaaaaaany of those others only a lil tiny boom that just killed that pig, sometimes the hat was still there even. ONE time so far i got sortof an explosion which sent teh bird flying right across bottom wiping out pressie & pigs, whopping 19k points :\ its tricky not to just nail the hatted pig so hard u kill it! but i have seen that pig jiggle round every time before it goes boom… also teh pig always starts to roll sideways & when the hat hits…kablowey! i even saw the pig spin round in its hat 1.5-2 times before just popping, not exploding one time heh this is what i kept seein on other lvls w/ hatted pigs, but also never got a big explosion. so im wonderin if it has todo w/ droid version maybe? anyone else w/ a droid got a big boomy??


I have an iphone and I have had big explosions from the one under the tree, (the one on the right of the first tree trunk, not the one on the left btw) trouble is when I do, I usually screw up the next, or the last bird and dont finish the level !

Very difficult level without the glitch, took me about a half hour before finally getting above average.

1. First bird straight through the snow blocks holding the bottommost pig in the first tree.
2. Second bird through snow block holding the stone. By now, make sure all the pigs near the first tree have been eliminated
3. Here’s the trickiest part. High arc about 30 degrees from the slingshot and split in such a way that all the snow blocks on the first half of the second tree have been destroyed. This makes the TNT tower to topple over to the left and blast the present.

By Birdman

I’m a newbie at this game but found I could do this level with 2 birds and a score of 56970 (giving 3 stars) with the following strategy:
Fire first yellow bird directly at the snow block under the 2 stones in the left hand tree. This drops the top part of the tree and the dynamite takes out the top pig. The stones fall and take out the rest of snow on the left hand side and the bottom left pig. Fire the second yellow bird at the base of the left hand tree taking out the present, the santa pig, and with luck the bird will roll through to the right hand tree and take out the low pig over there. No need to use the blue bird. Score reads 56970.
Hope this may help others.
Cheers, Birdman. Oi!

Thank you Birdman for posting your Alternate Strategy. I was using all the strats posted above and just read yours so was going to give it a try because I could not obtain an average score. My results were a little different because the first YB took out all the pigs in the left tree. Used the second YB to take out the present, the right tree’s pig and topple the right tree. The Blue Bird was a bonus bird.
