IMC (Korea) has impeded Christmas event from Dec 06, 2012 to Jan 10, 2013. Santa Nunez is in Coimbra Nimrod Bridge, along with a huge Christmas Tree. As expected, the event is being exported to other regions. See the actual event page at 그라나도 에스파다 - 크리스마스 선물 이벤트, and event notice at [이벤트] 크리스마스 선물 이벤트 오픈.
1. Collect Christmas Coin!
Hunt monsters in any map for Christmas Coins. Trade the coins to Santa Nunez for Shabby Christmas Gift Box (20 Christmas Coins), Ordinary Christmas Gift Box (30 Christmas Coins), or Luxury Christmas Gift Box (40 Christmas Coins).
Open the box for Snowman (ATK Speed +10%), Christmas Tree (ATK +15%), or random cash items (e.g. Soul Crystal, Boost Potion, Principal Ampule). Luxury Christmas Gift Box can drop Event Enhanced Enchant Tranquilizer (aka Event Enhanced Enchant Sedative). The other items should be identifiable from the icons in the picture below. See here if you really need a list.
Alternatively, you can drop a box on the Christmas Tree to get 10/20/30% EXP buff for 12 hours, depending on which box is used.

The Christmas Coin shop for Japan servers is actually much better than those of other servers. The shop included other stuffs - White Christmas Costume (300 coins), Christmas Fantasy (rod costume for 500 coins), Christmas Rocket (back costume for 500 coins), and Crystal Rudolph (face costume for F/Ele for 500 coins).
