Seasonal Freebies are one's that come out during certain holidays, most notably and popular being Halloween and Christmas. Renderosity only has their freebies up for that particular holiday only, with perhaps a week or so later for some who didn't quite get them all. Daz and RuntimeDNA have their seasonal freebies up permanently, though over time some links die off or someone making an offer will stipulate it's for a limited time only. It pays to check the links provide for these regularly as they are rarely offered all at once, thereby ensuring you will keep coming back and hopefully check out the items for sale and make purchases. In almost all cases, these downloads are not part of your account history and as such will not be available later to redownload.

One way of finding the available freebies during seasonal times is to read the threads at places like Daz, PFD and Renderosity, as the members there will post links to these freebies for others to get them. There are many sites who are quite generous during Christmas and Halloween, as well as small gifts at other times, so please check the links of the various places that I have listed

Daz has what they call the Ghost of Christmas Past. It's links to the past Christmas freebies for those who may have missed it. The link below is to the Daz forum thread that links the past freebies. Since Daz has opened their new site and also now have new partners, getting past freebies has become a mute point to them. You can still check to see if links work and some still do, however, only the most recent holiday freebies have all links are available at this time

Daz - the company - also offers some of their merchandise for freebies during the holidays that will be part of your account and be able to download more then once.

RuntimeDNA has seasonal freebies that can also be accessed long after the holidays. Like Daz, some of these links are dead, though they make every effort to try and get them back up for you. They are well known for their Cranksville collection that started as a Christmas giveaway theme and has grown with addons since then.

You can find both the freebies at this link...

Renderosity has their own holiday freebie events as well, though in this case they do not retain them permanently, you will need to check it frequently to make sure you don't miss anything. In some cases they become part of you account, depending on how they set it up each time, in which case you have a limited number of times you can download them again, this does not happen often though. Also the past two years, they put up all links for people to get till New Years or even up to two weeks into the new year for those that missed it the first time around.

You will need to have the newsletter, as well as checking other sites where people will tell you what is happening and when.
