Habbox Christmasoke, HabboxFactor and Xmas Factor are all names for HabboxLive's Christmas Karaoke competitions. Although the event has appeared under different names it always occurs in December during Habbox's Christmas event and involves users submitting songs of themselves singing Christmas karaoke songs with a radio show hosted by HabboxLive staff.

It first took place in 2006 under the name HabboxFactor and was organised by Adzeh and Uwe. The event is similar to HabboxStarz which also requires members entering via submission of a song they have sung; however, the Christmas version offers different prizes.

The original prizes were as follows:

  • 1st Place: 6 months Forum VIP colour of your choice, 35 Habbo Credits, and two HC Sofas.
  • 2nd Place: 3 months Forum VIP colour of your choice and one HC Sofa.
  • 3rd Place: 1 months Forum Prize Winner subscription.
