Angry Birds Seasons updates for 2012 Holiday season

It's December 1, which means the new Angry Birds Seasons update is out with a new level every day until Christmas Day -- like an advent calendar.

It's a snowy winter night, the northern lights are ablaze, and it seems like peace on earth… until the bad piggies show up! The Angry Birds didn't realize that they're walking in a winter wonderham!

The 25 new levels will take place in a snowy winter landscape under the aurora borealis and there is also a new ice element that will surely make you slip and slide. In addition to the 25 levels in the advent calendar, there are also three secret levels that can be unlocked for some special wintry treats. Lastly, there is a special Harbin level in honor of the upcoming Angry Birds area in the Ice and Snow World in Harbin, China.

It's important to note that in order to access each new daily level, you need to have an internet connection enabled.

We are receiving many reports of the new update only causing the game to crash at launch. I am not experiencing this issue on my iPad 3, so it isn't affecting everyone. If you've updated to the latest version of Angry Birds Seasons and are experiencing constant crashing, please let us know in the comments below as well as which device you are using to play.

If the game is running great for you, let us know what you think! Personally, I love the advent calendar style of Angry Birds Seasons because I'm not tempted to advance to the next level and instead take time to get three stars on them all. Now excuse me while I continue playing the first level as I have only earned 2 stars so far.
