Greevils stole all presents from the residents and dragged them to their dimension. Residents tried to catch greevils with many unusual traps, but they were smarter and managed to escape. And just now, while the portals are unstable, it is possible to return the Frostivus to inhabitants of the island, taking away gifts from greevils and returning them to the shopkeepers.
