The tradition of holiday drops started in October 2001, with the Pumpkin drop for Halloween. On Easter, Halloween and Christmas, items like the Party Hat or Santa Hat would just appear out of nowhere in random places across RuneScape Classic.
In 2003, Jagex decided to make all future holiday items untradeable because of drop-related problems, for example the impact on the game's economy that the discontinued items had, including the Great Party Hat Dupe. The creator of RuneScape Classic lamented this decision in an official website newspost/update but described deciding that ultimately it would be in the best interest of the games community.
