Lake: Season's Greetings fully embraces the cozy nature of the full game, and we loved it for this.

Lake: Season's Greetings is a wonderful holiday treat that will get anyone in the mood for the season even if it is a little repetitive.
Season's Greetings' monotonous delivery-sim structure, inconsequential narrative, & rough technical audio errors are the chief reasons why anyone's enthusiasm would be frostbitten by the end.
All in all, Lake: Season’s Greetings is a solid choice of prequel DLC that takes everything I enjoyed in the base games and gives me more of it. I found the new characters entertaining while enjoying learning more about the characters I came to know from the original game. But mostly, the short runtime does the DLC a solid by not making your time in Providence Oaks feel like a slog. As I mentioned earlier, if you enjoyed the original Lake, you’ll undoubtedly get some warm and fuzzy feelings playing Season’s Greetings. If you want that nice and cozy experience, do what I did: grab some fuzzy socks, a mug filled with hot cocoa, and deliver some mail. The only way the experience would have been better is if snow was falling outside my own window.
Lake: Season’s Greetings adds a festive twist to the wonderful gameplay loop of the base game, and somehow, it makes it even better to play. I loved seeing Providence Oaks covered in snow and Christmas decorations, whilst getting to experience the town and its inhabitants from Thomas’ perspective felt refreshing – even if the narrative didn’t feel quite as impactful as the first game. It just felt great to be able to return to Providence Oaks and experience the joys of the town once more. And when you add Christmas to the mix? It just feels really special. If you enjoyed the game the first time around, you’re in for a real treat with Lake: Season’s Greetings.
Lake – Season’s Greetings DLC came out at a perfect time for me. Not only that, but it is entirely worth the wait. It is a beautiful, well-crafted addition to an already great game. I hope this is not the last DLC we see for Lake.
