All limited time content for Holidays 2022 is accessible in restaurants with the North Pole Setting, chosen in the Headquarters.
Every North Pole floorplan consists of a separate dining area and kitchen area, divided by a snowy corridor which customers cannot cross.

The North Pole also introduces Elf Houses (located on either side of the restaurant) which automatically perform various actions for players. There are three input and three output Houses, determined by the direction of the adjacent Grabber. Each input is linked to the same output throughout the run, chosen randomly upon starting the restaurant.
In order to use the Houses, players may either manually place items onto an input Grabber, or move an Appliance or Ingredient Provider in front of the Grabber during the Preparation Phase. It will then automatically transfer items or ingredients to the House.
Elf Houses can Chop, Cook, and Knead items, as well as Fill Coffee and Clean plates, each at 5x speed. They do not Portion or Discard. Upon receiving an item, a House will perform all possible actions on it in turn. The completed item is then teleported its corresponding output House, where it will appear on the Grabber.
For items which can be prepared in multiple ways, the House prioritizes over , and over , which is relevant to the following ingredients:
However, Elf Houses will also perform each sequence of steps above, in-order, as many times as possible to take a recipe to its final stage (as seen with Flour above). For instance:
Each Elf House can store a single item at a time. If this space is occupied, the House will not accept new items until the output is cleared, and no items will be voided. Cookable items left in a House (e.g. while the output is blocked) will never burn. If an input House receives an item which cannot be interacted with, it is immediately teleported to the output House.
They also act as Freezers, since any items left on them at the end of the Customer Phase are preserved overnight. Items in Elf Houses are not preserved.
The following Recipes were added for Release 1.1.2, but are not exclusive to the North Pole Setting. Turkey may be selected to start a run in the Headquarters, while all other Recipes are acquired through Cards during the run.
