According to the information from the Rockstar studio, this DLC could have been downloaded till January 5th, 2015, however, recently, the developers have stated that its duration is extended.

As you surely know, on Christmas Eve and during further several days, the users of PSN and Xbox Live faced some problems in the work of these services.

In three days the connection was restored, but Rockstar has decided to make a compensation to the GTA V players for the lost time and the inconveniences. The studio has written about it in its Twitter account:
Surely, such a move from Rockstar is right. Now, the fans of the popular action-adventure will be able to catch up and enjoy all the holiday bonuses, which the GTA Online update includes, to the full. Let us remind you that the add-on contains the new masks, types of weapon and vehicles, the ability to play snowballs as well as display the fireworks and more.
