Wintersday is coming...


It's that time of year again... children receiving gifts, the religious among us celebrating the respective feasts, family time, and the Guild Wars Wintersday.  A common Christmas tradition with Arenanet, Wintersday is the neutral feast of the winter and the fights of the gods.  Check out the event page for more information!

Quote

The nights may be long and dark, but Tyrians of all races keep joy alive during the ancient holiday of Wintersday. While each race celebrates Wintersday in their own unique way, children all over Tyria share a common love of one thing: toys.

This year the city of Lion’s Arch will host the asuran Toymaker Tixx as their special Wintersday guest of honor. Before Tixx arrives in Lion’s Arch in his massive airship toy workshop, he’ll visit every major city in Tyria to deliver Wintersday toys and holiday cheer.
