Hey Everyone! I went ahead and made a Wintersday Calendar-Wallpaper, that way it's easy to look up the Times, Dates & Locations for the event. Enjoy! Link: http://i.imgur.com/5Ilty.gif?1  (I also posted this on Reddit: http://redd.it/14nk73)

Why is it a gif?

Did gifs suddenly get more than 256 colors?
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

I prefer GIF over JPG, and PNG over both - But PNG would have been too big of a file.

Thanks for doing this.

In the future I would suggest saving pictures that have a lot of text as PNG files for better legibility. GIF files are best for pictures with least amount of colors or a lot of white.

That's impressive work.  It looks professional to me, not like the hackeyed junk I'd end up making.  =)

Thanks for making this!  

(and yes, GIF is really not optimized for images like this, but since it's super-awesome, it doesn't matter :D )
