A great write-up from GW2Hub/Ten Ton Hammer

Quote

Starting December 14th as soon as the patch goes live, and running throughout the duration of the holiday event, players will be able to participate in three different events based in Lion’s Arch. For the holiday, the Mystic Forge has been transformed into a giant snow globe, and by speaking with a nearby NPC, players can teleport into the snow globe and compete in various games.

What they don't say in this article that they did say in massively's is that there will be three paths you can take, and each will be a bit wide. So it's not going to be an asuran jumping hell, and you can take a different path from the rest of thr group you're dropped in with

Its not hard to jump onto platforms even when you cant even see your character, just watch the camera.

In addition to potentially fatal falling presents, they are blowing the doors open on crafting by adding 275 new crafting recipes to the game for the event. It sounds like these will all be temporary recipes, so stock up on any crafting mats you can find now. There are no new resource nodes in the game (ala Candy Corn), so it sounds like these recipes will use existing materials (and possible toy parts).
...What, why...

I really hope they're wrong in speculating that the 275 new recipes will be short term. Also extremely bizarre that there will be no new crafting materials for the Wintersday event. Logically, that is unsound and makes little sense.

I did the Mad king tower with an asura, the jumping puzzle was easy, the challenge was to make the first half blind folded, because of all ugly bam bam norns and hairy charrs, they always falled after the second heavy jump anyway..dunno why they were trying again and again :D
