You just can’t have a great Tyrian holiday without the ancient Wintersday event. This holiday is scheduled for December 14th and will continue until January 3rd.
The official announcement for the Wintersday event:
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 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.
In the gallery below you can find some breathtaking screenshots. I truly hope that ArenaNet learned a few lessons from the previous events, which means the players will be able to enjoy the event without lags, disconnections and unnecessary in-game bugs.
