Well, I'm not talking about the news. No way no how. So instead, let's talk about Wintersday, which is the GuildWars version of the holidays. GW2's Wintersday just started today, but I have a million screenshots (ok, maybe not quite a million) from old GuildWars and I loved Wintersday there, so I thought I'd post some of those.

This is Old Ascalon, I believe, and this is my dervish, Sharzad:

Here's my ranger Mila in Lion's Arch (note the carolers in the background):

(I don't know how well you can read that text, but Dwayna is the lightbringer, see, thus the carols are about her.)



More candy canes, in the Nightfall town of Kamadan:

I don't know what GW2 will do, but the old version gave special hats at Wintersday, and there were candy cane weapons you could collect - here's one of each:
Sarita with jester hat and candy cane wand
Since it looks like just a big candy cane stick, I imagine it was a wand. The most useful one was actually the candy cane bow. (The outfit was just the regular elementalist outfit dyed red - I've already started doing holiday colors with my new characters, too.)

another hat - a St. Lucia crown!
Gia the ritualist (with St Lucia crown)
(it looks like I had one for everybody, looking at the little portraits at the bottom)

Kamadan again:

And the reindeer quest! I almost forgot that one!
 Not-so-tiny reindeer 
(I loved the series of reindeer quests so much I was still going back and doing them last year.)
