This weekend the annual href=""> style="font-style: italic;">Guild Wars
Wintersday event kicks off in grand fashion, as developers ArenaNet
have added the Ebon Vanguard's tower in Eye of the North to the list of
locations that will be decorated for the event.  
They've also added some new NPCs, quests and rewards so there should be
plenty of cool things worth checking out for both new and long-time

On behalf of the Ebon Vanguard, I am pleased to
extend our invitation
to this year's Wintersday celebration. Most of the Vanguard is off-duty
to take part in the festivities, so please join us in the Eye of the
North as we relax and make merry. It has fallen to me to make sure
everyone has a proper good time, a duty that I gladly accept. I just
hope no one minds if I have a little fun for myself along the way.

--Lt. Thackeray

The holiday events in Guild Wars have easily been some of my favorites
over the years.  I mean, what's not to love about giant PvP
snowball fights?   Be sure to check out href="">the
full details on the event, which starts on December 19th and
runs through noon on January 5th
