Putting the Warcraft Back into the War Against Christmas

While Fox News is worrying about the "War Against Christmas," the ever embroiled citizens of the World of Warcraft are fighting to ensure a Happy Winter Veil.

Greatfather Winter has gifts in store for those who are willing to bring him Milk and Gingerbread cookies.

Higher level denizens can find and ride a Rudolph-like reindeer.

Have a conversation with a Snowman.

Collect snowballs to throw at your friends.

Buy Holiday gear from Goblins.

Many say that Winter Veil is becoming too commercial, and some speculate that the Goblin salesmen may be Horde infiltrators into Alliance territory. But one thing is certain. Winter Veil only lasts from December 15th through January 2nd and while it is going on, new players can join the World of Warcraft for only $19.99. I have to admit that I had my reservations about WoW, but once I started playing I dropped my other MMORPGs almost entirely. This is a fun game, and the seasonal event displays some of its glory.

So come join me, Faldir, over on the Malfurion server for some good times this Winter Veil season.
