My favourite holiday is the "Hallow's End" too.Reasons?I just love pretty much everything about it.The transforming wands for example. I'm personally a HUGE fan of items that transform your character, to look like someone/something else (hence why I have collected a lot of items myself too - like the: "Leyara's Locket", "Darkspear Pride", "Orb of the Sin'dorei", "Frenzyheart Brew", "Stave of Fur and Claw", "Iron Boot Flask", "Kalytha's Haunted Locket" and of course, I also got some stacks of the famous "Noggenfogger Elixir".I know there are more of such items available, but this is just my personal collection so far.And as you can see how glad I am of transforming items, the wands during the "Hallow's End" is just something I adore. (I know other events got such items too, like the winter veil ... but I mean, look at the amount there is during the "Hallow's End" ...)My favourite transform-wand from "Hallow's End" is the Bat one. - It's just so different and funny, and as I play a warrior as my main character, I can even be a bat in combat fights (or well, I can't use spells such like shouts, but I can attack and use abilities that use my weapons (which pretty much is every other ability that I can use when being "silenced")).Also a note to you guys. If you summon a mount at the same time as someone tries to transform you into a Bat, then you will end up being a bat, that's riding the mount you summoned :D. Oh, I just remember the laughs my friends and I had when someone did this to me during a raid.But that is just one reason for why I like this event so much. - Another reason is the headless horseman boss.As I play warrior as main myself and have done so in every expansion. The headless horseman has been a great opportunity to get a plate helmet back in the Burning Crusade, when I still was a noob and never really got the chance to get any decent epic helmet from elsewhere (I didn't have much time to play actively back then).First time I heard about the headless horseman, was (as mentioned) back in TBC (year 2007) during the first "Hallow's End" experience I have ever had. - And certainly it didn't take me long to find out that this boss drops a decent plate helmet.So as I came home during the afternoon of a Wednesday, including pretty much the whole of Thursday (I had free that day), I spent at the entrance of the Scarlet Monastary, hoping to find a group who needed a tank (or dps) and didn't care much for whatever or not I could summon the boss or not. It was tough, but believe it or not, there were a lot of people back then who actually didn't bother much for whatever or not you were able to summon (mainly because the later it became, the more difficult it also became to find someone who could summon).(For those that didn't play WoW back then. Pre-"the dungeon finder", each character could only summon the headless horse man mount, once per day, as well as the loot did all drop from the boss (there was no special bag reward)).And then finally. Friday morning, I saw this helmet drop, and I just felt so excited and relived, like when I first passed my driver license or finished my very last exam in school and you just know, "this is now officially over and accomplished!" (no kidding!).There was no other warrior or paladin in the group (coincidence actually, firstly as I personally never rejected people from joining because of their class, but also because I personally didn't form that group).So people congratulated and I got the helmet.I was seriously so happy (even though the helmet looks stupid on a tauren (in my opinion at least)).I enchanted the helmet right away, as well as gemming it.... And after that ... I went to do the daily quests in Skettis (I farmed rep there for the Nether Ray mounts). But I specifically remember that day, because of the excitement I felt, after having looted the headless horseman helmet! And thereby my first epic helmet I got in TBC as well.I even remember constantly right-clicking on the helmet for the special laugh. - I think I clicked that 500 times, just the first day.As time went and my first experience of the "Hallow's End" was over. The very first thing I remember thinking was that I looked forward to the next year's "Hallow's End".So one year later (2008 aka still in TBC), I heard about this mount that the headless horseman could drop. (The headless horseman mount).Perhaps it did drop this mount the last year too, but I personally first learned about this mount the 2nd Hallow's End I participated in.There was one major factor that made a big difference this year though. As I personally played more WoW at that time, I had some more serious friends in WoW too, so I enjoyed that year's Hallow's End with my friends of course, - where we logged our alts to give each other more summons on the characters we wanted the loot on.So when we one day did the headless horseman, we once saw a drop, that none of us knew anything about (surprising none of us knew about this drop, - we may not have been that clever looking bosses up back then).The boss dropped of course the sword. The one hand sword that summons pumpkins that will assist you.As none of us really needed the sword, we decided to all just need on it for the fun of having a nice vanity-item, and to see what the "use" did (honestly, we didn't know it back then).I surprisingly won the sword :). So equipped it and showed my friends what it did.That year, sadly none of us (my friends or myself) saw the mount drop.So I once again, looked very much forward for the Hallow's End, the next year :)So, one year later (2009 - so 11 months after the release of Wrath of the Lich King). I looked forward for this boss.Part of because of the transforming wands, which I miss every year :)But also because of this mount, that none of us ever saw drop, yet we were so exited about the previous year.So, once again I farm the headless horseman mount, together with my friends (now guildies), where we use alts to increase our chances for our mains.And so it happens. One night where I'm together with my friends (part of the same friends from last year), the mount drops, for the very first time (for us at least).In all excitement, we all need on it. And one of my close friends (a holy priest, which was there with me, the previous year too) won it (that priest was her main too by the way).(I tell you. This was why this girl was being known for having luck with mount drops :) ).I even remember how much she used that headless horseman mount after she achieved it. It was crazy. Every time you saw her coming flying, there was no doubt it was her and not some other guildie, because of this mount. - Even when I saw someone else in a major city with this mount, I firstly thought it was her.But. As I personally didn't get the mount that year. I very much looked forward for the event again next year :).And so it came, year 2010, the year with the introduction of the dungeon finder, and thereby the change through obtaining the mount, the sword and the plate helmet. Where you instead of looting the boss, got those through a bag, you could only obtain once per day.(So no more "cheating" with alts any more.)Anyway, because of this change, it pretty much didn't matter whatever or not you did it with your friends any more anyway (it took 2 mins to clear anyway).So I went in there with all of my characters, every day the event was available (the characters that have the level for it of course).And when the event ended, I ended up achieving 6x headless horseman mounts (spread on 5 characters, so my paladin has 2 -- including one on my beloved main warrior).I gotta admit, that I was really lucky with those mounts that year. I know a lot of friends who never got any headless horseman mount ...So, now. One year later (2011). The event is up again.I admit I don't have the same excitement about this event as I used to have, - mainly because I feel, I have achieved it all already and as they didn't add any particularly new items this year.But still. I missed the wands, like I do every year. - And thereby I missed the use of them during our raids as well. I always find it lots of fun raiding with my friends, joke and transform each other into funny looking creatures/humanoids/undeads etc.But as you may have understood by now. The actual reason for why I love this world event more than any other world event, is because of the experiences and memories I have had from participating in it for all those years. And even though every other world event there is in WoW is fun too, I still believe none of those other events do or will match the funny memories and experiences, I have had so far with the Hallow's End. Which is why, this "Hallow's End" -event, is in my opinion, the best world event, there is in WoW, and I will enjoy the event this year and possibly also next year etc (if I still play by then - which I likely still will do).And for the record. I still keep my plate helm and sword (the very first once I got), for the good memories they give.

My favorite holiday would have to be Hallow's End. Not only do you get to go around to places and get candy, and let's face it; even virtual candy is irresistible. But you also get epic rings, a chance at that awesome helm and a chance at that mount everyone wants! The masks you get are also pretty fun. :) OH and not to mention the wands! Who doesn't want to be a pirate for an hour? Hallow's End has always been my favorite and I always look forward to it every year!
Hallow's End because Halloween is the gay Christmas
My favorite in game holiday would have to be hallow's end--just because the horseman is a fun "villain" to have around and fight...probably the first holiday I really actually bothered getting involved in the events!
Hallow's End is my favorite holiday because of the headless horseman's helm! That maniacal grin. The flaming Ghost Rider-likeness to it! And yet I've never won the damn thing, much less seen it drop. :(
Favorite Holiday gots to be Brewfest, just cause Im Irish.
My favorite holiday is Noblegarden. Love the bunny ears, basket, and bunny rabbit pets you get from it. :)
What is your favorite holiday in World of Warcraft and why?Mine is Hallows End, I love the Trick Or treating, the Ghosts, the Horseman! It all reminds me when I was a kid and going out with my friends. oh so much fun!
Mid-summer Festival.Who doesn't love hosing the opposing factions fires...lol
