My favorite event has to be Brewfest, living in Munich I get to see the real thing and the wow version of Oktoberfest is fun to play with some nice games and plenty of beer. Music is pretty cool, events is just fun all round. Nothing beats a day out playing/drinking in OKtoberfest then coming home merry and spending time playing more games based around beer.
Hallow's End all the way. I love the things it represents as a lore fan, and it's also full of candy and costumes! Who doesn't love pelting their raid leader with the "wisp costume" during a raid. :P The forsaken breaking away from the scourge. The Gilneans Throwing troubles away into the wickerman, and such. I also love the Headless horseman lore/reference :) Got to love Halloween
Love is the Air! I love it how they made valentines day into something with chemicals and undead alchemists! It's just like in real life, but people don't notice it yet here!

Feast of Winter Veil is my favorite wow holiday. Gnomes fighting everywhere, flying reindeers in the sky, everyones wearing their santa outfits and best of all you get to open a bunch of presents!
Winter's Veil!The spirit of the Christmas season translates well in-game. It gets me all happy and giddy. One of the few WoW holidays I actually look forward to.
My Favorite Holiday in WoW has to be Children's Week. The overall feel-good emotions emanating from carting around these pesky little orphans( and yes they are slightly annoying when you're doing it 5th year running) is one thing, but I love the fact that there is an event in WoW that has nothing to do with besting monsters/enemies in a raid or a BG. It's all about giving back to the children of the lesser fortunate heroes who did not make it home. After all, we've fought in those wars too, and as a both faction player, I will have caused my share of orphans either side I reckon. It's only fair that I atone for my mindless slaughtering of orcs and humans by taking care of the ones who were left behind. Even if doing so does my nut in because clearly these children have never heard of the sensible logistics approach, meaning that we should go and watch the things you want to see in geographical order(!) rather than back and forth, back and forth, hehe. Oh well, epic flying ftw.
Winter Veil! Snow and presents all around Azeroth!
My favorite would have to be Winter Veil. It captures nicely that child-like feeling of anticipation, seeing all those presents under the tree - I remember one year, I woke up, opened my presents from "Santa" in the living room, and then came back to my room to log on and see what gifts I'd gotten from Greatfather Winter! Plus, it's always been one of the more full-featured holidays (only Hallows' End, I think, comes close). There are other holidays that give better loot, but Winter Veil is the only one that actually evokes emotion.
pirates day so i can speak like a pirate yarr
Feast of Winter Veil. I have wonderful memories from the holiday, from opening presents like I'm 5 and believe in Santa again, to RP feasts with guildies. All the holiday is nothing but joy. It also helps that it is the last holiday I need for the beautiful purple proto. :D
Brewfest hands down. Everyone love brew.But also because I still had Tickets from 2007 sitting in my bank and had a lot of fond memories failing at ram racing. Also 2 mounts (later revisions) and the Remote was tons of fun trying to find silly places to summon it.
I really like Noblegarden just because I have some nostalgic memories of running around Mulgore on Easter trying desperately to find eggs. Brings warm fuzzies to my heart.
I'm a huge fan of Children's Week. The activities are fun, it's nice to bring a child around Azeroth and I think it's a really good way to draw attention to the orphans of the real world.
I'd have to say, Hallows End is my over all favorite holiday in WoW. Reasons? Well, Halloween is my favorite IRL holiday, and with Hallows End, I get to enjoy it for a full month, not just one day of wobbling door to door, drunk, begging for candy in a costume I made out of a t-shirt and markers! Also, it's got the Headless Horseman's Mount, so how could it be any more awesome? I've spent the last I don't even know how many years trying for it and FINALLY got it tonight, to a chorus of "GO DIE!" from the PuG...but I couldn't care less, cause _I_ got it, so nyeah-nyeah!
Pilgrims bounty is my favorite wow holiday because of how quickly a person can power level cooking I plan to take advantage of that to max my alts cooking (all 18 million of them...yeah slight exaggeration there but we'll go with that).
