Hallow's end, just because of the stink bomb run.
Hallow's End is my favourite holiday. It was the first time i went for a title from a holiday in the game. It's also the best holiday in real life too, since my birthday is the 2nd november 1994. I also like the weather outside, which is perfect for gaming or watching a good movie.
Thah would be by far CHildren's week. th reason should be known to all. its the one week where we give to the orphand children of azeroth to children who have to share the same companion with 30 others!.we give them an Adventure like they have never seen ! what is more for filling more rewarding then putting a smile on a child...even if it is in a fantasy game :)
I love winter veil and I love all the christmas-y stuff everywhere! flying around on a reindeer christmas tree's in the mayor cities, it makes me want to kill the other faction a little bit less! :P but to be honest, many holidays havent been what they used to be! I kind of miss that. I hope the next patch will bring that back with the new Darkmoon Faire!
Winter Veil. I like getting pressents under the christmass tree because it's every year something different. :)
Brewfest, Brewmaster title is awsome.
My favorite holiday is Brewfest. The stiens are a cool idea along with the ram quest to travel booze around like back during prohibition times! (moonshine anyone?) Best of all, a jackalope pet!
My favorite holiday is Hallow's End. For starters, I luv my squashlings (I'm a big pet collector and their so cute), and then comes the challenge of the headless horseman and trying to get the mount. I have it on 2 of my 8 85's, so it's a daily quest to see if i can get another one. So far this year? No luck :( !
Got to be Brewfest. Beer, glorious beer!
My favourite festival is the Midsummer one, simply because it's something I celebrate with my family every year. I also like it specially much because of the achievements, the title, gear and other items gained during this event. It is simply an amazing time.
I think every holiday event in Azeroth has its own unique charm. Who can deny the joy and mischief of pelting your Guildies with snowballs at Winter's Veil? The fun and hilarity of racing rams drunkenly through the streets of Orgrimmar and then popping out to Dalaran to disturb the mage's peace and quiet with a little drunk and disorderly behaviour? And I dare anyone to tell me that they've never once giggled when they've transformed into a little bunny that poops easter eggs.But of all the events, there is one that I anticipate every year with a sense of giddy excitement. This one event that I was deliberately waiting around, refusing to do raids and dungeons with my guild so that I could be there the minute the event began.This event is of course, Hallows End.I live in New Zealand. Although we have a very diverse culture, the traditions of others take a long time to take root here. So halloween is not a holiday that is widely celebrated here. And throughout my childhood, my mother absolutely refused to have anything to do with it as she said it was an American tradition that had no place here. But, it's not solely an American tradition (though they do seem to be the ones to get most into it). The idea of Halloween originated in Europe in places like Scotland and Ireland as a way to celebrate the end of summer and the beginning of the harvest season, as well as taking a moment to remember the souls of the dead whom are said to rise on the night of Hallow's Even and then return to rest on All Souls Day the following day.So I guess the reason I love Hallows End so much is because it allows me to indulge that inner child who never got to celebrate halloween. And not for just one night either. No, I get 13 days of dipping into candy buckets for tricks and treats, eating candy until I either get mad off the sugar or puke it all up, helping other kids get their holiday treats and just admiring the sheer detail of the decorations everywhere. Then if that wasn't enough to have me bouncing madly off the walls with joy, there's the Headless Horseman. Yeah, with those corny rhymes I can see why they cut his head off in the first place, unfortunately it didn't have the desired effect of shutting him up. But not only does he require everyone in a faction to band together to save their towns and homes from his devastating fires, you also get to follow him to his lair and put him to rest once more, getting for yourself some nice loot in the process.Need I even mention the mounts and companion pets? Everyone covets the Reins of the Horseman which give you the ability to commit Grand Theft Palomino on his steed. And as well as the Sinister Squashling, this year there's a bevy of new pets, which you can buy if you take the time to earn enough Tricky Treats (cat in a witch's hat that rides its own little broomstick - nuff said). Or if running around after Candy Buckets isn't your thing, then how about completing this year's halloween quest chain and earning yourself a...box? No it's an enchanted crate that...eats critters? Aweeeeeesome!Then there's the burning of the Wickerman. No doubt a reference to the effigies Druids and pagans would burn as sacrifices, this blazing straw giant can be set alight in celebration of the Forsakens liberation from the Scourge which ties into the lore of Azeroth beautifully. And as can be expected, the Alliance occasionally crash the party and try to douse the flames. Which of course calls for us to retaliate by dousing their Wickerman and then stink-bombing Stormwind for good measure.I'm sorry if you all think I've rambled on, but there is just so much about Hallows End that I love. I honestly feel that it is the most compelling Event in Azeroth and though I know all good things must come to an end, I will be sorry to see the decorations be put away.Cos after all, that means I have to wait another year for it to come again. But then, I guess we do need some time to let the sugar highs wear off before we start stuffing our faces at Pilgrim's Bounty ;)
Winter Veil I started the game properly in december 2007 and the xmas tree in orgrimmar is one of my first memories :D
My favorite holiday is the Harvest Festival because, well, at least one person should pick it, and if I don't who will?
I just love Brewfest, love to see people run and fly around drunk, and we do not get fined for doing it, and the I just love beer !
My favorite is the Lunar Festival because I was doing the elders down in the dungeons on a alt of mine, decided to kill Baron and got his mount. (This was before the nerf to Strat) Bragged for three weeks that I had got it.
