This is a work in progress so keep checking in! There really are not a ton of events listed on many sites yet. I am a fiend for all things holiday so if you are looking for some fun events I'm sure more will pop up as the month goes on, I like to list fun holiday events each month as I find out about them. Enjoy!

World of Warcraft : Feast of Winter Veil. December 15th - January 2nd. Gift giving: Starts: December 25th Ends: January 2nd. This is a really fun event. Quests, achievements, snowmen, Metzen the reindeer, winter bosses for a chance at the coveted Winter Hats.. and presents!! Each yeah (well since last year) there is a new type of present under the tree. I wonder what this year's will be?! A very merry holiday event!

Everquest 2: Frostfell. Fun instances, quests, holiday items and decorations! Frostfell Wonderland Village is a really great part of this event. Holiday outfits, snowballs, food, house items. This is a truly fantastic event.

Wonderland Online: Warm and Fuzzy Christmas Events I. November 30th -December 6th. Winter's here and with it comes the holidays! That's right! Everyone's favorite time of year is here and Santa is preparing gifts for all! In the spirit of this time of giving, WLO has prepared a series of events for all our dear players, whether they're naughty or nice!

Runes of Magic: Christmas time is coming to Taborea. We have put in place a host of special events and offers to put Runes of Magic fans in a proper holiday spirit. In mid-December, we will launch the in-game Snowflake Festival, which will give the game world a truly festive look. With the release of daily quests, you will be able to play for gifts. You can even use Festive furniture and Christmas tree seeds to decorate your in-game houses. Also don't miss the cool Advent Calendar.

Aion: The Solorius Festival. This looks like a neat event. From the official website: "The Solorius Festival is not only one of the year’s most anticipated events, but also one of the oldest. Its origin dates back to before the Cataclysm. It is a festival of communion, sharing, and appreciation. Wealth and status are set aside each year as families make diligent preparations in advance to honor the ascended. Many Atreians travel to a capital city to immerse themselves in the festivities."

Champions Online: Attack of the misfit toys Confront and defeat Black Harlequin. New costume pieces, action figures and perks. Tis the season for spreading good will and good cheer, And to celebrate the holidays, The Toymaster’s here! Looks to be very exciting! Lots of nifty rewards listed on the official site.

DDO: Festivult. The Jester of the Festivult is now available in the game! He's looking for your copper, silver, and gold festival coins to exchange for wondrous festive treats!

Fallen Earth: First Night. December 14 - Jan 1. First Night is a holiday celebration that incorporates many of the traditions from holidays past. Players in the mood to spread holiday cheer can make their way to the various First Night mission hubs scattered throughout the wasteland. I'm dreaming of a wasteland Christmas! This could be fun!

Warhammer: Keg End. December 16 - Jan 1. A festive extravaganza packed with great new items, monsters, events and challenges for players to master. Keg End is filled with the things Dwarfs like best - Beer, Boasting and things that explode. Looks great!

Guild Wars: Wintersday. Lots of Holiday fun. Can you feel that crisp chill in the air? It's that time of year when the cities of Tyria shine like beacons with festive decor, and the gods Dwayna and Grenth fight over who will control the weather during the coming months. Holiday vendors sell seasonal treats, and the air is full of snowballs and the sound of laughter. Wintersday is almost here!
