Mootus says, "I found myself up in Silvermoon and thought my Santa Claus look-a-like fit in pretty well."

While waiting to enter Karazhan the other day: Siobhancat & Xanthe (Greymane-H) got into the Christmas spirit by "dawning now our gay apparel, fa la la, la la la, la...la...la...."
Faloolchong says, "Myself and fellow guildie Novablaze were bored in Ironforge last night so we decided to start a reindeer conga line round the city. At its longest it had about 32 people all /following each other!"
Smegaleg says, "It started with me and a guild mate dancing in SW wearing our Winter Veil outfits, and the next thing we knew, everyone was dancing. Then this turned into everyone getting on their reindeer... then a conga line formed and went from SW to IF and beyond!"
Carlo tells us: This is my first WoW Christmas, and I really wanted to dress my cow up as Santa Claus. So, I got my Red Winter Hat from Heroic Mechanar and I just NEEDED the Red Winter Clothes to match! To my dismay, the pattern was Alliance only. Though, I did remember that the Red Winter Clothes weren't BoE so I got one from a friend who had an Alliance tailor alt on the same server. So right now, I am the only (at least as far as I know) the only Santaurenclaus in all of the Horde side on Bonechewer.
Lazarhat offers this story of Winter Veil cheer from Greymane: A L70 by the name of Toromac spent the entire day buying low level weapons and armor (175G worth!) and accepted donations from other L70s (150G more!), wrapping them and handing them out for free to lowbies. In addition people sent him blues items that he distributed for free to people over L40. I believe he plans to do this for the rest of the celebration and for that (as a L49 meatshield on my first ever main in WoW) I and others are especially appreciative. He should be nominated for sainthood!
Lazarhat explains: this shot's of me next to Greatfather Winter Veil mounted on a reindeer, wearing a gnome form in fullsanta suit... which is a good trick for a Troll.
Corindia brags that she has the Alliance-only pattern "Red Winter Clothes." Apparently she convinced an Alliance-side player to trade the red Alliance version for the green Horde version for the authentic holiday look!
Laurei tells us: While having fun with my new flying Rudolf mount, I came across this scenery.... It kind of represents the story of Rudolf who goes to heaven for one night (in the French version of the song).

MirnKaya of Aggramar (EU) says, "Winter Veil ended more than 24 hours ago, and all the trees, decorations, special quests, and other festivities are long gone. Still, atop a small hill in Tanaris, where the decorated tree stood throughout the holiday the presents were left as a small forgotten reminder of those great days..."
