Whoosh. Well, that went by rather quickly, didn't it? Day of the Dead
ends today. Two days is most certainly a short time for a World of Warcraft
holiday, but fortunately, there was little to do. Just a visit to Catrina, buying a bread recipe, sharing it with some dead folks, and that's it. It didn't exactly go off without a hitch, either, as there were some known issues with the event
. But everything was fixed, eventually, and the short event is now about to finish.
How did everyone find the short holiday? It mirrored the short holiday it was based on in the real world, and even similar holidays all over the world. In the Philippines, we got a non-working holiday for November 2, where most folks are off to the provinces visiting their dead. How did everyone's Day of the Dead go? Were you able to take a gander at the lovely dancing Catrina? Were you able to bake some (presumably stale) bread
? What's your take on these short holidays? Personally, I think it's a nice touch. These blink-and-you'll-miss-it events similar to Pirate's Day
are nice nods to our real world happenings. Hopefully, all of you got a chance to enjoy this new but brief world event.
