Winter Veil begins today, December 16

Wowhead Christmas 2011 by Noxychu
The later seasons of Azeroth are marked as a time of change in many cultures. The term "Winter Veil" is said to stem from a supernatural being referred in many cultures to as Greatfather Winter. As he would walk the land late in the seasons, winter itself would be his billowing cloak. In his wake was the blanketing of the land in snow, and thus it is said that Greatfather Winter would cast his wintry veil over the land.
Winter Veil, the seasonal holiday of Azeroth, begins today. So huddle up to your Cozy Fire and see if you can't talk Greatfather Winter into giving you some epics this year. Wowhead has a guide up to what is new for 2013, and it looks like we're getting two new achievements, both earned with the new Crashin' Thrashin' Flyer Controller. This is the special gift in your capital city, and players can also purchase the previous gifts from Toy Vendors.

Last year, various bosses were modified to wear and drop winter hats in both red and green. It was almost exclusively bosses from older content, so maybe this year Winter Veil will be coming to Pandaria too. Do check out Wowhead's very comprehensive guide to all the achievements, items and gifts you can happen upon in this festival, grab an eggnog, pop on your Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater, and sing us a carol or two.

Feast of Winter Veil begins on Monday

The season of Winter Veil is nearly upon us, adding a big dose of holiday festivity to the game world. Even if you've done this holiday before, it's hard to resist the temptation of getting your own Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater, filling out your battle pet collection with a Lump of Coal, or just getting into a snowball fight. Patch 5.4 files suggested some changes to the holiday this year, and Wowhead says we can look forward to new a new pet and toy this season.

If you're looking forward to participating in this year's holiday festivities, Winter Veil will run from December 16 to January 2, and you'll find holiday decor and events in most major cities. Happy holidays!
