Plus, for the first time ever, you get to see the Eye of the North all decked out in its best holiday finery!

Clear your schedule from December 19th through January 5th, and make plans to join Lt. Thackeray of the Ebon Vanguard as he oversees and coordinates the most spectacular Wintersday festival ever!
