Feast of Winter Veil World Event Guide (December 16 – January 2)

The Feast of Winter Veil is a holiday in World of Warcraft, inspired by winter festivities around the world. It is themed around wrapping and gifting presents, helping the Greatfather Winter, dressing up in festive clothes, and defeating the Abominable Greench. You can also bake some cookies and make eggnog!

When: December 16 - January 2
Where: Initial holiday quests can be found in Orgrimmar and Ironforge, but festive decorations can be found throughout the world.
