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!
The fine folks of Smokywood Pastures aren’t letting a little thing like war between the Horde and the Alliance get in the way of spreading holiday cheer—or gaining a bit of profit. Winter Veil has begun in Azeroth, and with it come all the fripperies, fineries, and delectable comestibles of the holiday.
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.
