Happy Thanksgiving, all ye mmorpg.com denizens from the US!
I have been getting a flurry of emails about upcoming holiday events in different games I have played. Many of those things start this week/weekend. My L2 account is even being reactivated until Dec. 7. I just wish I'd be around to check all this goodness out. I'll be traveling for Thanksgiving tomorrow and won't return until Monday, just in time to dive head first into the chaos that is December.
Holiday magic doesn't happen by accident. If you have a really great homemade cookie or go to a holiday party that's a lot of fun this December, someone worked hard on that. (And in our family, with my aging mother not quite up to it these days, that someone is me.)
Luckily, I live in a place where we're likely to be snowed in a lot starting in January. Midwinter is my season of MMO playing. Really, there's nowhere else to go and not a lot else going on. That's the time of year I am looking forward to, when the holiday stress and work is over and the games begin!
