Feast of the Winter Veil is a fun time. The guys from Blizzard begin their holiday decorating at 6 a.m. on December 15th, ending on January 2nd. In most cities, a Christmas tree is decorated with tinsel, ornaments and packages. Christmas lights hang from trees and buildings. There are holiday vendors and quests. Special patterns for holiday outfits are available for tailors over 250. Holiday recipes only available at this time of year, are sold. Revelers converse in inns, waiting to be kissed under the mistletoe. They send gifts to toons that send them kisses.
Great Father Winter sits in Iron Forge and Orgrimmar and asks for gingerbread cookies and milk. The more clever players realize this ahead of time, and are banking their small eggs to sell at the auction house.
The first quest given is Great Father Winter is Here! It’s easy; you just turn to Father Winter and talk to him. The quest is done. My level 61 Death Knight gained 975 experience points. Treats for Greatfather Winter is the reason for the small eggs. They are quite the commodity at this time, and can make a toon very rich. A toon must know cooking 1 to do this quest. It requires 5 holiday spice (it would be a good idea, by the way, to bank some of this holiday spice. It tends to sell well in the summer) 5 milk, and 5 small eggs. Cook it up, and bring that and one milk to Great Father Winter. Small eggs can be found on several creatures and beasts throughout beginning areas in Azeroth. 2400 experience was gained plus the gift of 10 copper bars, from Great Father Winter. The gifts are random, from holiday enchanting recipes, to ore.
