Ho, ho, ho! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and is enjoying at least a few days off during this Holiday Season. I spent the days with my family and will be visiting other relatives later this week. Although I am obviously a gamer and like to have plenty of time to myself, connecting to the ones I love around me remains my number one priority because it feels so good to love and be loved! Exchanging presents is a wonderful way to emphasize the value of that.
At the same time I am well aware that not everyone is as fortunate as I am, so I am also reaching out to those who lack a home or even food. These little encouragements can make a world of difference to people going through a challenging period in their lives.
It’s nice to see this spirit reflected in the Yule Festival, so truly if you don’t want to, then simply don’t chase off the poor folk and don’t pester the snow beasts! The Yule Festival has changed back to a more laid back format after the grind that it was last year, and as it will last two weeks into January there’s no need to worry about getting sufficient tokens.
If you are a resident of the USA, UK, Germany or France, you will also be eligible to enter The Yuletide Contest on the Lotro Forums. Since that excludes me (and many other lotro bloggers), feel free to copy any outfit that suits you off my blog and enter it into the contest. All you need to do is dress up your own character accordingly and take your own screenshots!
I hope everyone continues to enjoy these wonderful holidays!
