Will there be quests for Thanksgiving and Christmas?

I received a wonderful e-mail from Amber Pixiedust. She sounds like a fun mom and had some really nice things to say about my blog here. Thank you Amber! I decided to choose one of her questions and answer it here.
. . . Do you think Kingsisle will do something for Thanksgiving and Christmas (quests) like they did for Halloween?

Well, I will be pleasantly surprised if they did, but I think all you're going to see for Thanksgiving and Christmas are clothing vendors. Here's what they did for Thanksgiving last year. And here's what they did for Christmas.

Also, don't forget their new promotion for Veteran's Day.

My wish for a Christmas present is a brand new world called Celestia. I'd be incredibly exstatic if that happened. I'd also like to see them release the school-based castles and lands that we saw in the AbleGamer video. I'd rather see their programmers busily working on those two projects than some Thanksgiving day quests personally. ;-)

At Blizzard they actually have one person hired to specifically work on holiday quests and special events. Of course, they can afford to do that and they've been around for 15 years now. KI's staff is much smaller. They do look strapping though, don't they? They're looking to hire like 9 more people right now. So, they're growing! You have to have a college degree though, kids. Stay in school!

Thanks again for the great e-mail, Mrs. Pixiedust!

Happy Dueling!
