Every year as Christmas rolls around no matter where you live in the world there is something going on and some sort of official and unofficial recognition, whether that is just decorations or organized celebrations, there is always something -- and increasingly the festive holiday cheer has been spreading like a virus from real life into the worlds of our virtual life. Christmas 2011 is no exception to that trend, and since the big day is literally only a few days away, we thought we would take a look at what is happening virtually, just in case you have not kept in the loop -- because at Gaming Update we know that missing out on an awesome holiday activity or quest is a total bummer!
The festive nature of the holiday means we can count on certain things to happen -- from Christmas Quests to The Guild issuing a Christmas Video (see above) it is nice to know you can count on the holiday to deliver! Here is a selection of the events in a virtual world near you! If we did not list your preferred virtual world that does not mean that there is no event -- so log in today and see what is shaking for the Holiday!
