"The year is slowly winding down, but the merriment of Winter Veil is about to begin! Greatfather Winter is already on his way to spread holiday cheer in the Nexus, and he’s packing plenty of presents for everyone to enjoy during this year’s festivities." [1]

The Feast of Winter Veil, also called the feast of Great-Winter, is a seasonal event from the Warcraft universe that takes place during December. It is the in-game counterpart of the Christmas and other holidays at the end of the year.

The event will be celebrated with new limited availability skins and mounts, and special event quests.

While there, you’ll find a few treats, and surely a few tasks to take on as well.[2]
