|Here we have Lions Arch decorated for Wintersday. The big difference it that which is not seen, the plot. In Guild Wars, Wintersday was a celebration held to determine how long winter would last, a fight between Dwayna and Grenth; Spring and Winter.|
In Guild Wars 2, Wintersday has evolved in a celebration much like the holidays we have here on earth. It's a time of gift giving and peace. A guest of honor distributes toys each year and this year it happens to be the Asuran toymaker, Tixx and his trusty golem, Toxx.
|A screenshot from the snowball fights of each game. It's a PvP mini game where you deliver gifts from the battlefield to your team's deposit area. You are given a number of snow themed skills (GW2 offers different classes of snowballers) to stop the enemy and defend your team as you each transport the gifts.|
