Wintersday Redux!

Wintersday comes twice this year! Due to Grentchy technical issues with the Festival Hat distribution during the Wintersday finale earlier this month, we're hosting a special encore festival, complete with all the Wintersday activities you love!

Wintersday Redux begins at noon Pacific time (-8 GMT) on Friday, January 29th and runs until 11:59 PM Pacific time on Sunday, February 7th. During the big finale, everyone will get another chance to pick up a Wintersday Festival Hat. If you can't make it to the finale, look for special holiday collectors who will exchange Festival Hats for Candy Cane Shards!

Check out our Wintersday page for more info.
