Happy Halloween everyone! We hope that you enjoy this holiday as much as we do. It’s a night of warm chili and cornbread, apple cider, pajamas, and family for us.
Halloween, although not anywhere near the date when we started our blog (February 2007), has become a tradition of “where are we now?” here on the blog. In 2007, when we first started the tradition, we were playing EQ2 on Antonia Bayle, 2008 was spent in Warhammer Online, and 2009 was oddly enough spent in Aion. This year we are extremely happy to find ourselves in World of Warcraft.
This is not our first Halloween spent in WoW though. In fact, in might be our third. I can remember back to the very first Halloween event that Blizzard put on when the straw-man was first lit. This holiday has always been one of Blizzard’s bests and remains one of the best holiday events in any MMO ever — perhaps tied with EQ2 and The Realm. The atmosphere created by the lit pumpkins and how they have a way of making a simple setting like the inn in Brill feel eerily festive is really magical.
