The first thing to do was to track down all the new players in this zone to hand out the gifts we saved for them. Pets, weapons, armor, all gift wrapped and free! Lucky people
Everyone got holiday outfits
Handing out the holly
Each person was given 2x [Preserved Holly]
for the parade from Northshire Valley to Coldridge Valley. Here people are getting on their mounts and ready for the screenshot attempt.
Fedwick took some better pictures of this tree I'm sure. I was near the front so all my pictures were askew. Notice the star at the top, the various ornaments and the people making up the trunk :)
So long Northshire Abbey
And so the parade begins...
Parading through Stormwind
The town was so winding that we probably stretched back by a few districts by the time we got here.
Taking the Deeprun Tram
Did we sing carols on the tram? You would have had to have been there to know for sure.
You'd think these gnomes would be happy...
After all, look at all those reindeer!
That's a lotta people!
Great shot of us all heading down the hill in front of Ironforge. By this time a bunch of people joined in as well :)
Pit stop in Kharanos
Karin and Shikaro wanted to hand out a gift to everyone attending tonight, so we made a pit stop here before continuing. This photo is of Shikaro getting swamped with people crowding up to get their gifts.
Departing for Coldridge Valley
After Shikaro distributed the gift to each guildie for them to open when they got the signal, we got ready to leave Kharanos and head to Coldridge Valley.
Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'
Keep movin', movin', movin',
Though they're disapprovin',
Keep them doggies movin' Rawhide!
Map of our locations
This doesn't even show everyone, since we had more than a single raid group will allow! I think we had about 60 people or so in the parade.
We arrive in Coldridge Valley
This pic is just after we arrived. I think we surprised a few of the new players, all of whom were showered with gifts from our members.
Playing with our new toys
So, great party huh?
