The 12 Days of Winter Veil

Posted December 26th, 2010 by Miss Mediocre

I’m still super busy with holiday festivities, but I have a few moments this snowy boxing day morning to write a quick post! I thought I’d share my World of Warcraft gift idea for my boyfriend this year with all of you!

I’m crazy about giving gifts in WoW. The day I found the in game wrapping paper was a wondrous one, and wrapping random things and sending them to my in game friends is still something I love to do year round. I decided to go all out this year, as I have accumulated a good chunk of gold, so instead of one in game gift, I did the 12 days of Winter Veil leading up to Christmas Day for my boyfriend. (I do realize the 12 days of Christmas usually starts on Christmas Day, but I gave him the option to have the gifts leading up to Christmas, which he jumped on, lol)

I’d never really noticed just how many birds are in the 12 days of Christmas song until I tried to mirror each day with something in game. I ended up getting a bit far away from the original song as the 12 days went on, but he still liked them! Here is my WoW version of the 12 days of Christmas.

On the first day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… A Mini Druid Tree (Teldrassil Sproutling).
On the second day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 2 White Tickbirds
On the third day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 3 Ancona Chickens
On the fourth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 4 Cata BoEs
On the fifth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 5 Golden Rings (of Power)!
On the sixth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 6 Cherry Pies
On the seventh day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me…700 gold
On the eighth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me…8 Grindgear Gorillas
On the ninth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 9 Red Roses
On the tenth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 10 Frogs a Leaping (Tree Frogs)
On the eleventh day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 11 Frostweave bags
On the twelth day of Winter Veil my true love gave to me… 12 thousand gold (or a Mekgineer’s Chopper, which is what he picked)

He was pretty happy with the gifts, and at least most the WoW versions were a little related to the originals! If you’re like me and forgot some of the original 12 days, here’s a link to the wiki if you’d like a refresher!

I hope you’re all enjoying a safe and happy holiday, and remember to take a few minutes out of your busy Christmas schedules to log into WoW and visit the Ironforge or Orgrimmar tree because Great-Father Winter is finally letting us open up all those gifts! I’ll resume regular posting and reply to e-mails and comments asap! Everything should slow down for me early this week!

Happy Holidays,
Miss Merry Mediocre <3 hehe

    Cute idea :) I did not know the wrapping paper actually did anything at all – i have to try it now

    Vannah : I have a lot of fun with it! You can actually get special holiday wrapping paper from the Smokywood Pastures vendors for Winter Veil right now! I like to stock up on the purple for later in the year… It just feels right wrapping epics in purple paper!
