Is it at the daily reset on January 2nd (00:00 UTC) or the usual time updates are released (16:00 UTC)?

    Doesn't Wintersday go until the 8th?

    yes, big patch is not before next week

    It'll likely fade away tomorrow around the usual patch time, but they didn't give a specific time

  • Probably in 30 minutes from this post.

    • ANet added in a feature a long time ago that allows them to end a festival without a patch.
    • Since then, when they do so, it's often around noon at ANet's office. (20:00 UTC). Sometimes at reset (in January, that's 4 pm ANet's time, 00:00 UTC)
    • The official announcements stated that Wintersday would end on the 2nd of January.
    • No official statement implying a different date has been offered since the LS4.5 trailed was released.

    tl;dr I expect it will end either in 30 minutes or 4.5 hours from the time I posted

    Well, the daily Wintersday Category has vanished now. So I guess all is gone until next Wintersday.

    The above was written as part of an attempt to waste time.

    I wish the forum would have time stamps. I am curious at what hour they ended it. I remember Halloween being extended by a few hours beyond the usual patch time.

  • Posts on the forum do have time stamps. Unless you mean something else.

    Think the timestamp is removed and replaced by the date when the day changes (eg i only see jan 2nd for ashantaras post but 12:11am for yours) and that likely varies depending on timezone

  • You can hover over the dates to see the time as well.

    They ended this one (and Halloween) around noon their time, like most festivals since they stopped needing a patch to end the holiday.

    Okay, so that would be 21:00 o'clock my time (or 9 p.m. as Americans would call it ;) ).
