That was a huge let down last year. I want my GPL back
I think I contributed a little to it too. It's nothing even close to a pile! It looks like a plate of Hersey Almond bars with the outter wrapper removed. Just gold foil covered chocolate that I can't even eat.
Senshi just gave me an interesting idea. Although the Holiday event isn't really focused around any specific tradition. The 12 days of Q sounds like fun. Each day Q gives out another particular little rare item (one per toon). If you manage to round up all 12 items, you can cash them in for something like, a Santa hat, Q's costume, or something fun like a Q non-combat pet that would randomly harass you!
