Howdy, folks! You may have noticed our radio silence last week, but rest assured, we have not forgotten about you! In fact, we've been hard at work getting a ton of amazing new content ready for you that will (hopefully!) keep you enchanted and entertained during your days in Erinn.

September is halfway over, and the displays in stores everywhere are beginning to put out their pumpkins, ghosts, and plastic spiders for Halloween (they seem to show up earlier every year...), which got us to wondering... In the time you've been playing Mabinogi, what has been your favorite seasonal event? What made that event memorable? Was it a great reward? Fun characters and dialogue? Really involved quests that kept you busy? With such a long history, there are plenty of Mabi memories to draw on, so let us know!

    Does the Fairy Village Event we had last year count as seasonal? That was by far my favorite!

    I liked that you could do it on all of your characters. It gave me something to grind without it being related to CP and it wasn't AFK. Plus, the fairy's popping out are cute. >w<

    FOREVER ago there was an event where Santas with multiple different colored outfits were in the towns of Erinn, each one asking for help.

    This was way back when, so I don't have very many pictures of the event, but I remember one thing.

    Now, this was WAY before Style tab, but this event was very unique for its time, as whenever your character was helping out one of the Santas, your clothing would be altered to show your character wearing a Santa's helper outfit of the same color.

    Here's my character back in 2008 helping Bangor's Santa, showing me having the appearance of his Yellow outfit.

    Now I'm sure it's nostalgia goggles wishing this would be brought back, as I don't remember the rewards being good, even by standards back in the day, but the event had charm.
    I'm not even sure if the event would work nowadays, as I'm sure back in the day it probably used some prototype of the style tab, and it'd probably conflict with that nowadays, but I remember this event whenever I think of holiday-themed Mabi events.

    I think my most favorite seasonal event (if you can call it that) was Samhain; it was like playing through a Generation, complete with a questline, characters and an overarching plot. It's something that I've actually wanted to play through another time even though I've played through it before, although that's a suggestion for a different thread.

    I have alot of good memories about mabi.

    I started playing during October/November 2010, so I was in time for the Xmas or Winter events involving the Physis Ski event.

    The events I loved more than anything were the aniversary and April Fools events because of how funny they were.

    The summer Beach parties were awesome too.

    Stores where I live put christmas stuff out in August... =_= it's disgusting

    When it comes to seasonal events in mabinogi, I liked doki doki for valentines because that place was just super pretty overall and had lots of things to do and was very fitting for the holiday. I liked when the beach got covered in ghost ships for samhain but that was purely aesthetic. the belisha mansion was pretty neat too, but there wasn't that much to it, and no one liked waiting in that room at the end. NO ONE!

    Rewards-wise one of my favorites was christmas math because you could slap around the humbuggers for gold and get some pretty nice homestead items. I also liked the halloween event with the farmer and pumpkin boxes because he gave really good stuff even though I never got the drawstring pouch.

    Story-wise, Samhain is the best, Still hoping for a sequel/continuation

    I usually do Spring thru Autumn events, but Doki Doki stood out because it was relaxing.
    I feel that there's more activity for autumn events because they require one to be active, such as Belisha events.
    Summer events are less challenging in my opinion, maybe because most people get burned out by heat waves.
    For the few winter ones I've done, skiing events and snowman fight were pretty fun.

    Definitely the Halloween updates, I've loved the Halloween Labyrinth and the Little Ghost ones the most. I also loved Doki Doki island a lot too.
    I really want to see Christmas Math again though too because I never participated in it before so I'm curious about it.
