As most gamers know, it’s become a yearly tradition to celebrate Winter-een-mas, from January 25th to Janury 31st each year. For those of you who don’t know what Winter-een-mas is, here’s the wikipedia explanation:
“The annual week long celebration of video games and the people that play them. Winter-een-mas is a holiday that takes place every year from January 25 to 31, but is also commonly celebrated for a month. The entire month of January constitutes the Winter-een-mas season, very similar to the “Christmas season”, where people begin to gear up for the holiday, and get into the spirit of things. The holiday was started by the fictional character Ethan in webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del by Tim Buckley. Its stated goal is to “celebrate the joy of video gaming“. Many gaming stores, such as EB Games, celebrate the holiday.”
So how are you going to celebrate Winter-een-mas? I myself will go back and play som all time favorite games, try out some new ones and on saturday join a bunch of friends for a gaming weekend where everybody is set to finish a game of their own choice.
