    When? Saturday 15th December, 12pm to 12am UK Time

    It's a day of snow this Saturday! As some of you may have seen the Christmas Tree at Luna has gone up and what a mighty tree it is, Pop down there at any point on Saturday after 12pm UK Time to begin your Christmas mission. The mission will be available until midnight. There will be a moongate at the EM Hall in Britain to the tree.

    12pm UK?
    I always puzzled by 12h time format and 12am 12pm hours. Is it midnight?

    AM - ante meridiem - before noon, mid-day.
    PM - post meridiem - post noon, mid-day

    As noon is 12 o'clock (12:00), therefore everything after that would be PM. But why 12:00 itself? Well, as the microsecond after 12:00 is also post 12, from the human perspective as soon as it becomes 12, it's already past 12... so it's PM too. And like wise as soon as midnight comes, it's morning... until 11:599999999999999999... (add your own nines here) again.

    Yes, pretty much that ;) Basically the 12 when the sun is up is AM, the 12 when it's dark is PM... but 1, 2, 3 o'clock after those are the opposite.

    http://www.npl.co.uk/science-techno...aqs/is-midnight-12-a.m.-or-12-p.m.-(faq-time)

    I'm guessing that the EMs meant from 12:00 to 24:00 on the 15th... don't use am/pm where international and local standards of use all clash methinks :p

    The quest is now enabled! To start it head down to Luna Moongate, just opposite is a Christmas Tree, you'll be told what to do from there. The quest will be available for 12 hours.

    It's a cute little quest... but apart from the EMs having real lives, is there any reason the Snow Village couldn't stay over the holidays, and have a few more adventures before it all melts? There doesn't have to be rewards, but don't break a little boy's heart so quickly!

    erm, I don't think a timer on the deco over rides the clearly announced timing on the boards and town criers. If you were Christmas shopping up to midnight I'm afraid you missed it.

    As Petra stated, i am afraid you missed it THP - it was written that the quest will be on for 12 hours and i just checked my rune to the place and the item you had to click there to get a gift (which was one per account btw) is gone...

    Nice non-fighting quest btw - great job Adris!

    Glad you all enjoyed the event, was fun to put together as well as building the North Pole. :D

    And THP, I am very sorry you mistook the deco timers for the event timer, Those are just to save us cleaning things up, they just poof instead.
