Letters to Santa Contest – (Dec 17th – Dec 22nd) 


F Recon Antlers Holly Jolly StripeEvery year when the calendar nears the end of December, Santa embarks on New Eden bearing gifts of a cosmetic kind. He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice, ARES Operators wanting goodies have to pay a small price.


Santa wants to know which holiday cosmetic is on your wishlist this year. Send a letter to Santa at community@red5studios.com describing what Wintertide cosmetic you’re dreaming about, why you want it, and why you deserve it, and you might just find the sparkly new item of your choosing under the Firefall Christmas tree. The top picks will have their holiday wish come true on the Wintertide live stream Dec 23rd (no minimum or maximum letter length requirement).
