It's like all past Christmas quests - it's broken down into days (I should have made this clear, I'll fix it :oops:). So we can do part 1 on the 12th but we have to wait for the 13th to do part 2.

Thanks for the list Leah, a great help. I guess that having to wait for the next day beats having to make candles, pottery, etc.

Mine started at 2:00am on the 12th. For about a year now all my quests and events have started at 2am EST. I wonder if for some reason they decided to have everyone's quest start at the same time instead of just on a certain day. Does everyone have their's now?
