'Tis the season or so they say.  Well, that's exactly what Turbine said today with the start of the Yule Festival in The Lord of the Rings Online.  Exactly what is a Yule Festival?  It's an in-game celebration that offers new quests and a Festival Square for players to gather in and socialize.  There are even special events like a Snowball Fight, Eating Contest, and Theatre Event with a seasonal show.  

Turbine has put together a rather lengthy developer diary which can be read here.  We also have some pics of the festivities that are already underway.  What are you waiting on?  Go get your eggnog flowing!
