Frostivus is coming soon! That merriest of times, when the river freezes over, the cold closes in, and Dire and Radiant alike retreat to the cozy security of their bases. It's the time to count blessings, lick wounds, and lay festive plans for next year's campaigns of death and destruction. The woods are snowy, the river is slippery, and the creeps are asleep in their dens. Special days!

With the river more treacherous than ever, forays into enemy terrain are unpredictable affairs, therefore during Frostivus a traditional truce extends from bank to bank. A time-honored truce so long observed that it is impossible to imagine what sort of event could lead to its breaking. With razors strapped to their boots, hooves and talons, it is a fine time for skating--but never for fighting, oh no! Remember the truce!

    No Frostivus would be complete without endless games and riotous behavior. Raise a cup of Eultide cheer and pour it on your teammate! Fling Puck around in a game of Ice-Is-Not-Nice! Lie in the snow and make Death Prophet Angels! Fell the tallest Frostivus tree with only a Quelling Blade! See who can plant the glittering Star of Madness on Treant's forehead!

Nothing bespeaks Frostivus like presents heaped around the towers! Find the one with your name on it, or engage in a wicked game of Gankee Gift Swap. Giving and receiving gifts is the essence of Frostivus. And even in the Season of Givening, it's good to be good to yourself: The Dota store is filling up with amazing holiday items that will carry you to victory in the new year!
