Like Halloween, Christmas is a great time to hop in your favorite massively multiplayer online (MMO) game. Not just because your friends will actually have time to grind rare loot and experience with you but also because developers tend to go a little crazy (and generous) around the holidays. Unique items, characters, monsters, events, and locations — the more the merrier!

GamesBeat has rounded up what some of the biggest MMOs are doing for this year’s Christmas celebrations, but feel free to add in your own in the comments below.
