Noblegarden, or "NOT TODAY"

In a blunder of magnificent proportions, the official Warcraft website events page has been advertising Noblegarden, the Warcraft Easter celebration, as April 14th. I know this because I put it on my google calendar, thinking "How lucky! I'll be home from vacation to look for eggs!" And I really just wanted one of the pretty dresses.

It was held on Easter day, April 8. Though I knew the 14th was the Saturday after Easter, I shrugged and went on with my life, never expecting to get screwed for my trouble.

The date, now that Noblegarden has PASSED, has been corrected on the official events page. I couldn't tell you how soon before Easter it was changed, but I promise I checked it since the Lunar Festival in late February, and it hadn't changed. I guess this just shows that you need to check the date the month of, and not just a month or two in advance.

Needless to say, I'm really frustrated. I didn't have my computer on Easter (visiting family out-of-state), but I could have been expecting to miss the event, instead of jazzing myself up for it.


According to sources, the event wasn't very fancy at all. No decorations, no hooplah, just some eggs scattered around. As to where they were or how hard they were to find, maybe some readers who pity me could fill us in on more details.
