Winter-een-mas is a holiday started by brain frostbite of Tim Buckley's very own Ethan. It was a holiday for everyone to serve him, but fortunately, it has changed from that beginning idea.

Winter-een-mas is a gamer's holiday. The Winter-een-mas season lasts all of January, but the holiday is the last week of January, January 25-31. It emphasizes the companionship of gamers. However, gift-giving is not recommended, as it may ruin the holiday spirit. Small, handmade gifts are quite alright, though.

Celebrate Winter-een-mas by playing videogames with your friends, by wearing interesting gaming clothing/accesories, and especially by writing letters of thanks to those wonderful developers who make the games!

According to the brilliant guys at,

"Winter-een-mas, in it's essence, is a holiday for gamers. It is a celebration of games and the gamers who play them. Video games allow us to do things, go places, see stuff that we
couldn't do in real life. They can be an escape from reality, a release after a long day, a fun activity with friends, or just an enjoyable way to pass time. They give us a lot of entertainment. So why shouldn't
they be celebrated?

And in the same spirit, gamers themselves are extraordinary people. There are millions of people world-wide that enjoy video games. Some are hardcore fanatics, some are casual gamers. But we are all part of
the same community, and it's a community to be proud of.

The Winter-een-mas season lasts all of January, with the actual holiday lasting seven days, January 25-31."
Happy Winter-een-mas!

Wintereenmas is a video gaming holiday that lasts for one week at the end of January. It is so named because, like Cristmas, there is a roughly one-month lead-in throughout the month of January.
