The holiday season isn't that far away. 'tis the season to achievement farm! The following quests are requirements for the Merrymaker achievement, which in itself is a requirement for the What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been achievement, which rewards you with a violet proto-drake!
The Winterveil events according to the in-game calendar will go live on December 15th and end on January 2nd. AFAIK. The presents will become available on the 25th (Christmas :P) and will last until the end of Winterveil.
I just pulled these off of the in-game achievement list. If they patch anything as they did with the Halloween event, I'll update the list.

Opportunistic bastards can probably start farming small eggs for the sake of ripping off lazy people.
