Are we having a Winter Bash this year? I really hope so.

Usually this late in November the countdown page is already up.

In 2020 it was up by November 24th.

In 2018 it was up by November 23rd.

In 2019 the countdown did come late (early December), so maybe there's still hope...

So, I checked the accepted answer to the same question which was asked last year: Will we have a winter bash 2020 this year?. Not sure why you left that one out of your search results, but it would've given you your answer.

Because the accepted answer to last year's question linked to the roadmap from the 'The Loop' blog posts.

So, I checked the roadmap for Q4 2021 and that one does indeed include winter bash.

    Like I said, it's about the accepted answer to that question, and I know you linked to one that suited the narrative in your question better. Point is, it made this information so trivial to find....

Countdown has started - Winter Bash 2021 will start December 15th, but at an unusual time: noon instead of midnight (UTC).

    That's a much better start time as far as I'm concerned.

    Thanks, @Glorfindel. Much friendlier and straightforward of an answer. The link is an added bonus!

    Thank you @amWhy. To Tinkeringbell's defense: the countdown page did not exist when she wrote her answer :)

  • Even though I'm in the northern hemisphere (where it is indeed winter, very definitely), I approve of the summer option for our southern friends. Now, if only you could make our days a bit longer to match... Commented Dec 20, 2021 at 15:03
  • The CMs told all diamond moderators 12+ days in advance, or just Meta.SE ones? Commented Dec 25, 2021 at 1:52
  • @user1271772 no, why? That was just the launch of the countdown page we get to see every year...
