It’s not difficult to pick my favourite in-game holiday. While Brewfest has some great humour to it, there’s only one that I really enjoy and that’s the Lunar Festival. That it is a direct nod to the Chinese New Year is a plus in why I appreciate it, but there’s something much more to it.
One of the key ideas of the Lunar Festival is to pay our respects to our Elders. To acknowledge those that came before us. In real life, this is something near and dear to me and I truly don’t think we as a society do it nearly enough. So, even if it’s just a game mechanic to some people, to me it really does mean something and so you can understand why none of the other holidays could offer me as much.
