Happy Holidays From Blizzard and the DiabloFans team!
Everyone here at Dfans wishes you the best of times during the holidays. Enjoy your time with your friends and family!

'Tis the Season
As a small gift from our team, we've created a few festive Facebook cover photos and Twitter banners so you can deck the halls of your social media pages with some epic yuletide flare:

And speaking of presents, don't forget to be on the lookout for some heroic holiday giveaways, courtesy of Diablo III fansites!)

See You Next Year!
Just as a heads-up, the community team will have a reduced presence on the forums, Twitter, and Facebook over the holidays as we get ready to unwrap our very own Treasure Goblins and ring in a new year with family and friends. We're eager to hit the ground running in January, though, and look forward to discussing the delicate art of demon slaughter with you in 2013.

In the meantime, whether in Sanctuary, Azeroth, Mar Sara, or beyond, we hope that you and yours share in the warmth of the season. It's truly been a pleasure for us to represent Blizzard and the Diablo III community this past year, and we want to thank each and every one of you for your support, your reports, and (most importantly) your passion.

Have a fantastic holiday, everyone...and may all your loot be legendary!

Your friendly neighborhood North American Diablo III Community Team, featuring...

    Santa Barbarian picture is awesome. Wish they'd add a christmas hat, even if that's all they did.

    But, they've already said they're just going to continue doing other stuff so that's okay too I guess.

    The community team gets a lot of crap from a lot of people, but I'm glad they are there to do the job that they do.

    Merry Christmas to them and to everyone.

    The Witch Doctor Christmas Banner is so awesome! The zombie dog made it more epic :]

    Really like the witch doctor themed santa, would be amazing to have as a wallpaper!

    Also the mini-tyrael statue in the DiabloFans giveaway, is that a part of the diablo 3 CE or is it a stand alone miniature figure?

    Merry Christmas everyone,

    is it possible to Upgrade an existing Account with a CE, or does it count as a new one?

    Happy Holidays too.. I hope it will be a good 2013 year for all Diablo fans who still have small hopes for this game.... I wonder if they will release PVP on May 2013.. a year after the game was officially released.
