On the second day of giveaways, Hi-Rez gave to me... two gift packages!

On the first day of giveaways, Turbine gave to me... a lifetime VIP!

Today we continue Massively's 12 Days of Giveaways! During this 12-day event, you'll find presents galore, courtesy of some of the best MMOs out there. Every day until December 24th, we'll post a new contest for you to enter. We've got a huge pile of goodies to give away, so they're going to be fast and furious -- you'll have 24 hours from the time the contest is posted to enter. Don't worry, though, because we're going to do our best to accommodate everyone -- you'll simply have to leave a comment to be entered in the random drawing, and we'll be posting each contest at a different time of day.

Welcome to day two! Today is all about high-tech armor, jetpacks, and agency vs. agency battles as we look to see how Global Agenda is celebrating the season. You've heard that great minds think alike, right? It holds true in this case, as Hi-Rez is giving players a chance to earn the "12 Drops of Christmas" in Global Agenda.

The developers have included us in the fun by offering two Massively readers one of these special drops, well before anyone else in game has access, as well as some bonus gifts! Peek behind the cut to see what they are!

Who doesn't love to dress up for the holidays? Global Agenda's 12 Drops of Christmas brings players a host of new flair to earn, and there really is something for everyone. Each day will offer a new item and a new way to receive it. You'll earn the drops through a variety of gameplay participation both in and out of combat. The first task will be revealed tomorrow, so keep an eye on the site. The available headgear ranges from the absurd (a raw turkey perched on your character's head) to the festive (a string of lights). Even better, if you earn all 12, you'll receive a bonus flair: the Abominable Snowman.

For our second day of giveaways, Global Agenda has gift bundles for two lucky Massively readers. Each one contains a Crusty the Snowman Flair, a 10-day boost that doubles loot and XP, and a Global Agenda download key. If you're not a GA player, there is no better time to jump in.

All you need to do is leave a comment by tomorrow, December 15th at 9:59 a.m. ET and let us know which of the pieces of holiday flair in Global Agenda is your favorite. Tomorrow, we'll draw two commenters at random for the gift packages. Don't forget to check our contest rules, and good luck!
