Well, Riot Games has laid out some of what you can do in their "Snowdown Showdown" update for LoL which will run through January in-game, giving Summoner's Rift a nice, snowy look, providing you with some wintry runes, and dropping some holiday-themed skins for your summoner.

Here are the official details from the press release:

Here are some of the Snowdown Showdown festivities summoners can enjoy from now until January 10th:

  • All-new, limited-edition skins:
  • Festive Maokai – Everyone’s favorite grumpy old tree gets adorned with lights, ornaments, and other holiday decorations.
  • Snowmerdinger – Heimerdinger gets adorned with the classic snowman apparel, right down to a carrot nose.
