Eva is coming back to share tidings of joy and merriment with the Guardians of Destiny 2 in this year's The Dawning event. She'll be located in the Tower and you'll be able to bake holiday goodies to exchange for various items. New ingredients and recipes have been added.

Destiny 2's Dawning event will be back on 17 December 2019. 'Tis the season to spread cheer (and cookie crumbs) throughout the solar system while keeping the Darkness at bay.

Make your way to the Tower, follow the smell of the sugar cookies and keep toasty around Eva’s Holiday Oven. This year's activities will see you collecting ingredients and hurrying back to Eva Levante and her upgraded Holiday Oven. With each batch of cookies you deliver, you’ll gain progress towards bounties and rewards for some Seasonal cheer.

The Dawning 2019 will offer rewards in exchange of freshly baked goodies. Turn those in and there's a ship-shaped package as well as a Sparrow in it for you. This year will see some brand new gifts and items you may have missed last year. Avalanche, anyone?

Ships and Sparrows aren't the only things you can obtain by trading in your culinary creations. This year you can get a high-damage, high-recoil Cold Front submachine gun for your troubles, and as they say "you can’t bake a Submachine Gun." If they don't say that, they definitely should. 

There will be weekly and repeatable Dawning bounties that will award you with Bright dust and give you more sources of this currency for new items on the Eververse storefront. There's also a new portal on the Seasons page that grants access to your Season Pass rewards track. Any items you earned will be available to claim, even if a season has ended.

Steps for success:

  • Ensure you have available in-game inventory space, and at least 10 slots available at your postmaster
  • Sign in to, or sign in to the Destiny Companion App
  • Head on over
  • Select your platform and character
  • Pick up any items that you’re missing
  • Rinse and repeat for any alternate characters that may have missed their items

Once you're done with baking cookies and collecting items, you can head on over to Tess. There you can strap on your skates, dress up your Ghost, then bundle up in the new Northlight armour ornaments and feel the warmth of the Light. Aren't the holidays just pure fun?! And microtransactions, but mostly fun.

The Dawning will go live on 17 December 2019 and end on 14 January 2020 at 5:00 pm GMT.
