What's planned for the 1st Anniversary celebrations?

Star Wars: The Old Republic will be 1 year old on December 20th and what's on my mind is how will BioWare/EA/LucasArts be celebrating it?

Perhaps both Makeb and the Cathar will finally be made available? New items available on the Cartel Market? Maybe the developers will reveal new information about Varl, Lehon/Rakata Prime and/or Oricon?

Like what Star Wars Galaxies did every year, they could release an exclusive SWTOR Anniversary logo. There could also be a single piece of exclusive merchandise like concept art posters or a commemorative badge although the latter may be a bit expensive to produce.

What are your thoughts on the 1 year anniversary and what would you like to see happen?
If you'd like to see more Explorable Worlds in Star Wars: The Old Republic,
then head to this thread and discuss, list and vote which you'd like to see and explore in the game:

I wouldn't mind seeing Empire Day/Remembrance Day celebrated.

Yes, I'm sorry folks, but Star Wars is littered with Canonical holidays that correspond with their real-life counterparts. Don't like it? Don't play a Star Wars MMO.

Unless they changed their mind, in beta they were strongly against in game holidays.

They will probably give everyone 100 free cartel points, release some new items in the grab bags and call it a day.
James Ohlen: " For 2012 we really want players to feel like they're getting their money's worth. You're going to see so many changes and additions to the Star Wars Universe. It's going to be impressive. We have our Update 1.2 coming in the next week and then after that it's going to continue to roll out month after month. It's exciting."

Not if the event/holiday already exists in the Star Wars canon.

Here are a whole heap which would be acceptable:

Does their anniversary fall on the same day or week or month as a cannon holiday for this time period?

I don't know.

Just saying that they were really against holidays, even a lot of the cannon ones, during beta. I never subbed after beta so not sure if that mindset changed.

These were only celebrated during the Galatic Empire/Rebellion years. These holidays are not part of the Old Republic Era.

An event where we reflect on past accomplishments, perhaps a way to replay our story.

A ceasefire event where we can hang out on each others fleets for a day.

An expansion announced.
