Need a break from the traditional holiday-themed television specials flooding the airwaves? Check out a whole new holiday: Hearth’s Warming Eve, from this weekend’s episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic.
(Spoiler alert: Minor plot points revealed in the text and video.)
In the exclusive clip above from Saturday’s episode, baby dragon Spike introduces the Hearth’s Warming Eve pageant and teases out a little bit of detail about the origin of the ponies’ home, Equestria.
Apparently, there was discord between the pegasi, the unicorns and the Earth ponies in the days before Equestria. Those differences had to be overcome to found the place where they’ve found their magic friendship. The episode promises to be a big hit for pony historians everywhere.
And in the spirit of giving back this holiday season, pony fans have started a Humble Brony Bundle — a fundraiser to buy a Humble Indie Bundle, a special pack of indie games sold DRM-free, with proceeds going to to support indie gaming and organizations like Child’s Play and the American Red Cross.
Happy holidays, everypony.
My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic airs Saturdays at 10 a.m. Eastern/7 a.m. Pacific on the Hub TV network.
