Well, it's that time of year again. Days are shorter and colder, snow is falling, and a feeling of joy and goodwill toward one's fellow gamer fills the air. That's right, it's time for Steam's Winter Sale!

The date for the sale was initially leaked by a Twitter account that also correctly revealed the dates of the Autumn and Halloween Sales, though the tweet has been deleted since then.

Valve officially announced the sale today, and you can find those incredible annual deals starting tomorrow, December 20th. If you're worried about being strapped for cash thanks to holiday shopping, don't worry. You'll be able to take advantage of these deals for two weeks.

Steam's Winter Sale will last from tomorrow all the way to January 3rd, meaning you can ring in the new year with a bevy of interesting titles you haven't had a chance to get your hands on yet.
