How to participate in ESO's Holiday Events?

During the event period, the Crown Store offers special items that must be used to trigger a special quest. Completing the quest will grant a unique buff allowing players to obtain special items through activities in Tamriel.

Some of the events are PvP-centric, and require access to DLC content such as the Imperial City or Morrowind's Battlegrounds.
