According to past datamining,
Diablo's 20th Anniversary Celebration
should start on January 4th! We have datamined a lot of updates:

, and continually gave currency (
Due to the interaction of some of these items, it seems like we'll be collecting town portal scrolls to make a toy. The existence of a Stone of Jordan also seems to indicate a Diablo-related vendor to whom you can turn them in, possibly for the Guitar toy and the bag.
