And your point is?
They can PR all day long about how many teams they have...until now lots of players are still waiting for them to actually get something meaningful done about the game.
Anet still can't properly restore characters/accounts, some classes only halfway working, guilds are about meaningless, no bot detection in place (instead they DR regular players left and right), characters still skating, ability delay, little to zero communication with the community (and that is going via 3rd party sites like facebook) etc etc.
So yes, it's great that they have like 10 teams set up....but when is any of them actually starting to get stuff done? Or does every team consist of 3 guys only?

Well kinda little of both...at least gauging by the holidays in GW1. The major holidays are usually based around the same times as real world holidays and typically reflect some aspects of those real holidays in game. However, these in game holidays usually have some significant in-game lore to give the in-game holidays their own flair.
For example, the 1st GW2 holiday will be Mad King's Day which is meant to reflect the real world holiday of Halloween. It's based around the return of an powerful human spirit (who when living was one of the kings of Kryta) to Tyria from his quasai prison in the Mad Realm (a part of the Underworld). It'll most likely have special decorations in some of the main cities (most likely Lions Arch and maybe Divinity's Reach), sweets, costumes, and mini games. Then you've got Wintersday that is held around the time of our real world winter holiday's occur. This one might not return in much the way it did in GW1 because it was strongly based on the human gods (mostly around Grenth wanting the world to stay frozen longer and Dwayna wanting sring to return so that Tyria could be reborn). Another holiday is Canthan New Year which is held around the real world chinese new year and celebrates the coming of the celestials which are celestial animals based on the chinese zodiac.
So long as its not Christmas in Tyria.
