- “The six friends are in a play about the founding of Equestria for the Hearth's Warming Eve's holiday pageant.” (Zap2it)
- “In ‘Hearth’s Warming Eve’ the six friends are honored to put on Canterlot's most important play of the season, the Hearth’s Warming Eve’s holiday pageant that illustrates how Unicorns, Pegasi and Earth Ponies put aside their differences and founded Equestria.” (Discovery Press Web via EQD)
For some reason it says episode 13 on the Zap2it page. The date is as expected, though.
Yay! For the third time faster than Equestria Daily! But don’t fret, ponies, I’ll submit it in just a moment.
Update 2011-11-19 10:54Z: Here the subsequent Equestria Daily post.
Update 2011-11-20 11:39Z: According to layout artist Nayuki on Allspark, it seems The Hub has decided to bump episode 13 ahead of 11 and 12, perhaps so it can air before Christmas despite all the gaps, but that is my conjecture. Thanks to the awesome Derpy Hooves News for the heads up!
Update 2011-12-04 10:14Z: Added second synopsis.
Update 2011-12-10 17:55Z: I posted these clips that are probably from Hearth’s Warming Eve. (Update added later.)

Update 2011-12-14 16:41Z: Equestria Daily has posted a list of SWF vectors that are used as assets in the newest iteration of Hasbro’s Castle Creator game. The images look like they are from Hearth’s Warming Eve. One image of Derpy Hooves has the file name “MLP_CharW_DH_definitely_canon.swf.” What a treat!
