I’ll be home for Christmas…

By Morghana Savira – Fashion Dream in SL. Visit I’ll be home for Christmas… for original post.

I’m dreaming tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it’s a long road back
I promise you

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents by the tree

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams

I’ll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have some snow and mistletoe
And presents by the tree

Christmas eve will find me
Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
If only in my dreams

A Mystical Christmas in Second Life

By – webspelunker – My Travels Across Second Life. Visit A Mystical Christmas in Second Life for original post.

Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more! 

Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

It’s that time of the year again.

We wonder where the past year has gone…

We look forward to the winter solstice

And, with of all of this, some of us look forward to Christmas!

(I reassure Significant Other that a certain list has been received.)

In Second Life (SL), Christmas is very much alive just as in Real Life (RL).

But, perhaps, no more so than in Mieville where the indefatigable Perryn Peterson, its Mayor, and his elves have been pulling extra shifts to get ready for the Christmas Holiday inworld!   

In Christmases past, Mieville has been host to A Christmas Carol, an Elizabethan Christmas with a frozen River Thames, and a winter wonderland to name but a few themes.   

Perryn and his band of merry elves have not been lacking for ideas for this year’s Christmas. 

Its theme is Mystic Yule which as Perryn puts it is, “A full sim of snowy, forested, magical, faerie Christmas and Yule delights!”  (The man does have a way with words!)
And, it’s all waiting for you to come and enjoy!

There is much to see and do as always!

Visitors will be able to visit merchants in over one hundred booths and wagons peruse their goods.  There’ll be entertainment, gachas, ice skating, dancing, food and drinks, and much more! 

And, of course, don’t forget the new and improved mini-hunt where each merchant will have a surprise gift hidden in their establishment for shoppers to try and find. 

Mieville wouldn’t be Mieville without new and magical attractions.

This year has almost all new buildings, gorgeous landscaping by Mike Olbracht,

beautiful dance area, wintery rides and the Wizard’s Tower!  (Hint: Which you can find your way out of by following the “down” doors which are clearly marked!)    

Perryn and his crew wanted to do something faerie-like and mysterious, home in on the mystical nature of Christmas, and to cater to their large fantasy following.

They’ve outdone themselves as usual!

(Yes, admittedly, I’m biased.  But, given the wonderful experiences which Perryn and his team produce consistently for their visitors, I think I’m entitled!)

I heartily recommend visiting Mystic Yule in Mieville which runs from December 1st to January 1stand can be located here! 

Maybe you’ll even run into me there!

I’d like to thank Perryn and his elves for another wonderful seasonal event and for

assisting me in preparing this story for all my loyal readers!  (All three of you!) 

I’d also like to thank The Companion who took all the beautiful photos used in this story and the others which can be found on this flickr page. 

Happy Holidays to all from Significant Other and me! 

As always, I’m grateful to all inworld for their kindness and time in stopping to talk with a stranger who was passing through their lives. 

My Twitter handle is @webspelunker.  Please feel free to follow me and I’d be happy to follow you.

I can be found on Google+ as webspelunker Ghostraven.

            Open roads and kind fires!

Christmas Expo RFL – Frost by Tiffany Designs

By – Perceptions Sita Writer. Visit Christmas Expo RFL – Frost by Tiffany Designs for original post.

Every once in awhile a gown is made that will become a favorite — because it is perfect for any occasion from a royal ball to a courtly dance… and I have found this gown at the Christmas Expo RFL that runs through December 12.  This gown is simply called Frost is by Tiffany Designs and is an absolute stunner. Frost can be found in the Holiday Exchange area.

Frost is sleek and sexy all at the same time! The skirt is elegantly textured in layers of glimmering crystals that is magical.  The white  cord band at the waist defines this gown and gives it dimension and allure.

What makes this gown really a stand out is the gorgeous jeweled wings done in an elaborate Greek Key pattern that reminds me of ice wings… they are elegant and not overdone… they are perfect making Frost a must have gown for the winter season. Frost also comes with a lovely diamond necklace that adds another layer of elegance to the look.

This gown is far from boring and traditional with its’ deep sweetheart cut neckline and alluring winter wings… the skin tight belted bodice and a flowing straight skirt that  falls to the floor.. it will surely catch every eye on the grid.. When my beloved Mr. X saw me  in Frost, he said I melted his heart!

Christmas Party Preparations

By – Aerlinniel’s Wolftracks. Visit Christmas Party Preparations for original post.

 Feeling like a snow princess in my new gown, I looked about the house, not sure where to start in decorating, but wanted it to feel festive. Most of the party would be outside, of course, but I put in a new couch set and hung a wreath on the wall to brighten up the spot a bit.

Visitors and guests will be able to shop for holiday gifts, take photographs with Santa, participate in the Stocking Stuffer Hunt and so much more!

I am a little behind the game on this one – this post should have been up yesterday but something dreadful was happening with my graphics card and the onboard fan completely quit causing my whole world to nearly cook itself to circuitry mush! Forgive me for that and let’s talk about the SL Christmas Expo. SLURL: *here’s your ride*

sl-christmas-expo-2016-home-for-the-holidays sl-christmas-expo-2016-promotional-ad
Christmas is a time for giving, for sharing, for remembering the things that matter and sharing all the love. It’s a time for families and friends to gather ’round the tree or table or even just the webcams (because some of us are simply too far away to hold hands and kiss under that sweet mistletoe) no matter how you do it – it’s a a special time of the year and this event has been organized for those reasons – sharing and giving – as well as giving back. The SL Christmas Expo is just one of the many events in SL raising funds for Relay for Life, an ongoing fundraiser hosted by The American Cancer Society who really need all of the help they can get because if we’re going to beat this thing – we’re going to need a lot more research and development in the field to really show Cancer who’s boss.

That’s where we come in – we can visit this expo and others like it – buy a gorgeous gift for that special someone, someone you care about or admire, or even just because! Several items hosted are on “100% donation” meaning that the full proceeds will go to RFL and several other items are being offered with other levels of donation percentages. We’d like thank each and every creator who has taken time to participate in this incredibly important event and we’d like to invite you to come visit the expo, see the gorgeous little Christmas town the decorator elves have erected for your pleasure, purchase some delightful little thing for yourself or someone you love or even just drop a donation in one of the many boxes marked for you onsite.

“100% Original Mesh & Materials. Seats 4 with my original handmade high quality Male & Female Solo sit plus Couples Cuddle (pg) animations. Sofa, 2 Chairs, 2 Lamps, 3 Tables & Pillows are all Only 1 Li as pictured!

We’ve all been touched by Cancer in some way – be it someone you know – a friend, coworker, the lady who wraps your bread and always has a kind word, or someone you love – a parent, sibling, your child or spouse or life partner, maybe even you. Cancer doesn’t discriminate and that’s why we need to come together and fight together to find a cure and hopefully, one day cancer will be nothing more than a scary entry in the old history books but for now – we can help, we can make a difference!
