White Christmas in Second Life

20151220 Galadhon Christmas_013It’s the season again. In the real world we rarely get white christmas, and at least in Europe we know by now that we won’t get snow for christmas in 2015. But in Second Life we can get the snow and white christmas. It is a particular regularly fun to enjoy the season in Second Life. Everyone decorates houses and sims, we can powder our virtual world with snow and make large ice areas for skating. And it is not the first time that we visited Calas Galadhon Park to enjoy the season. In fact this has become a regular event for us and it is getting even better every year. When you arrive at White Christmas you’ll be immediately in winter wonderworld. Just follow the path from the landing area and you’ll reach the place where you can take a sleigh tour through the sim. There’re sleighs for 4 persons and for 2 persons (the cuddling tour). Jenny and I visited together with slave Flo, hence we took the 4 persons sleigh. The tour is simply wonderful. There’s a lot to discover, everything is elaborated very detailled.

The sleigh tour ends at the christmas pavillion, where you’re dropped off. In front of the pavillion is a large ice skating area and it was quite busy when we visited. There’re a lot of spots to sit and watch and to discover more details, like the sleeping bear. At this time sklavin Gebby came online. We bought her a christmas dress and continued with the balloon ride, which is the second main part of this year’s installation. The starting of the balloon ride is close to the christmas pavillion, just follow the signs.

The balloon provides space for 4 persons, so just perfect for us. You can select among several poses and thus Jenny and I had a lot of cuddling time. The views over winterland and to the mountains are breathtaking, just fantastic and I couldn’t stop from taking pictures.  In total I took 66 pictures and now I do have the hard work of selecting the best.

While the balloon rises higher and higher the views become spectacular. You’ll fly above the clouds and if you’re lucky you might get a glimpse on Santa and his rendeers. We were lucky and saw him 🙂

Our tour ended with a visit at Santa’s workshop. You should plan at least one hour for your visit of White Christmas, but there’s enough to see and do for a whole night. There’s also a description in Inara Pey’s Living in a Modemworld blog “A Calas White Christmas in Second Life“. Please find the link also below. Thank you, Ty Tenk and Truck Meredith, owners of Calas Galadhon Park sims for their great work and for providing this beautiful sim to all of us! We enjoyed our visit a lot.
