Stories from Second Life
Christmas 2012 - Fun At Jamaica Inn
Times are hard for a lot of people this year and that also includes how much they can spend in Second Life, so I decided on a ‘bargains for all’ Christmas shop with nothing over 20L$, plus a few free gifts scattered around the sim. I called my gift shop ’Not a Priority’ as Christmas decorations aren’t a priority in SL or real life if you haven’t got much money to spare, but at least people will be able to put up some decs in their virtual homes at a low cost. I looked around the other Christmas themed virtual places and there are some brilliant designers out there. I visited Christmas at the House of Avro, where I got a lovely Santa for my display. I built an ice mountain and Santa sits in the cave entrance waiting to give people gifts. Hib has a Santa too, so people can pick up double the amount of free gifts. Hib also has an advent calendar, which gives out some smashing presents!
I enjoyed creating my little dance floor and we have music from the North Pole Radio station playing in the sim. It really adds to the atmosphere, so people can come and dance the night away. There’s also a classy virtual restaurant, a really pleasant place to catch a bite to eat, you can even treat yourself to a slice of cake (no calories involved!).
We are having lots of fun with our own special ‘Christmas 2012 Fun in Jamaica Inn’ and everyone is welcome! If you see us playing Greedy come and join in! Forget about the horrible real life weather, the worry of shopping and the state of the economy, log into SL and enjoy!
We are featured in the Destination Guide with all the other beautiful Christmas sims, so come along and explore!
