Highlights from the Second Life Destination Guide 12/09/2016
Oh, cold weather outside can be frightful, but in Second Life, it can also be so delightful — and if you’re looking for someplace to go — SL snow, SL snow, SL snow!
Second Life Residents really know how to dress things up for the holidays. From soft, fluffy piles of freshly driven snow to galaxies of twinkling lights, you can’t deny the charming and talent-showcasing builds that reminds us of what is so magical about this time of year.
Cozy on up with a couple of friends, wrap up in that cute winter coat, and dive into drifts made by our Destination Guide trailblazers — tidying up those snow banks so that you can simply enjoy the sights.
Please share your festive wintery pics to the official Second Life Flickr.
If you’ve built something great that isn’t in the Destination Guide, write us a note at email@example.com or please submit your spot via form. Cookies and milk are appreciated, but not necessary!
