The holiday season arrived in the London sims on Wednesday when the Christmas lights outside the Underground Club in Knightsbridge were turned on. A large, festively dressed crowd was present when Katrin Linden, wearing a beautiful cloak appropriate for the occasion, threw the switch illuminating the Christmas lights. She said “It is an honour for me that I was invited to open the official winter fest for London in SL. All members that help building up London do a great job and it is wonderful to see what you have done during the last weeks. So to bring light into the midnight ;))) it is an honour to turn on the lights for you. Have a very great winter time and Christmas time all :).”
Katrin was joined by Claudia Linden who wished everyone a happy winter fest. Brie Jannick thanked the Lindens for coming to SL London to officially open the holiday season and Debs Regent wished everyone a happy winter. A street party followed, including a contest for the best multi-coloured outfit
Not only were the streets ablaze with lights, but also with the brilliantly coloured outfits of the avatars dancing the night away. The prize for best multi-coloured outfit was hotly contested and ended in a split decision with andis Braveheart and Skyy Seelowe being declared as winners. Skyy wore an outfit made up of psychedelically coloured plaid squares, while andis was dressed in a jester’s outfit covered in yellow, green and purple diamonds.
Despite the usual SL difficulties the event was a great success and kicked off what is sure to be a lively and exciting holiday season in the London sims. Congratulations to all the organizers.
