December 25, 2008
Technically, this is not my ‘first’ Christmas in SL. I rezzed in world for the first time last December 18th, so although I was ‘here’, I didn’t really experience Christmas in Second Life, because I was too new. I didn’t know hardly anyone yet, and I was still hanging out in the newbie areas because I didn’t know what else was out there. In fact, I don’t remember anything about Christmas day in SL last year. I assume I logged in, but probably just for a short time and then left without seeing anyone or doing anything.
This year though, has been so much different. I’ve been in world for just over a year now. I’ve gotten to see the seasons change, I’ve gotten to experience all the holidays celebrations as they have unfolded. From Halloween through Thanksgiving, and this whole month leading up to Christmas. I noticed, the first time I started to see snow appear on some sims. I noticed the first Christmas trees and holiday decorations.
I used to hate Christmas. Yeah, it kind of sucks to say that, but its been true for years! Christmas lost a lot of magic for me once I was old enough to be out on my own. Christmas is usually a lonely and stressful time for me. I suck at finding presents, and the combination of not driving much (phobia), procrastination and not a lot of money takes a lot of the joy out of the holidays.
This year though, has been very different. I’ve had so much fun watching the month long buildup all December as Christmas and New Years approaches.. everyone has been in high spirits, everywhere I look I see snow, Christmas trees and menorahs, holidays cards and gifts are being exchanged, all my friends are happy. And so am I. And its been so great to be able to share Christmas with Keeme. That guy makes me laugh and lights up my life in so many ways.
Speaking of that! I had such a wonderful surprise on my rezday, and then an even BIGGER one a couple of days later. I didn’t even know that many people knew it was my rezday on the 18th, but Keeme put together a really sweet rezday party for me that night. He TP’d me in and when I saw some of my friends gathered together on Podcast Island, I was SO touched. I thought that was completely sweet, and it really made my night. He kept apologizing later on for it being so small and ‘lame’, but I thought it was wonderful! I just felt bad that he kept beating himself up over it, needlessly.
A couple of nights later he came online and said he wanted to show me some yardsale places, because he was thinking of starting a new blog related to outdoor home items. I was all into it and was about to start pulling landmarks out of my inventory of different places he should check, LOL. He said he wanted to show me another place he had been to earlier, and sent me a TP. The destination said “Yard Sale $$$”, but when I took the teleport.. I landed at the Destination Station on Podcast Island.. surrounded by tons of my friends! I really can’t tell you how shocked and surprised I was. That completely blew me away- I was NOT expecting any sort of party for my rezday. Not to mention a double/fake out surprise party! Keeme showed me this notecard he had been sending out. It made me laugh so much, because I didn’t think the first one was ‘lame’, at all!
