So here is Vanity Fair in A Victorian Christmas, amidst the gently falling snowflakes on a London evening in the time of Queen Victoria. Smoke wafts gently from the chimneys. The shop windows are bright with Christmas decorations, children’s toys, and enticing food.
The best part is you can turn the candles and the star atop the big Christmas tree on and off using chat commands! You can also adjust the brightness of the lights by adding a number to the /on command. (Try typing /off and /on 1 and /on 15 in chat to see how it works.)
From Victorian London, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This is a list of the various Christmas events which are taking place this holiday season on the various social VR platforms and virtual worlds I cover on this blog. If you have an event that I have missed, please let me know and I will update this listing, thanks!
As usual, there is so much happening in Second Life around Christmastime that it is impossible to compile a full list!
Your best bet is to check the Events listing under Search; you can do a keyword search, or select events using the drop-down category menu in the upper right-hand corner of the Events window in Firestorm (for example, “Live Music” to catch a live performer’s show).
The official Second Life Destination Guide lists eight pages worth of winter attractions to visit.
Among many other club events happening throughout Second Life over the holidays, Bryce Sun is DJing on Christmas Day at the FMD Club, which bills itself “the premiere destination for Second Life’s sexiest and most fashionable residents”.
Please check the Sansar Events page for more details on these and other events during this holiday season.
Check the AltspaceVR Events Listing for all the news on what’s going on, including four separate VR Church Christmas services on Dec. 22nd: one at a time zone for Australians, a second at a time zone for Europeans, and two back-to-back services for North Americans.
The best place to find out what Christmas events are happening in the busy world of VRChat is the VRChat Events website, with an online calendar of events, and a link to join the VRChat Events Discord server.
Also, there is a brand new Winter category in the Worlds menu in VRChat, with places for you to explore!
VRChat is also home to the annual New Years Times Square, where you could run into just about anybody! It is described as a developer-made world with hundreds of posters from the VRChat community.
My source, Fionna, also tells me:
I will be hosting an event for the world builder community on New Year’s Eve as well, featuring a world made by Sentinel, which is a gorgeous Art Deco lounge.
Medra, an organizer of the NeosVR Creator Jam series of events in NeosVR, posted:
The holidays are almost upon us and the 30th Creator Jam…so it’s time for:
Creator Jam 30: 3rd Megajam & Winter Holiday Party
Sunday December 22nd Starts at 2 p.m. EST(11 a.m. PST/19:00 UTC).
As an anniversary and Holiday celebration come hang out exchanging gifts, dressing up, and voting on Christmas trees. This will be a party and Swap Meet. NeosVR is wonderful for people unloading their inventories. What a better way to be in the spirit of giving than for people to share what they have or made. If you have a cool avatar, share it! If you have a cool gadget, please share. Pack neat Logix snippets in adult beverages or prezzies. We will be be exploring all the previous nine Creator Jam worlds in a livestream with Nexulan.
Secret Santa gift exchange will be held during this party at 2:30 p.m. EST (11:30 a.m. PST/19:30 UTC) Even if you aren’t a part of the Secret Santa gift exchange feel free to give gifts to specific people or everyone.
Everyone is welcome. I look forward to seeing all!
