I Wish You Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year! – Ryan Schultz

When Linden Lab announced the launch of their Ranch-style homes this past June, I immediately upgraded my main male avatar, Heath Homewood, to Premium Plus, and snapped up this lovely house! (Heath is the one who owns most of the home and garden decor, dating back to when I first owned land in the then-brand-new Bay City neighbourhood. I joke that he is my walking storage shed!)

Over the fall and into the winter, I slowly and lovingly landscaped the exterior and decorated the interior, until I had a virtual space that I felt truly reflected me.

The Ranch Linden Home regions are richly landscaped and full of nice little touches. If you look closely at this picture, you can see the blue birds sitting on the telephone wires, in the foreground, above the house!

I have often strolled (or rode horseback!) through the new Ranch Linden Home regions, and I do have to hand it to Linden Lab—they did a superb job! And it is so interesting to see how other people have chosen to decorate their homes.

In between looting, pillaging, and ransacking the various Advent calendars and 12 Days of Christmas calendars in Second Life, I did find a bit of time this morning to decorate my new ranch home for the holiday season. I hung stockings by the fireplace, set up my favourite Christmas tree, and set out a nativity crèche which reminds me of one we used to have in my real-life childhood home.

I never bother decorating my real-life apartment for Christmas any more; instead I choose to decorate my Second Life home! (Makes cleanup in January a snap, too…a few clicks and we’re done! 😜)
The Christmas cabinet on the left is a free Advent calendar gift from LouChara (Dec. 17th), and it includes the cards, candles, and lamp. Next to it, the holly accent chair is part of a lovely dining room set from the Advent calendar at Petrichor (Dec. 20th), and it only cost me L$1! The nativity crèche figurines I picked up for only L$35 at Celestina’s Weddings Advent calendar (Dec. 7th); they have little seasonal knicknacks and tchotchkes perched on top of their daily Advent calendar gift boxes, which you can purchase!
Here’s an evening view of my ranch house living room, decorated for Christmas. Silent Night!

Happy Holidays to all of you and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
