On Friday, December 3rd, Linden Lab announced the core Lab-supported / provided winter / Christmas seasonal events for 2021 in Second Life.
Winter Wonderland and Annual Snowball Fight
As usual, headlining the season is the re-opening of the Winter Wonderland regions. These bring with them the familiar Village of Lights, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice-skating, snowy walks and more. Plus, as always the snowball fight arena, open for casual and group games – and, of course, the annual Lindens (and Moles vs. residents snowball fights.
The latter will take place over two sessions on Friday, December 17th, the first at 10:00-11:00 SLT and 14:00-15:00 SLT.
To participate in snowball fights, be sure to read and accept the experience.
This year, gifts are available through two options:
- The Winter Swaginator Hunt: running through until the end of December 2021, the Swagniator Hunt is offering four limited edition Linden Bears. Open to everyone, but grab the HUD and follow the clues in local chat.
- The 2021 Winter Premium gift: available via the Premium Gift kiosks, Premium members can obtain a bicycle gift that could well come in handy for exploring summer venues in 2022 and beyond.
