"Day of the Dead" Party in Exmoor
One would expect a "Day of the Dead" party and ponies to be an odd mix. But that's what happened on Sunday November 1 at the Nissan pony community. At a dance stage in the Exmoor sim, a number of locals, friends of, and a few visitors, dropped in for a party to celebrate the "Dia De Los Muertos" event.
The ghosts of the past gather with the living, the stream is running. It's time to party and celebrate our ancestral dead and the fact we've all made it through another year with the winter ahead (or summer). There are some tricks and treats too. Come dance and take part in costume competition in theme with our holiday. Some $L prizes are at stake. Shake dem bones!
$1000 Lindens was awarded to the lucky winner of the costume contest. Later in the day, there would be a reading of ghost tales in the Trosdale Library a few sims away. Other locations in Second Life would also hold "Day of the Dead" events, such as the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum.
