The Christmas Expo

The Christmas Expo is open! The regions look absolutely gorgeous dressed for winter. The shops are reminiscent of a village setting in some parts and in others the urban streets of a fashion city. This year there are roaming horse carriages so if you get tired you can take a relaxing tour all around the four sims.

The shops are filled with not only decor for your sim or home but wonderful outfits for this season and any other where you hang out for warmth. There will be events all week This is a event to raise money for the Relay For Life of the American Cancer Society. After shopping you can stop over to the attached region for the Society that is chuck full of information about the work being done all over the globe to end the threat of cancer once and for all.

Be sure to stop over to Santa’s site to have your picture taken with him. He will be in his char at the top of every hour with his elves hanging out and then you might find him anywhere on the regions roaming and taking requests for gifts. 

“Pick your spot in the snowman building area and start rolling that snow.  Simple, fancy, classic, wild… it is up to you what you do with your 30 prims.You have from Dec 1 – 5 to build your snowman, voting is held December 7 – 11  and winners are announced on Sunday, Dec 11, 2016, 1pm SLT  at a special party in the Snowman Building area featuring live singer Suzen Juel Resistance.There are 2 categories –  Judges Picks and the Popular Vote, which is determined by donations to the Relay For Life Kiosk beside your snowman. 100% proceeds goes to Relay For Life of Second Life.” There were a myriad of fun Santas last year , some not so traditional, so be as creative as you like!

Be sure to look for ‘Stocking stuffers’ that have gifts from the merchants. There are raffles, auctions, gotchas and so much more. The christmas Tree lot has some wonderful trees for your home. The Breedables Auction will be s silent auction which is a new approach this year.  Don‘t miss the Advent wreath by the Winter Cafe where the many parties will be taking place.

“Winter Writers Story Contest: Join us on a literary journey this Christmas Expo with the Winter Writing Contest. The contest will feature two branches- Poetry and Story-Telling. You are invited to write a small story or poem within a Winter theme that may relate to your experience with cancer. You may choose to write about a survivor, a journey of treatment, a memorial to a loved and lost one, or whatever your heart and fingers tell you to express.  “
There is a form to use with all the directions on the website .   This website has a list of all the performers and the venues to enjoy them. It is always fun everywhere on the regions so get over there soon. A big Thanks to the Sponsors of the Event ! Say hi if you see me around the sims. I am Santa’s Elf and Helper. This is a good place to start your tour  at the landmark giver !
