.. in the coldest winter ..

 

I wander forth this chill December dawn:
John Frost and all his elves are out, I see,
As busy as the elfin world can be,
Clothing a world asleep with fleecy lawn.

We are just around the corner from the next round of The Arcade Gacha Shopping Event.  The December round is always one of my favorites because so much of the focus is on Christmas and holiday activities, winter fun, decor and all. The designers put their fingers to the bone and bring some awesome items that you will want to collect to decorate your home, your avatar and your surroundings.  Another good thing about The Arcade in December is that it opens with plenty of time to do ALL your Christmas shopping with everything so easily transferrable!  Take a look at the Shopping Guide and plan on just how you will spend your lindens!
