.. bah humbug, not! ..

One of the most interesting and detailed finds at the December round of The Arcade Gacha Event is the Humbug Christmas gacha from DRD which features Ebenezer Scrooge’s house and furnishings.  I love the detail and the suggestion of seriousness that the house holds.

“There are some upon this earth of yours,’ returned the Spirit,
‘who lay claim to know us, and who do their deeds of
passion, pride, ill-will, hatred, envy, bigotry, and selfishness in our name;
who are as strange to us and all our kith and kin, as if they had never lived.
Remember that, and charge their doings on themselves, not us.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“I will live in the past, the present, and the future.
The spirits of all three shall strive within me.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things,
that while there is infection in disease and sorrow,
there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

“I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath;
and making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings.
“I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I
am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man.
A merry Christmas to every-body!
A happy New Year to all the world!
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol

“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well,
if any man alive possessed the knowledge.
May that be truly said of us, and all of us!
And so, as Tiny Tim observed,
God bless Us, Every One!
― Charles Dickens, “A Christmas Carol”

.. winter @ the arcade ..

The Arcade Gacha December round opens to all in just a few hours.  So much cuteness for this round with so many creators bringing cute wintry and holiday themed items.  Lots of fun and lots of ways to part with your lindens.  Take a look at the shopping guide and make your lists now!   And as you gather “all the things”, don’t forget that once again there is a photography contest. While you are at The Arcade, also check out the packages under the tree. It is “season for giving” and some of the creators might have left a gift for you there.  Tonight, I selected a few items that I wanted to share…
