Earlier today Duncan and I went to check out the recently opened Christmas sim at Calas Galadhon. As in the previous years, the place looks wonderful and is a must during the holiday season in SL.
After touring the grounds, we spent some time getting warm at the Pavillion.
And then we jumped into one of the hot air balloons which (eventually) took us high up, all the way to the North Pole and Santa's village. An important note: make sure you have enough time and are in no hurry, as the journey itself lasts quite a bit, over half an hour.
I'm not sure where all the Santa's little helpers went, but it seems they've already finished preparing all the gifts.
It's an adorable place and a perfect way to spend some time inworld. To visit, follow this SLurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Lost%20Stars/233/245/23
