Posada 2016 on Norgaard Island

Over the previous several years, I've had the pleasure of being one of the hosts of Posada. In Second Life, it's an Advent season event initiated by the Anglican Cathedral in SL, in which the figures of Mary and Joseph travel from host to host until they complete their Advent journey.

It's always a bit unpredictable how it would work out, as there are quite a few hosts, and setting times that would work for everyone isn't easy. Posada handover at my place was scheduled for 7th December at 2pm SLT and I expected only a brief exchange with the previous host, in presence of a few friends. 

The handover began on the grounds of the Presbyterian Church in SL. It took a while and I was wondering who would be waiting for us back home on Norgaard Island.


As it turned out, quite a few people showed up, friends old and new, waiting to see the Posada display. My friend Duncan took a few very nice photos:






We had a lot of fun, goofing around, trying out funny gestures and such. It was well past midnight local time that I logged off.

The following day, Posada had to move on to the next host, Paul Stephen.


Paul placed the figures on the boats close by his island home.


And so the Posada continues, with handovers every day until Christmas Day. To get the schedule, feel free to contact me inworld and I'll IM you the current version in a notecard.

Also, even although Posada left the Island, it has been replaced by a Nativity display that will stay there for the next few weeks. You'll find it at a small Christmas square where you can also get mulled wine, eggnog and other treats. You're welcome to visit at this SLurl
