I'd almost forgotten how well the tinies in SL do Christmas and the holidays until I popped into Raglan Shire today. This is a fun explore whether a tiny or biggy. The landing puts you by their Christmas tree and as the tinies are known for being generous the tree is loaded with gifts that can get you more than set up as a tiny, and it's near the welcome center that provides a lot of things to also help you be "tiny ready" or just to understand more about them, the sims, and newsy related info. I was surprised how large the area looked, but then I always am when I visit, so I asked and was told the whole of Raglan Shire is 7 sims. The tinies also have an adorable caroling group.
Raglan Shire has dancing, skiing, train rides, sledding, skating and many things to play on, see and do. There are also a lot of shops with cute things to buy or get. One of the tinies told me being a tiny is like being a kid, only as a tiny animal. They are playful, generous, friendly. The locals have their own sort of language and even the dj had a "tiny" voice. The music has a lot of special songs that are tiny specific and I even heard a special song by Gina Stella - "Waffleujah". Yes, they love waffles and all kinds of foods ; ) There is a huge variety of tiny avatars around SL to choose from and it's usually a good mix of small animals but they wear clothes and talk tiny.
I'm a when in Rome type person in SL, so I donned my tiny penguin and last year's holiday dress and joined in the dancing. Raglan Shire, where the tinies play!
I thought the tinies have been in SL forever or at least as long as I have. Karmagirl Avro advised me the shire was established in 2007. She is a good example of how the tinies can accessorize
with the best of them as evidenced by her Christmas tree hat, gingerbread house she was carrying in one hand and tiny piggy in the other and Christmas light strings wrapped around her. Party on, I say! Winterfest is upon us.
