Love is What’s in the Room With You at Christmas if You Stop Opening Presents and Listen

…Merry Christmas, darling
We’re apart, that’s true
But I can dream and in my dreams
I’m Christmas-ing with you…

Our Christmas TogetherMy family has had the tradition of having Chinese food for Christmas Eve dinner for over 40 years. So when I saw the Not So X-mas Dinner that Le Primtif had in their gacha machine at The Arcade I knew it was a must have set for me. Lucky for me the machine was very nice to me and all I had to get on my own through trading was the fried rice. After all, what’s Chinese food without the fried rice?

When I mentioned my family tradition to Rid, he said the two of us would have to have our own Christmas in SL with Chinese food thus the idea emerged for the pic above. After some adjusting of poses and singing silly (and sometimes naughty) versions of Christmas songs while snapping a few (dozen) pics we finally got to sit down to watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation together (one of my Christmas faves/traditions  – and his too). I love holiday traditions – especially when I get to share them with people who mean a lot to me.

The other pic I took  (below) because I wanted to do a wintery one with pieces I got from various sets from The Arcade and for an entry to their photo contest. I grabbed stuff from Trompe Loeil, 8f8, Junk, my rare chaise from Erratic and a couple other things and used them to set a pretty scene.Arcade - Snow Day SnugglesAs the holidays approach and time to do things seems to run out more quickly than we would like sometimes, I hope that all of you get to keep and share your traditions too. 🙂
