Celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year in Second Life

Wish you luck in the Year of the Sheep!

Traditional Chinese New Year Greeting


          Here we are, ready for another festival in Second Life (SL)!  (Not to mention Real Life (RL) too!)

          The Chinese Lunar New Year is upon us once again! 

          And for the sixth year in a row, Perryn Peterson, Mayor of Mieville and impresario extraordinaire, is celebrating the event in style.  (Truthfully, I think this is the only way Perryn knows how to do anything!) 

          This year is the Year of the Sheep in the Chinese Zodiac and in keeping with this,
Perryn has planned the festivities in a pasture with lots of sheep about!

          The festivities will be centered around the weekly Mieville theme dance and will be held here. 

          The Lunar New Year celebration will take place on Saturday, February 21st from 6:00 to 8:00PM SLT.

          Perryn is beside himself this year as so many holidays are “squooshed” as he puts it into a narrower time frame.  But, he has never met a holiday he couldn’t or wouldn’t celebrate.

          There will be more to come!

          Come and celebrate the New Year with Perryn and the Mieville gang, I guarantee that you’ll have a great time!

          You may even run into me!         

I’d like to thank Perryn for his enthusiastic help in assisting me with this story.             

As always, I’m grateful to all inworld for their kindness and time in stopping to talk with a stranger who was passing through their lives.
