Monday December 31 was New Year's Eve. The last day of the year, and time to say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019. There were celebrations all over Second Life, and yours truly was at a few of them.
Some places would have their New Year's Eve events a little early. Club Cutlass being open only on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays would have it's New Year's Eve event on Saturday December 29.
"Happy Nude Deer."
The usual 200 Linden prize on both of the contest boards was upped to 500 each that night.
On Sunday December 30, the crews of the White Vixen Enterprises clubs, the Happy Vixen and Club Zero Gravity, had a party with a few of their friends at Nydia Tungsten's manor.
DJ Snowbuns played the tunes for the event. Normally, the managers, DJs, and hostesses of the two clubs can't enter the contests of any WVE event. But this special staff party was for them, with 4000L up for prizes.
The prizes were won by Skylark Lefavre, LSraccoon Resident, and TechGamer93 Resident.
"Tonight's event was for ALL of you, to say THANK YOU for all you do for us, your work has NOT gone un noticed!"
On New Year's Eve, Monday December 31, some parties were held early in the day for areas with numbers of European residents, such as the Roma community and Safra Nitely's Devon Dream.
The H-Bomb Lounge in Olive, a few sims north of Lusk, also had a New Year's party. While the crowd was from Luskwood, the theme of the club was a big more PG-13. Haley Maruti/DJ Sqwrl, whom plays at anniversary events for the classic furry community played the music.
Earlier in the day, Club Zero Gravity had an event. The Sunweaver club that would have a New Year's Eve party in the evening was the Happy Vixen. 4000 Lindens were up for grabs for the best New Year's look. Sydney Fisher (Sydney Finchy) would win the prize. The party ended just as the clock hit Midnight on the US east coast.
Eternal Desires New Year's Eve party had the music played by DJ Snowbuns. The club's owner Blackened Merlin was there.
At the Goblin Cave in Caledon Downs, both the Sunweavers and Caledonians celebrated the arrival of 2019. This picture was taken after the party's peak when the sim was full.
Duchy Cynthia invites all to come and ring in the new year at the Goblin Cave. When? Well Monday New Years Eve silly. Starting at 9PM and lasting at least till 1AM. I, your host for the party shall also play the tunes to dance to. Party favors and games like Yatzee, Greedy, Unno, Billiards and Cards Against Humanity available.
Cynthia Farshore, the owner of the venue and sim, played the music on her "Fabulous Fidelity Factory" as the four time zones across the continental US rang in 2019.
It was quite a party that lasted well into the night, some of the people were only to stay up through enthusiasm, a little caffeine, or both.
Yours truly sent an alt over. With the lag, I wasn't able to get a clean picture of the crowd. Fortunately Marianne Mccann had one on her SL profile page.
Finally Midnight arrived, "Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one ..."
"HAPPY NEW YEAR!!"
Happy New Year, Second Life.
