Winterfest 2013 has hit the Raglan Shire in a ball of snow, fun, & holiday what-nots. The first thing that came to mind this year when Mount Waffle was erected in the middle of the Shire was that I needed to grab my snow shovel & make all pathways clear for Second Life residents.
After a few hours of toiling over the never-ending prim snow I realized that Winterfest wasn’t about making the paths clear for others to travel. (Although I still say “Safety First!!”.) Winterfest is all about Wootmas.
What’s Wootmas? Is it like Christmas?
Well…yeah…but instead of just having snow & jingle bells “Wootmas” brings Wootmas Caroling, Sekret Santa, holiday togetherness & lots of parties. You can’t have the holidays unless you put a little “Woot” into it.
It’s about rolling down Mount Waffle in a giant ice ball. Riding the ski lift up to the top just to decide if you want to play it safe or take the “Jackrabbits Peril” trail (Which is clearly marked “steep & scary snow path”.) Playing a game of “frootcake” after you just ice skated around the hockey rink. Gifts under the tree from residents & shop owners alike. Warming yourself by the fire after a hard days shoveling.
If you still don’t know what I’m talking about then you just need to go to, enjoy Winterfest, & only then will you know exactly what “Wootmas” really is.
Every year Winterfest in the Raglan Shire brings together a community that works really hard to just have a bit of fun. How can you not want to visit & see it for yourself?
