Holiday Wishes

We’re in the holiday season of giving.
I listen to the radio and they have a segment called Christmas Wishes.
Someone writes a letter of someone in need of help. It’s so wonderful to see people acknowledging others needs.

I want you to look at the community here and tell me about who you think deserves a SS package. I need your name and theirs. An explanation of why you think they deserve this.

Example: I think Siri deserves this opportunity. She is someone I can always count on and is there to give me guidance. Despite her not understanding me sometimes I couldn’t ask for a better friend.

The best nomination wins a month of SS.

Also I included a third question and that’s where you put in your Christmas wishlist. Maximum of 5 items please on the list. Your must haves wether they are in plaza or bazaar. I’ll see how many Wishes can be granted within reason. Don’t ask for DKNY scuba, first season LE, etc. Ask for items that are reasonable to find without paying and arm and a leg.

Link to the survey below.

Happy Holidays Dolls! looking forward to your nominations and making someone’s Christmas a little brighter.

13th Calendar item

Hi everyone!

It's time for the 13th Calendar item, and I think it's so special, that I must dedicate a separate post for it. After yesterday's nordic themed Tis the Season release, we are getting another uniquely Nordic phenomenon, an Aurora 4 piece set. It costs 16 stardollars, which I guess worth it.


My big dream is to see the Northern Lights one day and try out the reindeer sleigh ride. 




Do you like this Calendar item? Are you going to buy it?

Weekend OOTD - Stripped with B&W Results


Hey dolls, I know this is super late, and yet again I am doing the results without a poll but I got insanely busy with college life. For those of you who have me on Snapchat or Instagram, you'll know that not only have I had a lot going on with school but my social life has been crazy and I'm very involved with a student organization, obviously it has to do with sports, and this has allowed me to meet several people in the industry including executives and professional athletes. 

Before I announce the winners, I'd like your opinion. I will have a lot of free time over break so I'll be able to prepare several Weekend OOTD's in advance as well as result posts. Would you guys like to continue with Weekend OOTD starting after the New Year's or not. Or is there another type of contest you'd like me to prep for? 

Congrats to safakyildizi for winning 50 SD! Winner of the 20 SD raffle for those who entered both days is Exabella

Please claim prizes in the comments. Currently I'm not an SS, so keep this in mind when claiming prizes.

LIMITED EDITION RELEASE


How did everyone like the new LE collection? For some reason I always buy way too much if I'm online and then have buyers remorse. I get things that I'm not even sure if I like because I think I'll regret not getting them later. Whereas if I am not online it doesn't even bother me. I don't know why!

Prices range from 51sd to 158sd so quite expensive as usual, but you do get the 

Fendi headband for free!

Here is Lolitka1444 wearing it!

Anyway, what did you buy? What was your favorite or least favorite item?

Holiday Facts no.1: Santa Claus


I asked you like a week ago if you would like to have some 'cultural' posts that are not really related to Stardoll. Many of you gave me positive feedback, so here comes the first one.

Today I'm going to write about Santa Claus / Father Christmas / St. Nicholas. 

So who was the man behind this name? 
St. Nicholas was a bishop, who lived in Myra (today's Turkey) around the 4th century. He was a very rich man, but helpful as well.
He secretly gave gifts to the poor. The most famous story about St. Nicholas tells how the custom of hanging up stockings to put presents in first started!

There was a poor man who had three daughters. The man was so poor that he did not have enough money for a dowry so his daughters couldn't get married. One night, Nicholas secretly dropped a bag of gold down the chimney and into the house. This meant that the oldest daughter was then able to be married. The bag fell into a stocking that had been hung by the fire to dry! This was repeated later with the second daughter. Finally, determined to discover the person who had given him the money, the father secretly hid by the fire every evening until he caught Nicholas dropping in a bag of gold. Nicholas begged the man to not tell anyone what he had done because he did not want to bring attention to himself. But soon the news got out and when anyone received a secret gift, it was thought that maybe it was from Nicholas.
Even though he was so kind, and made a Saint, he got exiled during the reign of Diocletian. He died on the 6th of December.

How Saint Nicholas became Santa Claus and Father Christmas? 

His story and tradition became unpopular later, in the 16th century, but someone had to bring presents to children, so he became 'Father Christmas' or 'Old Man Christmas', an old character from stories plays during the middle ages in the UK and parts of northern Europe. 


In some countries including parts of Austria and Germany, present giver became the 'Christkind' a golden-haired baby, with wings, who symbolizes the newborn baby Jesus.

In the early USA, his name was 'Kris Kringle' (from the Christkind). Later, Dutch settlers in the USA took the old stories of St. Nicholas with them and Kris Kringle and St Nicholas became 'Sinterklaas' or as we now say 'Santa Claus'!

Many countries, especially ones in Europe, celebrate St. Nicholas' Day on 6th December. Children leave clogs or shoes out on the 5th December (St. Nicholas Eve) to be filled with presents.
St. Nicholas became popular again in the Victorian era when writers, poets, and artists rediscovered the old stories.



In 1823 the famous poem 'A Visit from St. Nicholas' or 'T'was the Night before Christmas', was published. The poem describes St. Nicholas with eight reindeer and gives them their names. They became really well known in the song 'Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer'.


The UK Father Christmas and the American Santa Claus became more and more alike over the years and are now one and the same.

Some people say that Santa lives at the North Pole. In Finland, they say that he lives in the north part of their country called Lapland.

But everyone agrees that he travels through the sky on a sledge that is pulled by reindeer, that he comes into houses down the chimney at night and places present for the children in socks or bags by their beds, in front of the family Christmas tree, or by the fireplace.


I got some sweets today from my roommate, and I guess at home my family is going to give me some more. It doesn't matter how old you are, I think, a little kindness makes you feel better.

I hope you enjoyed this little summary and will read the upcoming ones.

At what time do you usually celebrate Father Christmas / Santa Claus / Saint Nicholas day? What kind of presents do you get?
