Winter is a bleak and barren season of short days and trees stripped of their color. At the end of the month of December, many festivals are celebrated at the time of the turning of the seasons around the winter solstice. Thoughts turn to light and hope and belief when things are at their darkest.
Even though or maybe because I live in the South, there is something about a stark winter landscape that I find indescribably beautiful. I love that the sim I spend most of my time on has been decked out in snow and ice and twinkling lights.

This gazebo above from ~*Souzou Eien*~ is available at Gothmas by Gaslight, and adds the perfect touch to a winter landscape. It also comes in a more gothic solid black and a rich wood varnish.
I added these pretty glowing Fae Orbs from ~*Souzou Eien*~ to mine. This version floats up and down in midair, and if you don’t feel like a holiday red the lights change to many other colors with just a touch.
The little bauble I’m holding is from the ~*Souzou Eien*~ Gatcha at Gothmas by Gaslight. Here is a closeup so you can see the detail on both of these
I had some fun playing in the snow with them
~*Souzou Eien*~ is also offering this elegant Victorian street lamp to light up those long winter evenings or a bunny holiday celebration.
My wish for everyone this season, especially those who have struggled through rough times of one kind or another, is to find some light and hope in the dead of winter and to have better days in the coming year.
