Well, it’s the end of the year; a time when the majority of people across the planet celebrate the winter holiday seasons: Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas, Eid-al-Adha, Diwali, Winter Solstice, Yule and more. It is a season to take extra time to gather with family and friends — and express gratitude for life’s abundance. It’s a season of giving thanks and gifts.
XRadio is thankful to the nearly half million listeners that we have had in the past year. We are giving away free gifts at XRadio HQ in Second Life as a token of our appreciation.

FREE XMAS GIFTS!
My nine-year old child will tell you that this time of the year is all getting free gifts. This year, XRadio is opening up Santa’s bag and handing out free gifts for the month. These include holiday decorations by Alicia Stella Designs as well as holiday wearables and other fun gifts in the Advent calendar as well as other gifts near the tree. You can get collectable XMas-themed toys like toy soldiers, seasonal flags, candy canes and even a XMas tree. Simply click on the advent board or one of the presents waiting on the floor.
NOTE: You must be a member of the XRadio group in order to get the free Advent gifts. It is free to join.
SUPPORT XRADIO’s TOYS FOR TOTS DRIVE!
As stated recently, XRadio is once again participating with businesses around the virtual world of Second Life for a Toys for Tots charity drive. Simply visit XRadio HQ in Second Life and toss a donation into the donation station. Toys for Tots is an amazing program that helps put a smile on less fortunate children. For more info, click here.
You can also donate to Toys for Tots via the website. Point your web-enabled browser to Marine Toys for Tots to support or to get more info on this great cause.
DO SOME HOLIDAY SHOPPING!
That’s right, you can even get some holiday shopping done at XRadio HQ this holiday season. This year we are featuring one of our favorite designers, Daffy Pronto from Daffy’s Gadgetmania. You can buy trees, ornaments, and even a complete holiday dinner table. There’s something for everyone on your virtual shopping list!
Yes, as alternative as XRadio is, we DO still play holiday songs during this time of the year. Enjoy great classics from Mariah Carey, Eartha Kitt, Burl Ives, Judy Garland and more; as well as unconventional holiday music from such artists as Ray Stevens, Jon Lajoie and “Weird Al” Yankovic. We even have a dubstep version of a popular holiday song in rotation!
Speaking of Judy Garland, keep an ear out for the annual Judy Garland Christmas Special, as well. More info to come on that in the near future. Subscribe to XRadio News to stay informed of that and all happenings at XRadio: the Metaverse Superstation.
