Sometimes people speak, but often the event takes place in comparative silence – a break from the busyness (and the business) of the Expo – a time to reflect, remember and mourn. Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.

Today’s important news is – the Decorating phase of the Home and Garden Expo contest has come to an end, and the voting will start later today!

The sixteen houses have now all been decorated and later today RFL kiosks will be placed outside each one. Every Linden you pay into the kiosks counts as a vote – you can vote as much and as often as you like, and you can vote for as many houses as you want!
