Ideas for Christmas event

Prev1
TSTO was not available on android last year. I would certainly like to see the house skins with Christmas decorations return.
I also see Santa flying in a few neighbors towns, I know I cant shoot gremlins with my ray gun as they are too fast but a slow moving sleigh might be ideal.

    My only wish is that I hope it doesn't crash and freeze. Last year was horrendous

    I liked the Santa coins and would like to see them return, along with snow, just not as long. I also missed a few xmas light skins because I had just started playing. I also want more xmas trees. At first I was mad because I didn't get Santa's village, but flying homer seems as annoying as all the other flying stuff Arnie Pyle is the worst. OK I still want the village back, but I'm not flying Homer. Flying witch marge is OK because she stays low to the ground and out of the way. As far as new stuff IDK. My guess would be we will exchange gifts rather than have coins this year.

    Would love to get XMs skins for some of my houses as I didn't get them all last year (joined in January and lost quite a coins when the update ended) & the reindeer. The snow was good too.
    Coins from the houses would be better than a frantic race to get all the new things like in Whacking day & Halloween - mind you Halloween has been much, much better.

    Looking forward to any surprise EA gives us.

    A 20% + donut sale would help a lot for the shoping.

    I HATE CRAFTING. CRAFTING? Bah! Humbug!

    Xmas trees?
    Xmas lights on houses?
    Reindeer?

    I for one am hoping they Keep Santas Village out of this years content. I am ok with xmas lights but not liking the idea of re-releasing content. I want new content and quest lines.

    And I am wearing my flame suit so whatever lame flames you spew it doesnt matter

    The Springfield Mall. Bring in Mr. Costington, The Yes Guy, & Gil Gunderson. Include The Leftorium for Flanders, & The Happy Sumo with Akira. Actually there's a lot you could do with the Mall. It could be its own event outside of Springfield like Krustyland.

    Don Brodka for the Try-N-Save. Send the toughies there to shoplift.

    Mr. Burns skin as Scrooge.

    Grandpa skin as WWII pilot

    A burning Christmas tree

    An Astrolabe for Homer to buy

    I'm also looking forward to getting the Christmas decorations (facades) for the houses, but my great fear is that the ones from last year will cost donuts, much like the Heck House facade for the church this Halloween.

    We already had Santa coins for our event currency last year it would be nice if they had a different currency this year. I hope they make last year's Christmas items available again because the game was not available for android last year. I really hope they bring back Santa's Village and the Mr.Plow skin for Homer. I would want them to add the Jazz Hotel that comes with Bleeding Gum's Murphy, and also Hal Roach Apartments with Jacqueline Bouvier as well. For Kl Christmas additions they can add Scratchy's Cat-anooga Spew Spew ride!

    I honestly think they should make the Christmas event less excruciating than the Halloween event. There was so much going on during this Halloween event (haunting buildings, the night effect, gremlins running around) that the game constantly crashed. I missed last years Christmas event, but I have a few ways to make this year's event less of a headache.


    -Keep the snow intact until after the event AND NO MORE NIGHT
    -Use a special currency similar to the Santa Coins (maybe Candy Canes)
    -Maybe add a seasonal ride for Krustyland or a special building for the Squidport
    -Bring back several of last year's items at lower prices (such as Santa's Village) for newer players
    -Have minimal tasks that tie around the entire month and end with decent prizes.

    Really good ideas everyone. :) I also think that they should bring back last years content as the game wasn't available on android last year.

    I think EA will have to be creative because they've given us almost every Christmas symbol there is already!

    Santas village was donuts but can't remember how many.
    Xmas lights for houses were 50 coins each (event currency)
    I think the tree was a gift but can't remember, it was first task.
    The reindeer cost donuts as well but after the main tasks were done you could buy Santa stockings with your extra coins and would usually get reindeer or donuts.


    As far as this years Xmas I'd love to see the new houses get decorations. (Wiggum, skinner, burns, wolf castle) As well as some of the other buildings in town. Candy cane decorations would be nice too. I could really use a couple new things for squidport building or decoration. Preferably both. I'm keeping my fingers crossed mr plow will be back, I've been kicking myself for not buying him last year. And lighted trees would be great!

    I'm picturing them as the dead trees with little white lights al over them. Or colored lights! Maybe there can both, so we can decorate our towns in the color scheme we prefer. But white lights would probably would blend in too much with the snow.

    Would also like the Mapple Store to be re-released for those who didn't get it and some stores (maybe the Yes Guy could come with one of them).
