Cosingtons VS Santas Village

So I'm in a bit of a predicament. I think I have 137 donuts left and I was just about to get Santas Village when I saw Cosingtons pop up. i think Santas village is a steal at 80 donuts but I missed out on Cosingtons last year and I really do love that building. Any suggestions for what I should do? Thanks! :)

In the end the choice is yours.

Would you rather have the Santa village which really just sits there doing nothing.

Or

Would you rather have a huge building with a character you can use to earn you in game cash ?

    I think you forgot SV comes with a Santa skin for Homer...best visible tasks, get stuck in the chimney and fly the reindeer. Also my SV pays out. No additional character but still worth it IMO.

    Tough call,
    Although I adore Santas village and think it has the best visual tasks in the game. I would lean more towards Cossingtons as it works more all year round and to me is easier to fit into Springfield. If you had said that the start of the month I would had gone for Santas village though.

    Lol I think you all may have made my decision harder :) Santas village does have some great visual tasks and I love it when I see homer driving the sleigh in my neighbors towns. But I think Cosingtons has a great design and I think I could fit it well with my downtown area or next to my mall. Only have 3 days left to decide! I always make this so hard ;)

    Go for Costington's, since the building and character will look good year 'round. If you get Santa's village, it will only look good for about a month, the rest of the time it will just sit there. Same with Santa Homer. Will you really want to have him in his Santa skin in the middle of July?

    I don't remotely understand the hate for Costington's. Personally I very much enjoy characters/buildings who have featured often in the show.

    Agree, there are several reasons I would nab cosingtons over santas Villiage but all have already been said in this thread. I got him for free last event but for a past event item so long as you like it, it's worth it.

    I have both but one thing that hasn't been mentioned is that Costingtons gives +10 to Consumerism I had it free last year I can't honestly say whether it would be a must have for me if had to buy it

    Terrible advice, flying sleigh Santa Homer isn't a good justification for getting the village that will no doubt become available again next year. Get Costington's as it can be displayed all year round and looks great downtown.

    This- actually flying Santa in his sleigh gets Really old, REALLY fast..... And like it was mentioned will most likely be back next year, as it's been here every year so far..... Costingtons may just be gone
    PM me- I DO need Good Neighboreenos currently

    Of course, last year the village was 200 donuts. This year it's 80. Next year it could be back to 200, stay at 80, or drop to 40. Who knows?!

    Short answer: Get what you want.
