Christmas special end?

Prev1
It was supposed to be jan 3rd (tomorrow), but they said they will extend it to give everyone chance to buy everything. My guess is an extra 1 or 2 weeks

    Some people couldn't access their Springfield's for days even weeks. I've seen posts here from people that say they still need Santa's Little helper. Not everyone is done.

    I just got the message that the special would be extended and I was scrolling through my Christmas "to buy" list and was clicking on the "i" to see what the Funzo would do, and it clicked purchase! No "Are you sure?" or X back out option - just click and 1000 of my coins were gone! WANNNH!! Now I have a week to get them back to get Santos L Halpern (LOL)- I MUST HAVE THE DOG!

    I am new to the boards but play constantly. Even in class - AND I'M THE TEACHER!!!

    I already put a friend request in - how many friends can I have? Is there a limit?

    100 is the limit. Keep an eye on them, I had to delete a few friends because I would crash when I visited them. I noticed yesterday that I was missing 1 friend, so I had to add one more.

    Once they started giving out donuts for every 50 coins i decided santas little helper wasn't worth it.

    I'd rather have buildings and people earning money than a dog that does nothing.

    Is the donut for coins thing a guarantee? Couldn't I end up with a reindeer that also does nothing?

    I think i ended up with more reindeer than doughnuts but santa coins from friends it all balances out. We need bartman.

    Yes, you either get a reindeer or 1, 2 or 3 donuts.

    I got a lot more donuts than I did reindeers

    I got some donuts, a reindeer - which I sold for 500 - and more coins (???).

    Can't wait for the Xmas era to be over, it's been nice but I'm kinda ready to move on now.

    I don't understand selling reindeer for $500 when it gives you a .5% bonus. Once you collect $100,000 then you just made $500.

    So far I got about 90-100 donuts and 15-20 reindeer. I had a * of coins after I got all the seasonal stuff. You never know what I will get but it's better then having them all go to waste. Reindeer give u a bonus so even if you get them they are still good to have. I hide mine in woods

    Maybe it will end when one of us has 1 donut away from getting something good at the same time of having 49 Santa coins. Haha! I have hopes that they will increase friends to 120+ and/or levels to 50. Lets also see the Burns mansion with Waylon Smithers with 45s, 60m, 2h, 6h, 12h, 24h quests. Add the hounds too...price of mansion and smithers could be 300k Or whichever... And hounds could be 30 donuts for 3 of them. I'm happy with the Christmas ending today but I'm hoping everyone has their Doggy...even if it doesn't have quests... Haha. Kinda wish I'd not bought it even though I love the character... 1500 coins could have been a lot more donuts.

    Personally working on getting bonus Quest Characters, plan on spending 25 dollars...that's 390 donuts I think...which gets me all the ones I want. Christmas has gone on for more than a month...which is shorter than America actually spends celebrating it but anyways, if they are going to extend it, maybe we can see x2 coins for a week...and maybe when it is all said and done, they will change the reindeer's design to make it something that isn't seasonal and we can have it fit with the rest of our normal green landscape. Ya we could hide them but could be an opportunity for a new thing.

    Anyways I'm done talking, finally. Don't add me, I'm at my max with tons of requests backed up. Happy collecting and hope everyone is excited for the new stuff coming our way even though we don't know what it will be.
