Setting Santa coin tasks tonight

I'm going to go ahead and do it to try and get the last few coins. Most of the updates seem to come in the early afternoon for me here in the midwestern US. I think the problem with the update from Halloween was that the servers got overwhelmed by all the users accessing at one time. One of the earlier posts mentioned that the event would end on 1/10, meaning the update might be on the 11th. However, I am believing that EA learned something from the last update and this one will be a bit smoother. Here's to hoping!

    Well I already set Marge on her 16 hour task right before posting this, so here's to risk taking I suppose :?

    Here's what the FB page says: It’s your LAST CHANCE to spend Santa Coins and get the limited time items before January 10! Check out the new Mystery Stocking!

    Looks like the event ends tonite --- let's all be risk takers! There's a risk every time we log in right???

    Good luck! I set all mine to end their Christmas tasks before midnight. I lost my town for two weeks after Halloween so I don't want to put myself in a possible similar situation.

    Thank my lucky stars I woke up in time to collect the very round of Xmas tasks. I was in a similar situation as you and no way in H E double LL am I going to be in the same situation again.
