  • There was, but it ended in January. There might be one later this year, but.....

    And as other threads have shown, until LPNintendoITA says so it won't happen.

    Having said this, I leave the floor open for more unnecessary speculation.

    If you haven't read any other treads. Christmas is probably/maybe/hopefully arriving before the next weekend starts. :)

    Have you read any of the other threads about this topic?
  • Of course there is.
  • No Christmas for this sniper....my dog ate the tablet, my phone wanted to know what rain felt like--poor HTC, I bet it hurt....
    EA says; no TSTO on PC! not now, not tomorrow and not for Christmas...... :s
  • I remain skeptical.
  • Christmas officially started the moment the Thanksgiving forks were put down, and the mall doors opened at 6:00 this year. It has been 11 days of holiday happening, and there are only 20 days left to go before its end. That's right, if you're good at math, you've probably recognized already that a clear 1/3 of Christmas merriment and celebratory hoo-doodling is already over! The major networks have been running through their lineup of holiday specials. Indeed, while its not usual to report on such activity, you'll find if you look, that many of your favorite retailers have already started in the annual processing of gift returns. That's right ladies and gentleman, you can only read this one way, the season's end has already started. In almost a weeks time, the holiday will be half-over, and the post-zenith slide out of holiday excess will already be inexorably underway, and the titans of the work week will again own your sad soul until spring break.

    Where does that leave us? Myself, I hit the xmas light button a week ago. But without snow, most of my springfielders have been wandering about in temporal dissonance, still shuffling about under the influence of a zombie sandwich. Others, without visible tasks, have vanished completely.

    Clearly, in delaying the holiday, EA has sided with the starbucks red cups in the quest to ban a holiday whose roots go back 200 years before the common era. By continuing to withhold our season of gift-giving, merriment and mirth, EA has thumbed its nose at our sacred holiday traditions.



  • Christmas, in my house, does not start until the 1st Sunday of Advent (this year, November 27th) and ends on the 12th day of Christmas (6th of January). Even by my way of reckoning, EA is still late, and will probably go well past day 12...par for the course.

    events normally last 40 days, this is not late timing compared to previous events. a start this tuesday 12/6 would end 1/15

    last year started 12/8 and ended 1/19
  • EA dropped the little gnome box on us last week and the Winter 2016 stuff is available for sale in The Store. The Christmas update is coming. It will probably run a little late, but don't they always? The Treehouse of Horror update lasted for 2 weeks after Halloween. Honestly, for me the time away from constant tapping has been kinda nice. I've been able to get some stuff done in the real world.
