An Early Christmas Present

Auto starts

Marge: We got a special early Christmas surprise for you, Maggie!
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Homer: It's the best kind of present! One that will monitor your behavior and report back to Santa.
Homer: You get to live in your own adorable little surveillance state with... the Gnome in Your Home!
Maggie: *suck* *suck*

Task: Place the Gnome in Your Home Box

Homer: We'll leave the Gnome in Your Home right next to your crib, so he can spy on every widdle thing you does!
Marge: And don't worry, he never goes to sleep! All he ever does is watch.
Homer: Watch, and judge. Don't forget the judging.
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Gnome: ...

Yule Love It! Pt. 1

Auto starts

Bart: Bad news, Lis. I just checked the Bible, and apparently Buddhists like you don't get Christmas presents.
Bart: Technically, I'm supposed to stone you to death. But since you're my sister, I'm gonna let that slide.
Lisa: It doesn't say that in the Bible!
Lisa: Well, I'm PRETTY sure it doesn't say that. Only nutjobs actually read the thing.
Lisa: But regardless, most Christmas traditions have Pagan origins.
Ned: Did you say P-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p...
Lisa: Why is it so easy to make Mr. Flanders hyperventilate?

Task: Make Lisa Explain the Origins of Christmas
Time: 6s
Location: Springfield Library or Brown House
Task: Make Springfielders Learn About Christmas[x5]
Time: 6s
Location: Springfield Library or Brown House

Lisa: We actually have no idea what day Jesus was born on. Early Christians just co-opted traditional celebrations of the Winter Solstice.
Lisa: But every kid, Jesus included, deserves a birthday party, so what's the harm?
Ned: But Pagans worship goats and demons and horrible monsters like Mother Earth!
Lisa: “Pagan” just means you don't follow one of the world's main religions. They're not scary!
Lisa: In fact, maybe we should hold a traditional Pagan Winter Carnival right here in Springfield. It'll be fun!
System Message: Will the Pagan Winter Carnival spell trouble for Ned and Lovejoy? Find out this Sunday at 8/7C on FOX!

Yule Love It! Pt. 2

Auto starts

Homer: Is it true, sweetie? Are we having a Bacon Winter Carnival?
Lisa: “Pagan.” Why would anyone have a Bacon Festival? Stupid.
Homer: Don't mock my religious beliefs!
Homer: You don't see me forcing my Baconist teachings on Pagans, do you?
Lisa: No. You've been very open-minded about that. Great job.

Task: Place the Pagan Winter Carnival Sign
Task: Make Homer Get Ready for Bacon
Time: 6s
Location: Simpson House

Homer: Nice sign, sweetie!
Lisa: Thanks. You going to put one up for your Bacon Festival?
Homer: You don't advertise a Bacon Party. Then you'd have to share your bacon, silly!
Homer: Which goes against EVERYTHING I believe in.

Yule Love It! Pt. 3

Auto starts

Lisa: Here's a twist on Christmas: instead of exchanging presents, we'll offer Pagan-style gifts to the gods!
Ned: It's GOD, not GODS! One! And he's not exactly keen on sharing the stage.
Ned: Seriously, “no other gods but me” is, like, in his top ten turn-offs.
Lisa: Now then, typical Pagan gifts to the gods were wine, or herbs--
Cletus: Catnip's a herb! And it grows at ma farm. I have some right here. I'll just hold up a large quantity in ma unprotected hands, and--

Task: Reach Level 6 and Build Cletus's Farm
Task: Make Cletus Struggle in a Cat Fight
Time: 6s
Location: Cletus's Farm

Cletus: Dangit! These cats are after my catnip like it was catnip!
Cletus: I guess there is a certain logic there.
Lisa: Catnip works as well as any other offering to the gods. But we'll need lots more!

Yule Love It! Pt. 4

Auto starts

Homer: I think the gods are bored with our offerings. I prayed about my enemies, and not a single one has been struck dead!
Willie: Willie's got an offering any god with half a brain would love -- a wee statue of Willie. Carved it myself.
Lisa: It's... disturbing.
Willie: Yeah, well maybe that's what the artist was GOING for.

Task: Make Willie Carve More Selfies
Time: 6s
Location: Willie's Shack

Lisa: Willie, what do you carve these out of?
Willie: Clay art projects I swipe from the school kiln. Saves yer parents the trouble of tossing them later.
Lisa: That's stealing! And F.Y.I., our parents LOVE when we bring home art!
Willie: Step one: pretend you love the art. Step two: wait until child forgets about the art, and toss. Repeat until college.

Springfield Henge Pt. 1

Auto starts

Lisa: Now we need a suitable place where we can make our offerings.
Willie: How about two rings of massive standing stones -- a henge, if you will -- supporting lintels.
Willie: We'll call these formations “trilithons.”
Lisa: You're describing Stonehenge.
Willie: Am not! Anyway, I had the idea first!
Lisa: Stonehenge is five thousand years old.
Willie: And Willie thought of it five thousand-and-one years ago! Ask anyone!

Task: Build Springfield Henge
Task: Hand in an Offering
Lisa: Springfield Henge is complete! And no one was crushed to death building it.
Homer: Except Moleman, but, you know, par for the course.
Lisa: Let's keep collecting more and making offerings!
System Message: You can now send more Pagans to collect Catnip and Carved Figurines!
Reward: 10 XP 25 Event Currency

Springfield Henge Pt. 2

Auto starts

Task: Make Pagans Collect Catnip [x4]
Task: Make Pagans Collect Carved Figurines [x4]

Reward: 10 XP 25 Event Currency

Springfield Henge Pt. 3

Auto starts

Task: Unlock a Daily Gift
System Message: Well done! Now keep collecting resources and exchanging them at Springfield Henge. There's one godly gift per day to unlock!
Reward: 10 XP 25 Event Currency

Gnome Alone Pt. 1

Auto starts

Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
System Message: Thanks for the explanation, Maggie! Use the Gnome Radar to find the Gnome in Springfield. When you tap him he'll run away.
System Message: Repeatedly tap the Gnome to make him drop lots of loot. Guilt Dust allows you to upgrade the Gnome Box and increase the loot you get from the Gnome!

Task: Put the Gnome Back In His Box
Task: Upgrade the Gnome Box

Maggie: *suck* *suck*
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
System Message: That's right, Maggie! The Gnome will be trapped in his box for the next 4 hours. Catch him again later to get some more loot!

Gnome Alone Pt. 2

Auto starts

Professor Frink: Good glayvin! I've made a shocking discovery!
Professor Frink: It's a previously-unknown method by which we can force you to visit alternate Springfields!
Professor Frink: Your friends' towns are being overrun by Gnomes in Your Home! And only you can stop them, Skyfinger!
Maggie: *suck* *suck*
System Message: Find the Gnome in your friends' town and put him back into his box. You can help one friend a day!

Task: Catch the Gnome in a Friend's Town

Professor Frink: By Hoyven, you did it!
Professor Frink: Keep Sky-Fingering until they're all gone!

A Pagan Paradise Pt. 1

Auto starts

Lisa: Okay, we've built Springfield Henge but will it be enough to bring the Pagans?
Lisa: I see the answer is “yes.”
Lisa: We probably could have drawn that suspense out a little, but... yippee, I guess!
System Message: Tap Pagans in your town to collect their tributes!

Task: Tap Pagans [x5]

Lisa: The Carnival is proving to be a success, and any other town would leave well enough alone. But this is Springfield. Keep building!
Reward: 10 XP 25 Event Currency

A Pagan Paradise Pt. 2

Auto starts

System Message: You can now tap Pagans in other Springfields!

Task: Tap Pagans in a Friend's Town [x3]
Reward: 10 XP 25 Event Currency

Logging In

Auto starts

Lisa: The Carnival is going so well, but we need more Pagan-themed attractions.
Lisa: I'm talking a Guess-Your-Deity Booth, Tilt-a-Wodin, Heathen Hayride, Goddess Kissing Booth, you name it.
Lisa: And, of course, Skee Ball. Because EVERYBODY likes Skee Ball.
Willie: If we're gonna build all that, we need a Lumber Mill!

Task: Build the Lumber Mill
Task: Craft a Carnival Banner

Willie: Now let's turn an entire forest into lumber, so we can properly celebrate Mother Nature!
Reward: 10 XP 25 Event Currency

Yule Love It! Pt. 5

Auto starts on December 9th

Ned: Pagans! Pagans Everywhere! Worshipping rocks! Wearing horns! Holding female gods in equal reverence to male!
Rev. Lovejoy: Easy, Ned. No one said religious freedom was a good idea, but it's the law of the land.
Ned: Sing with me, Reverend, won't you? A couple carols to remind them of the glory of Christmas?
Rev. Lovejoy: We'll sing the one about the guy banging a drum next to a sleeping newborn. That always gets ‘em!

Location: First Church of Springfield
Task: Make Lovejoy Sing Carols
Time: 4h

Task: Make Springfielders Attend the Pagan Carnival [x6]

  • Thanks LPN :)
    @nissa762 That is one of my favorites. I love John Williams :D reminds me of the 'Home Alone' movies :) ..although the medication music from 'One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest' might be more fitting on here today. :D

    Lovely. Thanks for posting.
  • Yule Love It! Pt. 5 has not dropped on my Springfield yet, anyone experience the same?

    it drops at 8pm gmt ;)

    Thanks was wondering the same thing.
  • I don't know if this is the thread to ask for, and sorry if not.
    I've been reading several threads and walkthroughs forward and backward.
    But I've never got the pagan winter banner!
    Although I got the quest today with Ned and Lovejoy singing, so I think I don't I missed anything,..... or did I?
    Any ideas/help would be appreciated
  • then what did you do in the part that asked for it?
  • Good question, I usually place everything right away, and everything in the same area.
    To work with it after the event. To answer your question, I don't remember.

    Soooo, in theory, I maybe placed it somewhere else and my inventory doesn't contain it.
    So, if I'm the only one with that issue, then it is my problem.
    Does anyone know what would have happened if I would have "declined" it, if that's possible at all?

    OK, so I turned off all the buildings and the monorail and scrolled through my whole town.
    I found it, turned out I placed it half behind a building far away from my actual event area, dummy me
    Sorry for some smoke about nothing.
    I was just so very sure I placed it where I usually place my event stuff first.
    Sorry again
  • No need to say sorry the town are so cluttered it's normal
  • Thank you. :)
  • it drops at 8pm gmt ;)

    Thanks LPN ;)

    @JessicaSayce don't feel bad, lol I lost the snowball ice sculpture in my inventory for about a month before I could find him again. I wasn't even in my town lol
    @hungzoobk93 maybe scroll through @LPNintendoITA walk through (one of the locked threads) read the act 1walkthrough and see if there is anything you missed that might have triggered it. What level is your SF? Sometimes a character hasn't been unlocked that is required to trigger the event segments. Had a few like that over the Halloween event.
    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.
  • I have played since 19th and don't have Springfield henge :( what should i do?
    Huh? You saying you are starting today? Have you downloaded the update from the Play or App Store?

    And what is event currency? Since I unlocked gnome and panga quest, I upgraded the mill and gnome box, but I don't know what the prizes is for.
    And sorry for my bad English
