And heeeeeeere’s Santa! Well, not really but definitely a place for him to rest his caboose. Yes that’s right Tappers and Tappettes, we got our second Community Prize. Santa’s Workshop is ours! Does anyone else feel like the last 175 million counted down real slow?
Wait, I’m getting word from the control room that Kent has breaking news on this development… let’s go over to him and see what’s going on….
Just kidding folks! Santa’s not dead. I know for a fact that there are some of America’s finest in the US Air Force preparing to track him with their fancy satellites over at NORAD. Seriously, check out this site, it’s legit!
Our new prize comes from Season 1, Episode 1: Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire. Arguably, THE Christmas episode to compare all others to, it’s a classic I will just say you should go watch. In the episode, Homer gets a second job as a Santa to make money for the holidays.
Big blue chair… check. Giant over-sized Christmas tree… double check. Weird shed where he pulls Bart after being debearded… you really want me to say check again? Looks like the decoration sitting in my town. I’ve had a spot waiting for this since I made my Christmasland in Wookieetown.
The SC area in the top right has been waiting patiently (unlike me) so I’m super thrilled for this new prezzie from EA even if it is outdoors. Let’s face it though, so much goes on indoors in our towns we never get to see, right? I’m just thankful it’s not stuck inside Costingtons. Then Santa would be Gil and a lot more depressing than Homer J.
Notice that Homer has the blue chair. As for the name of the new decoration. I think it was stolen from the Santa area in the Try N Save from Marge Be Not Proud (S7:E11, a number I’m sure Apu dislikes). Right over their Santa can be seen a banner for “Santa’s Workshop”. I’m sure a lot of folks have seen areas similar to this in their local malls.
Santa’s Workshop has a 24 hour build time so we’ll see what other goodies it has in store for us. Well… not really much else to say. Another community prize checked off and only 175 million gift bags to go before we get the scrooge skin for Montgomery Burns. Here’s to hoping we hit 800 million quickly so we’re not all ignoring family while presents are passed out and they talk about Dr. Who.
TTFN… Wookie out!
