Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been caught in a major snowstorm you know that Christmas has arrived in Springfield! A light snow is falling & Santa has arrived in town! By now we’re all busy sending those elves and residents to the workshop to make presents!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the first phase, which lasts until Christmas Eve (12/24), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Presents. The eight and final prize is awarded at 14,000 Presents and it’s the Nativity.
Let’s take a closer look at this living Nativity, and just what happens when you add it to your Springfield..
Note: I know many of you are not here yet. And don’t worry you’re not behind. If you’re following Bunny’s calendar you have until the 23rd to reach 14,000 presents. I just know from the comments that many of you will be reaching this at some point over the weekend, so I wanted to make sure all of the details were out there prior to the weekend. So don’t panic if you haven’t gotten the Nativity yet. You’ve still got plenty of time.
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 14,000 Presents the Nativity will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 14,000 Presents mark this message will still popup and this Nativity will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Nativity Scene will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Before this is placed in your Springfield some short dialogue between Homer and Lisa will popup & some tasks will be required for Homer, Lisa, Marge & Bart. Here’s the full rundown:
Our Home and Nativity Land
Homer: Okay, if we do this right, we can finally beat flanders for “Best Nativity Scene” in the Evergreen Terrace Holiday competition.
Lisa: As an occasionally practicing Buddhist, I’m not sure I want to be part of this.
Homer: Dose Buddhism have angels?
Lisa: Well, there are avatars of those who have passed beyond the circles of time and then returned to help others achieve Nirvana.
Homer: Fine. You’re an angel.
Place the Nativity Scene
Make Homer Be Joseph- 16hrs, Earns $500, 125xp
Make Marge Be Mary- 16hrs, Earns $500, 125xp

Make Bart be Baby Jesus (Jebus)- 16hrs, Earns $500, 125xp

This, in my opinion, is by far the best prize of this event. Something characters actually use and it looks AWESOME! A great prize for the final Present Prize!
So here’s the deal with this living Nativity:
-Decoration for your Springfield
-Tasks for Homer, Marge, Lisa & Bart there
-Improves Righteousness (+10). So for those worried about vandalism, this will help.
-Only animated when in use
So that about covers all the details on the final present prize, the Nativity!
