Hey there holiday tappers! Howzit? So TSTO is officially in White Christmas mode and the snow is a’falling. I don’t know about you but I love my town covered in snow. As a Southern California resident, I like the snow I can oooh and aaah over without being cold or shoveling it. Of course with a brand new event comes brand new stuff to chat about. My favorite part is of course re-watching Simpsons episodes and then sharing with you just where THAT comes from. For this edition, let’s take a look at the Nativity.
Once you acquire 14,000 presents in the game (the eighth and final Part 1 prize), the Nativity is added to your town. This new item comes from“Simpsons Christmas Stories” (S17:E9). After a horrific model train crash at Reverend Lovejoy’s and an unfortunate feinting by Flanders after a papercut, Homer is left to give the sermon at the First Church of Springfield. Homer decides to tell the story of the first Christmas. Of course this is the story of the birth of Baby Jeebus so a nativity is a requirement. Definitely a cute story to watch and you get to see all your favorite characters as figures from the Bible story.
As a bonus, several characters get a 16 hr task with the Nativity. All of them are what they were in the episode.
Homer = Be Joseph – 16 hrs/$500 & 125 XP
Marge = Be Mary – 16 hrs/$500 & 125 XP
Bart = Be Baby Jesus – 16 hrs/$500 & 125 XP
Lisa = Be an Angel – 16 hrs/$500 & 125 XP Here’s a couple more images of the nativity from the episode. Anyone besides me wish more characters could have been involved?
Our new decoration kind of looks like a stage piece so my thoughts are you could put it with Krustylu Studios. Maybe this is yet another way EA has broke the 4th wall and now we actually have the set for the segment? Another placement could be near the church and I don’t know why, but I have plans for Flanders’ backyard.
And that’s really it for the Nativity. As a bonus, I figured I’d show ya the nativity from Krusty’s Kristmas on Ice (“Kill Gil Vol. 1 & 2, S18:E9). Gotta love animals in ice skates lol.
And that’s really it for this decoration. What do y’all think of it? Just another Christmasy item to stick in your town for the event or all year long. For the interim, I think their might be Nativity plays in Wookieetown for the foreseeable future. Happy Birthday Jeebus! Well my friends, have fun in your games and have a classy Christmas (or whatever you celebrate).
TTFN… Wookiee out!
