The Greatest Christmas Gift of All…

golf-mainThis being my 5th Winter/Christmas/Holiday TSTO event, I really go into these things with a heavy dose of pragmatism, which starts with the question, “How many Christmas things can you actually use every year?”  And then I look at the hilariously gigantic, incongruous Christmas display at my neighbor’s house, and realize, “more than you can imagine” being the proper answer.

When I use the word “incongruous Christmas display,” in the previous description of my neighbor’s annual display (which takes the better part of two solid weeks to put up), I mean the kind of display that has Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus right next to Santa and a mechanized Mickey Mouse in an airplane.  Ralph is an “equal opportunity celebrationist.”  And that’s just one of the things that I like about his inclusive view of the holidays.

But, it also explains why I think that the “Greatest Gift of All” in this decidedly broad definition of a “holiday celebration” of an event, is hilariously divisive while being inclusive and inspirational.

I am of course (both declarative  and recreational)  talking about The Parson.

Good, old, what’s his name…The Parson.

Winter Xmas 2016 Calendar: Act Two

It’s beginning to look a lot like Festivus… for the Rest of Us!!

Turbo Tappin’ Winter 2016: Act 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s snowing in Springfield and that can only mean one thing…Winter has arrived!

Act 2 of the  2016 Winter Event hit our devices yesterday and with it arrived, not only new pagans invading our pocket-sized Springfields, but a whole new questline to work our way through!

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 2 runs until December 30th, and you’ll need Homer and Lisa and a variety of others free for a a bunch of 6s tasks to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the second Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what happens when Springfield goes Pagan…
