Merry Christmas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Christmas!  It’s Christmas! Santa’s here!!! Woo-hoo!!!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Winter Update here), as the Addicts celebrate Christmas by tearing open packages, over indulging on Christmas cookies…oh and I guess spending time with our families too! 😉 (personally I was up until way to late last night assembling a play kitchen and car…so I’m hoping for a Christmas nap at some point!)

Short Story Long… We are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind, and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will likely sit in moderation for a bit. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!

No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return after the holiday with any changes and more info about the Winter Event.  So for today….ENJOY THE SILENCE!

Well that’s it from us.  But we want to take a moment to wish you and your families a VERY Merry Christmas!  Have a great day everyone and be safe!

Merry Christmas from the Addicts

Now feel free to share your own thoughts and memories in the comments below. You know we LOVE to hear from you and it will be something great to come back to after the Holiday. So feel free to comment away. 😉

P.S. If you want to see how Riley (aka the Tiny Addict) spent Christmas Eve and today..check out instagram. 🙂

P.P.S. I know it’s Sunday, so if you’re missing the open thread you can check out the Christmas Eve one here.

  1. I was disappointed that there was no acknowledgement of Christmas when I opened up my Spingfield this morning. I thought normally we Tappers received something from EA on Christmas Day. 🙁

  2. Hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent most of the day woodcarving, working on some incense burners. Kids were with their mother so kept my mind focused, my oldest daughter brought tears to my eyes because her gift to me was so thoughtful. So simple, it honestly was nothing big but the fact that she knows me so well. As much as I can be bothered by their sometimes laziness around the house I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Should we take this lackluster winter event and lack of so much as even a merry Christmas in the game yesterday as signs that the end is near for new content for this game?

    • Ah yes, where every day is Doomsday.

      • I don’t see the two events related…at all.

        As those of us who have completed the “Maggie Star” questline can attest, you get a free Christmas tree, and little Maggie as the star. What is more Christmassy than that?

        I don’t see the game ending anytime soon…as long as there is money to be made, and the Simpsons are still creating new shows for broadcast.

      Hopefully not, it is one of my few escapes😂

  4. Merry Christmas everyone, just sobered up, red wine gets me evertime, tapped a few times on Christmas day, no presents from ea, nearly finished this event, 1 upgrade to get for the elf and have all the prizes, need a few tickets to reach 2000 and hope to get the station for my monorail, 4 prizes available thought, fingers crossed

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      I wish I could give away the 4,000 I have. I have no use for them, EA decided they didn’t want the devotees to get anything else 😐

  5. Merry Christmas addicts ♡

  6. Merry Christmas or happy holiday (whatever you celebrate) to all! I had a wonderful Christmas! I was able to surprise my mom on Christmas Eve, she thought I had to work. Also a great time at the inlaws today! Grandpa has dementiia and decided he didn’t want presents, decided to throw them at everybody else. I’m glad we got him socks, the first gift he was handed, he threw it at my nephew, no one expected that!

  7. Now George Michael.

  8. I need some help from the addicts on this special day! I got 116 donuts burning a hole in my pocket and I don’t know how to spend them! Or should I save up?

    • Personally I’d save them til near the end of the event, if you don’t have enough tickets to open a box and there’s something you may want, could get it cheaper.

  9. Merry Christmas tappers. ^^

    And nothing in tapped out today, not even any dialogue. 🙁

  10. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!! ❄️🎄❄️😄😄😄

    Merry Christmas to all!

  12. Merry Christmas everyone!

    To anyone that has gotten the Dunking Device, I think it’s called, is it worth it? Does anyone have a visual task there or anything like that?

    • Homer has a very funny and good visual tasks there. He is shown in the chair shivering before he is lowered down and freezes blue 😂.

      Hope every tapper (admin, reader, rigellian Etc.) has a very merry Christmas! X 🎄🎅
      Don’t want this day to end – way too happy (is that a thing? NAH!)

  13. Merry Christmas Tappers! I appreciate all of you! The presents have been opened in a small fraction of the time it took to wrap them.

    No EA Tapped Out Gift? I guess it’s better than coal. Anyhoo, I got Star Maggie today, so here comes the bonuts! I decided to drop some donuts on the Egg Nog Bar and the Singing Stones. I was saving for a platinum mystery gift, I accidentally tapped on the silver and received Ebenezer Burns…..D’OH!

    • Did the exact same thing and got SequelStop which I had no desire to get. They conveniently left out a cancel button for the voucher gifts…

  14. Merry X-Mass 2 everyone, did anyone got something for tapping in X-Mass like previous years? ??

  15. Happy Festivus to all.

    Does EA really not release something on Christmas Day? It’s the first Christmas I’ve played this. I figured something free was a given.

    • X-Mass 2014: Duff beer Christmas tree
      X-Mass 2015: sort of a New York New years ball that crushes and burns
      2016: nothing

      • I got the Christmas tree that came with the star-suit Maggie questline today, but that timing was partially coincidental, I guess. As for last year’s New Year’s ball, there’s still time left to get a New Year’s present! 🙂

      • Josephine Kick@$$

        My thoughts exactly… super shocked when I logged in & there was no free item (a token item would have sufficed). What is going on with EA?

  16. Merry Christmas to you all.
    I always think that when I’m on holiday I will get more tapping done, but I always end up doing less. I guess it’s a combination of spending more time in bed and being with family all day. Probably a good thing.

  17. Merry Christmas ! And thank you to all of the moderators!

  18. Thanks Alyssa and a very Merry Christmas to all

  19. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Just did star Maggie’s 4 hour job and holy cow, or sheep, it was not what I was expecting. Funny but not what I expected.

  20. Merry Christmas & happy holidays to all!

  21. Merry Christmas to you, your family and everyone that puts time into making this such a wonderful site. We are all blessed to have ALL of the people in our lives.

  22. Merry Christmas Alissa and everyone! Thank you for everything you do for us 🙂

    Merry Christmas everyone! 🎄🎄🎄

    (Where’s our Christmas gift EA?😂)

    I’m going to be spending more time with family today💘 (Sneaking in a little tapping, what can I say, I’m an addict😍)

    Big hugs to everyone!!!! 💞💞💞

  24. Merry Christmas!

  25. I must have been a bad boy, no presents this year?! Happy holidays all!

    • Yeah I can’t seem to get into the spirit this year either….not to be a hum bugger, I just can’t.

      • Not sure how that message went to you, it was supposed to be a reply to Moloch lol He or She stated couldn’t wait til this day is over.

        • Yeah the day only seems to be going downhill. My computer crashed as I was backing up my library. I lost thousands and thousands of songs.

          • Had that happen a few times, R.I.P. Harddrive 🙁 ….and George Michael apparently, will 2016 just let up on the deaths already? 🙁

          • Oh Ryan, that’s heartbreaking! All the music. At least you’ll be able to get most, if not all, of it back. But the work…ugh. I hope you can find the time soon to sit down with some nice green medication and work on that.

            This is exactly why I’m old school and can’t get rid of my hundreds of CDs.

            • Thanks, yeah I keep them all around. When I lived in South Dakota my living room was bigger than my entire apartment is now. I had around 1500 then and they were displayed on shelves meticulously alphabetized. Now I’ve got over 3000 in boxes,in closets, piled in corners and no CD player.

            • ITA…I always buy CDs and then copy them onto my iPod or whatever, rather than just buy digital copies…there’s something wonderfully reassuring about having physical media. But I do like that Amazon often throws in the downloadable mp3s for free when you buy a music CD from them

  26. Merry Christmas to all…

  27. Jeebuz I can’t wait till this day is over.

    • Just enjoy it as a Sunday…go to the movies or something. Or, if you don’t want to go outside and “risk” seeing happy holiday goers, stay home and use the day to binge watch something on Netflix or Amazon or something (so you can avoid holiday stuff on regular tv). Hang in there…It’ll all be over pretty soon! 🙂

  28. Merry Christmas to all of you! Enjoy the day off and hope you make some wonderful family memories.

  29. Merry Cristmas to everyone! May the day bring many bonuts. 🎄🎄🍩🍩
