  1. I’m really looking forward to Christmas this year. I couldn’t play last year, glad I missed it by the sounds of it. I quite like the mystery boxes although I haven’t got the things I wanted yet but such is life. Hurry up and arrive Christmas!

  2. “I’m dreaming of a Rigellian Christmas!” 🤣
    (no questions, just bring it) 👾🎅

    I agree with you Alissa last years Christmas event removed all the family and happiness of being together. The event was terrible. I also agree with Patric bury the thought of the event, why cry about something that happened a year ago. After all the game is written to please ALL people without singling out anyone and their beliefs. Its in the past let it go, you cannot change the past, put it to rest. This years Christmas event looks promising so far, so just look forward to something special. Not everyone will like it and some will love it. Take it as it comes and try to make the best of it. I’m also Catholic and didn’t care for last years event but I never let it stop me from persevering through, hoping it would get better. Maybe this year will be the best event yet. Merry Christmas All and God bless.

  4. Just started watching a bit late. Welcome to CowTown COG!! I’ve been super busy with remodeling my house, had quite a flood a couple months back. Starting to have a bit of free time on my hands now so 2 questions for ya Pat. Did you bring your clubs with you and would you like to tee off with us tomorrow at 7:40??

    • Sorry… no clubs. We are here for my daughter and future don in law’s wedding shower. Currently at their cabin in Forest Hill.

      Back to Eugene tomorrow.

      We are down here fairly often… so maybe next time.

      • No worries. If you do get a chance next time, Auburn has some amazing courses. I visit Darkhorse, The Ridge, and Auburn Valley (where I was married) quite often. I’m actually in Lincoln so not too far from ya 😉

  5. I was hoping EA would give us a daily advent calendar. Never mind Disney Kingdoms have hive us one. It’s lovely. Something to look forward to everyday until the Winter event hits. Love my Kingdom..💜X

    Merry Christmas, everyone!
    May the Elf be with y’all

  7. Have a great weekend addicts ♥

  8. Ewwwww 🤣

  9. Yes spoilers please xxoxx

  10. The giant toilet would be great for April 15th…tax day!

  11. No giant toilet!!! 🤡

  12. maybe they will bring back alien head-suckers as santa hats

  13. So that’s a no to pagans 2 then? 😂

  14. I love mystery boxes! No… I don’t gamble.
    Can thEAy bring back the casino games in tsto please 😁

  15. i just wanted a tree to decorate with a daily advent gift of a tiny character to hang on it. Maybe next year 😀

  16. I’d like anything snow related; snow forts, snow fights, sledding, etc. I’m not too concerned about Xmas stuff since there’s already plenty of past content. And not to burst anybody’s Xmas bubble, but decorating a dying tree was from Roman Catholics adopting a Pagan tradition to ease religious conversion. And the image of Santa was created by Coca-cola in the 1950’s.

    The more you know…

    • Talon8770 //rick m.

      The remains of Saint Nicholas are in Italy. In 1087, the Italian city of Bari mounted an expedition to locate the tomb of the Saint. Nicholas was famous for his generous gifts to the poor, in particular presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes.[7] He was very religious from an early age and devoted his life entirely to Christianity. In continental Europe (more precisely the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Germany) he is usually portrayed as a bearded bishop in canonical robes. In the words of the soup Nazi… NO CHRISTMAS FOR YOU!!! You may want to check your facts.

      • The remark was “image,” not concept, and although it didn’t necessarily start with Coca-Cola, the red-suited jolly guy concept is actually only a little over a 100 years old – started around the early 1900s, and yeah, Christmas was absolutely placed smack on top of a Pagan celebration, and ended up merging the traditions of multiple different types of celebrations…
        See also, the Easter Bunny – a little different, and no Coca-Cola, but similar idea.

        • Ok. Let’s stop now.

          • No malice intended, Alissa, at all…
            Just standing up for my fellow tapper’s point that, while the pagan Christmas was, not surprisingly, not well recieved by many, it was, technically speaking, more traditional than Santa and stockings.
            WAY too traditional for most to enjoy… like fruitcake.

    • What about those players who have yet to have a Xmas event ? Why should they not have a chance to get yultide stuff ?

  17. Over in Quahog years ago we could leave gifts for neighbours, and it was great fun. If bring that it would encourage me to possibly visit my neighbours again, but then the time it takes to connect to neighbours towns would probably see my interest in playing Santa short lived.

  18. Maybe we’ll find out the true origin of Christmas is alien. That would explain how Santa can travel the world faster than the speed of light. And why Rudolph can light up his nose on foggy nights. It might also explain some gifts I’ve had in the past, they were definitely out of the world weird 😀

  19. Alissa you look like you a wearing a Christmas tree hat 🌲😂

  20. The mickey mouse balloon is still going! 😊

  21. The only thing that EA has to include to make a great event for me is to keep the idea of “heart” in the writing. Great animation and fun prizes are a bonus, but without “heart”, it isn’t really true to the Simpsons universe.

  22. They could “ruin” Christmas by allowing people to dump their inventory of things they don’t want and cannot sell into other peoples town.

  23. Christmas should involve giving gifts to neighbors.

  24. Can’t make the live stream as out at the moment but my question is, what is your favourite Christmas episode and your most wanted item?

  25. Did you read that idea post?

  26. Do not if this is the right place for this but there’s a Saxenda ad on this page that won’t mute sound. I hope it won’t impact my ability to listen to the episode. The ad is also forcing my screen to scroll and center on it.

  27. I’ve heard Christmas Treess are more expensive this year. Has anyone bought one and is there a definite increase in price?

  28. Only Satan … I mean Santa can save us from an alien invasion this Christmas! 😂😜

    See you live at five (UK)🖒
