Ho Ho Ho Holiday Tappers!
Bust out the tinsel and be sure to hang those stockings by the chimney with care because Christmas time is in the air! That’s right my friends, Christmas (and snow, lots and lots of snow) has hit our pocket-sized towns!
This year EA is trying something different, as I’ve laid out in this post, in that Christmas 2018 consists of multi-events. Basically, the Simpson family will host four stories to be told over the course of December with a new story releasing each week. As we’re taken through each story a series of prizes are released to correspond with the theme of the story. For Week 4, Act 4, we’re following a Polar Express tale, as told by Maggie (through Homer), and the prizes we unlock all fit into the visit to the North Pole theme.
So let’s take a look at the third prize this week, Mrs. Claus…
Mrs. Claus is a FULL Character for Springfield, and is part of the A Simpsons Christmas Special Character Collection:
How You Unlock it:

Mrs. Claus does come with a full questline, here’s a look at that questline:
NOTE: Her questline will not unlock until you’ve completed the Act 4 questline (ie unlock all of the Act 4 prizes). After that, you’ll see her questline popup. It’s also through her questline that you’ll unlock all of her tasks. So a little patience is required 🙂
The Party Claus Pt. 1
Mrs. Claus starts
Santa Claus: Good morning, Mrs. Claus. Christmas Eve — biggest day of the year! Wakey-wakey!
Mrs. Claus: *growls* Close the shade. Too bright!
Santa Claus: Peppermint, you weren’t up late drinking eggnog with the elves, were you? We’ve talked about this…
Mrs. Claus: Of course not! Uggghhhhhh…
Santa Claus: That’s a relief! Listen, I don’t like to nag, but without you, the toys just won’t get finished. So do you think maybe…

Santa Claus: That’s my sober girl!
The Party Claus Pt. 2
Mrs. Claus: Egg! Nog! Where are those stupid elves…
Worker Elf 2: You know our names aren’t “Egg” and “Nog”, right?
Mrs. Claus: Who cares? How’r the toys coming along. All done?
Worker Elf 1: Not even close! You never give us a moment’s peace to work! All year, it’s: “drink this, Egg!”; “Put down that hammer and par-tay, Nog!”
Mrs. Claus: Shh! My husband doesn’t know about my drinking.

Mrs. Claus: Okay, shhhh. I just need a moment to think…

Mrs. Claus: Just a little hair of the reindeer…
Worker Elf 2: Just go away! Let us work for once!
Mrs. Claus: Good thinking. Finally, an elf with a friggin’ clue. I’m-a gonna nap… *snores*
The Party Claus Pt. 3
Mrs. Claus: Okay, how we doing, elfishes? We must be swimmin’ in friggin’ toys by now.
Worker Elf 1: No thanks to you!
Mrs. Claus: Hey, watch it, Elf! I can have you melted down whenever for why-ever. Look, I had a bad morning. So I took a much-needed nap. Then a shvitz, another nap, and now I’m on my game. Let’s make some friggin’ toys.
Worker Elf 1: There’s no time! We’re not going to make it!
Mrs. Claus: Nonsense. I’m here now. I have a hammer, and a paintbrush, and who’s up for making a billion friggin’ toys, jerks?! Woo-hoo!

Mrs. Claus: Woo-hoo, elfs! Mama Claus in da house! Toys be finished and whatever! Let’s celebrate!
The Party Claus Pt. 4
Santa Claus: Mother?! You look a wreck! Don’t tell me you’ve been drinking eggnog during the day.
Mrs. Claus: Oh, lighten up. Have some fun for once. S’Christmas time!
Santa Claus: Wait a minute, some of these toys are still wet with paint. Don’t tell me you all didn’t finish your work until the last minute?! Again!

The Party Claus Pt. 5
Santa Claus: Now dear, you’ve obviously come down with some sort of stomach bug. It’s the only explanation for your symptoms. You sure you don’t want me to stay home tonight?
Mrs. Claus: *hiccup* No, it’s the most important night of our year. You go. The elves will look after me.
Santa Claus: Feel better, love.
Mrs. Claus: *rips back blankets and jumps out of bed* Alright boys, the Christmas Spirit has left the building, so you know what time it is!

Worker Elf 2: Okay, look. We got lucky this year, but I REALLY think we should get an early start on next year’s presents. Whaddya say?
