Christmas 2012

December 5, 2012 - January 10, 2013

The Christmas 2012 Event was the second major event to take place in The Simpsons: Tapped Out and the first Christmas Event. It was initially released to players on December 5, 2012 and included new limited time content and added the ability to collect the limited time currency, Santa Coins, to purchase buildings and decorations. The event ended on January 10, 2013, however the snow that covered the Player's Springfield during the event remained. It subsequently disappeared upon the release of the Valentine's Day 2013 Event on January 30, 2013, twenty days after the end of the Christmas Event. To date, this is the only instance of the snow remaining after the end of the Christmas Event. The release of the Christmas 2012 Event coincided at the same time as the Level 24 update.

The Christmas 2012 event guide

Much of the new content included characters in reference to The Simpsons Christmas themed episodes, such as the Funzos. With the new currency of Santa Coins, Players could purchase new Christmas decorated façades for houses and other buildings. New decorated building façades were priced at fifty Santa Coins each, and when a building was using one of them, it would produce five Santa Coins every 24 hours and not its regular payout. Some of the other new features and quests added in the event can be found below.

During the event, the free daily bonus Mystery Boxes were replaced with Santa's Sack. Santa's Sacks gave the player between 10-20 Santa Coins. Starting January 2nd, 2013 players could spend their extra Santa Coins on Mystery Stockings. Mystery Stockings were 50 Santa Coins and contained 1-3 Donuts or Reindeer.

The event was also one of the rare updates that Electronic Arts announced before its official release. On December 3, 2012, they made a post on Facebook saying that a big update was coming soon with some holiday magic, obviously hinting to Christmas. Despite announcing the event beforehand, it was not until the next day, December 4, 2012, that they said the update would be coming on December 5.

The main questline for the event was Christmas.

Character Dialogue
Homer Icon "I can't wait till the holidays are over and I can eat all our leftover Santa coins...just like I did with the Halloween candy."
Lisa Icon "But not all those coins are made of chocolate. Some of them are made of coin."
Homer Icon "Doesn't matter. I'm still going to eat them."
Lisa Icon "How about if instead we use them to buy Mystery Stockings, which contain all sorts of goodies."
Homer Icon "And then I can eat those? Lisa, you're a genius!"
Use surplus Santa Coins to buy Mystery Stockings before the Holiday Event ends on January 10th.

And that tray of 132 donuts is now... well, Ol Gil's not that good at math. If he was, he wouldn't have to be standing out here in the cold hawking donuts. He's also not that good at grammar, always calling himself he instead of I..."
Homer Icon "Fine, I'll look at the store. Just shut up already!"
Gil Icon "Bless you, fat sir."
