    <font color=red>I have a very important question...
    think carefully before you answer...
    you never know when "he's" listening...
    Have your Sims been Naughty or Nice this year??
    SimSanta could be anyone, so decide early if naughty or nice is the way to go!</font color=red>

    This year at the Stratics Christmas Party (events post coming soon) we plan to have a Sim Secret Santa gift exchange. Please PM me by Dec 8th 2007 with your sim name in TC3 or IM me in game if you want to participate. We're hoping to get everyone to give custom content a try with this event so get creative! For those that can't attend the party we'll make alternate arrangements for your gift exchange.

    <font color=green>Christmas is often a special time in TSO and I'd like to hear about your favorite stories:
    Have you ever gotten an amazing or touching gift from a fellow sim? Given one?
    Do you have any sim christmas miracles to tell us about?
    Does your sim family have any traditions?
    Do you decorate your lot with a christmas theme?
    What is your favorite thing about christmas in TSO?</font color=green>
     
  2. Oh, my sims LOVE Christmas and usually spend it in Mount Fuji Exclusively.

    They like to go shopping for unique little gifts to give simmie friends and simmie family members. (and no!! they don't just give out a bunch of teddy bears either.) Each sim getting a gift is generally getting something 'special' the my sim thinks no one else will think to give them and maybe give them a chuckle.

    They LOVE to decorate. They get the paint/wallpaper/carpet out and redo their houses in festive colors of the season.

    My sims gave up giving Xmas Eve get togethers or parties all together because they were rather sad when no one showed up for them. So they just hang out at the big house hoping to spot Santa and hoping he'll bring them something special.

    Think my sims have plans in TC3 this year though? Weren't our sims going caroling?

    (naughty or nice? hmmm I know a couple of mine have been very very bad little sims. Which in some circles could be a nice thing?)

    Count me in for the Secret Santa thing! (walks away scratching head as to what to get.)

    For me the best part about x-mas is that in January I get to heat my house with all the coal I get for x-mas.

    I have been very nice this year. You may hear rumors to the contrary. However, you know you can not believe any rumors in TSO. I hope Santa knows better as well. [​IMG]

    Looks like a lot of fun Niki. I'd participate, but I often forget I am and I go into hermit mode. I'm not good with all that stuff.

    Can't wait to read about it though.

    Update: We only have 5 people signed up for secret santa...surely we can do better then this!! Send me some mail peoples!

    There is a very small chance that EA Land "might" be open in time for the party, if so it will take place there. Woot!
     
  9. Niki did you get my message in the game that I want to be a part of Secret Santa????

  17. Hi Niki - My sims Astrid &amp; Marcelle would like to be a part of Secret Santa - the only problem is that being in New Zealand, I am not always on at the same time as most players in the States - would I still be able to participate and if so, how would it work. Remember I am like 18 hours ahead of you!

    Thanks and I think its a great idea by the way!!!

    Unfortunately, I have only one thing to offer - a Christmas Goose. Sadly, since most of the ladies of TSO have already acquired this gift from me, I feel a second one would not be well received. [​IMG]

    However, if the party begins to drag, please feel free to call on me, as I am always happy to help out in a pinch. [​IMG]
