  1. Will this be back next year? I really wanted the teddy bear and i finished the quest in the time limit but it still didnt give it to me. I have tried contacting EA but they were not a very big help.

  2. I needed 2 more hours left on the deliver presents that takes 10 hours and I feel asleep! I would’ve made it on time if I hadn’t fallen asleep and then I had no LP to get more time /.\ this sucks I’ve been looking at your posts everyday and everything is there any other way?

  3. Hi. I am just wondering when the 10…9…8… (New Year’s Fireworks) Quest will come on. Will it be the same tasks as last year. If so, I better start Deep Sleep early!

    • I don’t think there will be one this year, I’m just guessing but as I saw the fireworks in the online store I think we just have to buy them for real money, but we will see!

  4. I was a little upset because with family activities for the holidays I neglected my Sims. The quest ended and I only had two task left. I was given the option to spend 24 lp to extend the quest one day!! Needless to say I did it

  5. Can you create a post with pictures of your original houses. For some reason, I can never copy other designs because they use things I can’t buy, such as things that cost SP’s. Also, flooring and wallpaper seems to be a big problem too; I can’t find the right one to go with each room!

  6. I got the bear but when I went back into my sims freeplay app it said I didn’t complete it in time and now my bear is gone.?

  7. I didn’t check this guide because I figured we were all doing it at the same time anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚ But thanks for the write-up.

    On the final day I started the dance with santa at close to midnight. I got to sleep late and didn’t get up until just after 9am, which was the deadline. So it cost me 24LP to buy 24 hours to finish the quest, but it only took a few seconds to fly home. *sigh* Well, got the bear.

    BTW, the bear reminds me of the movie A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

    BTW BTW, if the bear sits down when you’re trying to talk to him, there’s a glitch where the chat will start but not count down. So the sim could be stuck there without you knowing. I think I had to exit the game, reboot, come back in with a completely fresh reload, then cancel the chat. You heard it here first folks!

  8. Hi! I extended the xmas goal a day and I just finished it, but it says ‘new goals will appear in 0min and 0sec’ and ‘come back for the dramatic finale in 0min and 0sec’. What shall I do? I have closed it and opened it twice. Please help me! I love your blog it has helped me alot!!

    • are you sure you haven’t just finished day 11? as it says come back for the dramatic finale on day 11 and day 12 is the finale
      I don’t know why the timer is stuck though, sorry!
      Thanks, I’m glad it helped

  9. I didn’t like how this quest made me play on Christmas Day! They should have released the final goals on Christmas Eve or given us until Boxing Day to complete it. In the end I got the bear with the use of lps but it was annoying ducking out of Christmas dinner to complete tasks!

    • I know, and the tasks on Christmas day were so long it was ridiculous! last year it ended on christmas eve and we got the prize on christmas day, why couldn’t they have just done that again
