The notifications have always been a bit off. I was getting notifications that the Gingerbread house was going to be whisked away after I unlocked it, the splash screen for their birthday didn't pop up until after their birthday, earlier this year their were notifications to unlock the rainbow unicorn after the event for it was over, and I remember specifically one time in 2013 where I got a notification to unlock a pool cleaner by doing the diving hobby. I hurriedly tapped on the notification to go into the game spent some LPs to complete the diving faster only to realize that everything looked normal, the event was over the day before. That was the last time I paid attention to their notifications and the last time I stopped playing the game (had only been a week!) without checking some other place for info. At least we can say they are consistent! :lol:

I paid 10 LPs to go to the 4th day and then when that day's tasks were finished, I should have been able to go straight to the next day, because the timer should have been up. Instead the timer showed more than 23 hours till the next day so my 10 LPs was lost unless I wanted to keep shelling out 20 LPs to advance the 5th and 6th days. So if you want to save LPs, wait to advance later in the quest. This is a new problem, since previously the advancement passed to the next days. :(

So I just finished Day 4 of the quest and am waiting for Day 5 currently. Is it normal that I can't scroll in between prizes on the task screen after winning the prize for Day 4? I still have a timer. Is it glitches or not? Can I do a Cloud save and still finish?

That is normal! When there are multiple things to unlock throughout the quest you are always unable to scroll between prizes on the task screen when you get to the last prize. As long as you still have the timer and it is not blank where the prize is shown you are perfectly fine to save to the cloud!

Thank goodness! I couldn't remember if this happened in the past, and started freaking out because it's similar to the glitch.

I don't remember the advancement passing on to the next days. Unless I am not understanding what you are saying? This is how I remember it working for the Night of the Candy Monsters quests and I think it worked that way for The Christmas Chill quest. When I paid LP to skip days during the Night of the Candy Monsters quest after each day the time to wait for the next day got longer. I got up to 3 days and 23 hours to wait before the last day started for that quest.

It is set up to where you do feel like you have to keep paying to skip the wait times otherwise skipping is pointless. I guess if you know you will be busy on Day 3 you can pay to skip the waiting time between Day 2 and Day 3 so you get Day 3 done early and then just wait to continue Day 4 like normal as opposed to trying to play catch up later. Otherwise, if you have the time and can play the game each day it is better/cheaper to just skip the wait time for the last day.

Wow, that's strange, because I know that I was able to skip ahead for Night of the Candy Monsters and the game didnt give me added wait time then.
