I am loving the new skin tones! I only wish they had put the ultimate makeover on sale because I will definitely be changing up some of my sims and it’s going to get expensive.

I'm so excited about this! :D I have a few multi-racial families who can now have more realistic skin tones. Agree that some free/cheap ultimate makeovers would have been appreciated, buy I don't want to complain too much about such an awesome change.

The 2x prizes are back for the paper boy ads. If it’s like last year it will last throughout the whole update.

True, don’t want to complain already. And I think I’m only looking at spending 48 or 60 LP anyway, so it’s not too bad.

The Santa outfits are back for adult sims (and that weird sweater outfit for adult males). They get more expensive every year - now they are §50,000. If you buy them you do keep them all year.

And all the Christmas/Holiday items are on sale. This is usually the stuff they “gift” (read, temporarily unlock) to us for the past few years spread out through a few days. I doubt we’ll have new items so maybe they’ll just give us some of these for free.

I saw santa and his sleigh fly through my town twice (when I was in town view)!! I tried to tap on him to see if it would do anything, but nothing did. Anyone else see him/remember him from past updates?

Yes, since 2012 they've had Santa with his sleigh and reindeer flying across the town up through the 25th. Tapping on him doesn't do anything but it's still a nice little touch to see him fly across the sky!

May I check if I can start the quest at a different time after it pops up, as long as it is still available? As I will be overseas when this update is available.
