I haven't tested this, but this seems to be what everyone is saying - you can finish when you finish for these daily tasks It is also what it looked like on the little percentage meter for the day - it was just about the tasks, not about a time limit of 24 hours, or until midnight in your time zone. Mine only had a percentage.

Yes you do. I didn't finish the task til well after midnight. When it finally finished it gave me the chair then the goals for the next day came straight up.

I thought the quests were supposed to be fun, but if you thought yesterday was bad, get ready for a stretch of over 17 hours! &@#$%@ monkeys!

Today's goals (with times):
- Talk to Santa (1 min)
- Ask Thinking Man about Elves (3 hours 30 mins)
- Admire Machine (4 secs)
- Look closer at the machine (7 hours 7 mins)
- Be on hold with Tech Support (3 hours)
- Ask Santa about Vacuum (6 hours 30 mins)
- Sing carols with Santa (4 mins)

I chose to start at midnight and skip the first goal with LPs. That makes it doable for me, but really we shouldn't have to sacrifice a good night's sleep just to play a game. Also, our extended family Christmas celebration is this evening. I am sure that is true for others as well. Real life events should not be crowded out by the game.

The only thing fun about these quests is that you give us a heads up, Perturbee! Thank you!

I love the Christmas decorations, so I want to spend LP's on those rather than speeding through tasks. You're making that possible. I'm also more willing to spend money on the game when I don't have to waste it accelerating tasks.

Does anyone know how much the staircase, North Pole decoration, snow globe, and reindeer will cost?

(Besides the first free ones).

Looks like I'll be burning the midnight oil too. :(
Distinctly unimpressed with EA.
Actively playing my old game for as long as I can.
