Seasons Holidays for AU/NZ Simmers

G'day Simmers!

I find it just a tad annoying that there isn't a "switch hemispheres" option in Seasons that switches NYE/Christmas/etc to the opposite seasons.
Instead, I had to switch them manually on top of adding relevant holidays. A bit tedious but I won't complain too much.

Because it took a while to properly set them up, I thought I'd share my holiday setup for anybody wanting to skip some of the hassle.
You'll still have to make them yourself, but at least you won't have to figure out the days/attributes.


As you can see, my holidays follow the same kind of vague/nonspecific naming scheme as the EA's, you can name them whatever you want.
National Day is very obviously Australia Day, which I added in purely so I could use the BBQ attribute.
I also added Halloween and Bunny Day (Easter) and took out that Thanksgiving Day one, since we don't have that here.
I know that some of them fall into the wrong season. It's better that way, as the alternative is having holidays almost back to back.
You can fit them all into the right seasons if you use the longer season times (14 days/28 days)
I just personally prefer 7 days, gameplay-wise.

Here are the attributes I used (I changed some of the EA ones too) but you can use whatever you feel like:

Have fun and HAPPY SIMMING!

    When I put the seasons to the test I had the AFL Grand Final in Spring, Christmas and New Year in Summer, Easter in Autumn and Territory Show Day in Winter. The last one is a combination of Territory Day (which isn't a holiday but we have fireworks) and Show Day which, is a holiday. :)

    ~ And a Tip if you do not want the pesky gnomes causing havoc in your home Just delete the "Harvest Festival" from your Calendar!
    ~ I personally like them, as they leave an amazing amount of Seed packets, to get your gnomes happy, they just ♥"LOVE"♥ Coffee! So my gift to them is always Coffee! Then I get my Sims to Sing with them, every time I get my Sims to Sing with them they leave Seed packets, oh & BTW if you have gnomes in your garden they will also join in the event & also give you Gifts, if you have done everything right & your Sim does not have the Nasty,Mean or insane, Sorry Erratic Trait, (they tend to Kick them, & you have to watch those Sims like a hawk in this Event!) Then you should reap the rewards, I often get around the 100 mark in seed packets, & mostly the rarer ones! B) <3 B)

    You can also turn off the gnomes by simply deleting that tradition from harvest festival. You don't need to delete the whole holiday, just edit how it's celebrated!

    I love the idea of switching the seasons around - and National Day is genius. I think I'll do something for Waitangi Day!
