Please include Christmas Decorations in the base game

I didn't like having to wait several years before we got a christmas tree from the store. Please include xmas trees in the base game along with wreaths,mistletoe,poinsettie,gingerbread houses,outdoor lights and decorations and so much more.

My sims take this holiday like I do. I had to download a cc tree till we got the store one in the sims 3. I don't want to have to again. The sims 2 had xmas trees in the base game I believe as did the sims 1.

    Yea they should add them as well I agree for people who don't celebrate christmas. They need to also cover kwanza and hannaka.

    I think holiday items like that are exactly what should go in the store. That way people can pick and choose based on which holidays they celebrate.

    Personally, I couldn't care less about Christmas. It's the Halloween items that I can't live without. :D

    I agree :lol: . Then I can choose not to have it in my game. I have no need of christmas, menorah, hanukkah, kwanzaa (well, the only kwanza I ever had was Angola's money, when I worked there as an expat :P ) decorations.

    I would like them to put other generic decorations instead that can be used by any player, in the base game. Then put these holiday decorations in the store, free for download by anyone who wants them.

    They should have a holiday expansion pack! I hate waiting for it though.

    Tip: The Sims 2 didn't have a christmas tree in the base game, and neither should the Sims 4. it's left out for a reason, and if they include those decorations, they have to include the many, many other ones from different holidays. And there's a lot. So I'd rather have them separate, not in the base game. I won't be using then anyways.

    Meh, there wasn't much controversy at the time Happy Holiday Stuff for Sims 2 was released. The decorations in that stuff pack were awesome (especially the deer lights on the lawn).

    Having a Santa sim deliver presents to your Sim every winter doesn't seem bad either. He really isn't a symbol of any religion.

    ^ I still don't see why they should repeat that again and once again leave other holidays shunned to the side. Well, actually, if it was a separate stuff pack/ free-store-deal/ thingy, I didn't mind. But that's not what the OP was asking.
    Edit: I see a menorah, but nothing that really deviates much from christmas. It seems like a uniform, christmas SP.

    I think Christmas trees were added with Livin Large in the Sims 1. They were not in the base game. They have holiday themed store objects for the Sims 3 that you can download for free periodically and one of them is a Christmas tree. They might do something similar for the Sims 4

    Holiday items in the store would be nice. All separate pieces though. I wouldn't want kwanza stuff unless it's nice general wall art like we have in sims 3. I love Christmas for it's true meaning including the lights, tree, stockings and things. :P

    yes that would be good, as everyone else says if you don't like it delete it or don't use it

    I have no problems having items from other peoples cultures because sims isn't all about me and my culture it's about making a diverse community of sims from all over the world

    That's not the problem though. I could say the same thing against your argument.
    "If you want that stuff, just download it from the Sims 4 store (assuming it would be like we have it now). Don't force it into the base game."
    The problem I have is with them providing a semi-slew of christmas stuff but ignoring the many, many other holidays around that time, and then I'd have to use christmas stuff if I want any kind of celebration at all.
    Just leave it separate like it's supposed to be, what's so bad about that?

    I don't see why we need to argue about this :lol: . I don't think there is any christmas decoration that came with TS series base game before. The decorations were came with SP/EP in TS1 and 2 and free store items in TS3. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    It would be nice to include other generic decorations items in base game and holiday decorations as free store items like TS3. In this case we have more items and everyone happy. :mrgreen: .

    Happy ?? :lol: . Well unless you just want to argue for the sake of arguing.

    I would like to be able to celebrate Christmas and New Years in the game, like we could in Sims 2 with Santa Claus and Father Time. I would appreciate it being in the base game or at least in a separate EP/SP like Sims 2. I would also like holidays and festivals like we have in TS3 Seasons now.

    Happy Simming! :)

    I would like Santa back - as long as he doesn't drop the gifts and then monopolize the bathroom for 3 or 4 sim hours like in 2. :D

    You took the words right out of my mouth. :lol:

    The only holiday I care about is Halloween. Seriously, I leave the decorations up almost all year. I want my sims to do the same. :wink:
