On December 3, 2012, The Simpsons: Tapped Out's official Facebook page posted a message: "Let it snow! Springfield's in for some holiday magic with a big new update... coming soon!" - which implied that the update would be released sometime in the first week of December. It was announced on Tapped Out's Facebook page on December 4 that the holiday update would be released on December 5 (the same day when Tapped Out would no longer be able to be played on 1st and 2nd generation iPod touches and iPhones), and in that post was also an image of Santa Homer - a new outfit for Homer that was introduced in the update. With the update also comes a new icon for the game, and a new opening menu.

The features were going to be available until January 3, 2013; it was announced through Tapped Out's Facebook page on December 19, 2012 that the time the Christmas content would be available had been extended. Until January 2, 2013, it was unknown what date it has been extended to; on that date there was an update, changing the end date of the Christmas content from January 3, 2013 to January 10, 2013.

A Santa's Sack, which costs Donut Tapped Out.png5.

Players can buy a Santa's Sack (costing Donut Tapped Out.png5), which includes 10-20 Santa Coins - a new currency in the update. As long as the holiday event lasts, players will be given Santa's Sacks instead of Mystery Boxes in their Daily Bonus.

Many users on the Tapped Out forums reported that they had seen Kodos shooting at the ray gun in her spaceship while she flies across a friend's Springfield. Many thought it was a bug, but it is likely a clue to what could happen next - Kodos being introduced as a character.

A promotional image for the update.

Also, many users on the Tapped Out forums reported (one even showing an image) that Gil Gunderson would appear and give the player a 25% off offer on donuts. This was true, but EA had removed Gil from the game, presumably because of the problems surrounding Tapped Out players being locked out of their games. On December 19, 2012, users reported that Gil had appeared in their Springfield after an update. This update also changed Barney's "Sober Up" task from an 8 hour task to a 4 hour task. There was also an update on December 23, 2012, adding another of Gil's offers to the game.

In the App Store description of the game, a "Kiddie Ride" is said to be one of the decorations added with the update. However, the only sighting of a kiddie ride in the game is a one outside the in-game Try-N-Save building.

Reports started on the Tapped Out forums on December 29, 2012 that players could get "Mystery Stockings" for Tapped Out Santa Coin.png50, and that they would have either donuts or a Reindeer in. There have been several more reports since then, and in late January 2, 2013 or early January 3, 2013 (depending on the time zone), the end of the update was officially extended to January 10, 2013, and the Mystery Stockings were introduced officially.

Holiday Spot was used to advertise the update.

Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Ho-ho-ho, just wait until you see what I've got for you today.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Is it a pony?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Is it a large screen TV? 'Cause I could stop breaking in to the Brown House if I had one of those.

The Santa's Village, Holiday Tree and Santa Homer offer appears, with Gil in the picture saying "Celebrate consumerism with this holiday inspired theme park and tree!". This promotion was supposed to have lasted between December 13, 2012 and December 16, 2012, but Gil was removed from the game presumably because of players being locked out.

Gil was introduced in an update on December 19, 2012, and the offer lasted between December 19, 2012 – December 22, 2012. The offer is that the player can get Santa's Village, the Holiday Tree and Santa Homer for 200 Donuts instead of its 275 Donut Value. Once the offer is up, Gil will disappear from your Springfield.

According to the game files:

If the player accepts the offer
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Honey, I made a sale! Tell the kids I'll be home for Christmas! What do you mean I'm not welcome? You got remarried already?!
If the player declines the offer
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Hi, honey? I need you to tell the kids Christmas is cancelled again this year.

Once tapping on Gil's "Donut" speech bubble
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Ho-ho-ho boy. Have I got a Christmas miracle for you! To celebrate the season, all donut packages come with 25% more donuts! Which means a dozen is now 15. 50 is the new 40! And that tray of 132 donuts is now... well, Ol Gil's not that good at math. If he was, he wouldn't have to be standing out here in the cold hawking donuts. He's also not that good at grammar, always calling himself he instead of I...
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Fine, I'll look at the store. Just shut up already!
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Bless you, fat sir.

The offer appears, showing Gil in a Santa Suit picking up a green donut from a plate of white, red and green donuts. On the table is a picture of the Simpsons, but a cut-out of Gil has covered most of them. He is saying "Celebrate the season with even more donuts!".

The "25% More Donuts" offer lasted between December 23, 2012-December 27/28, 2012. The offer was added to the game in an update (released on December 23, 2012). This promotion was supposed to have lasted between December 19, 2012 and January 2, 2013, but Gil was removed from the game presumably because of players being locked out. Once the offer is up, Gil will disappear from your Springfield.

This offer is called "DayOldDonuts" in the game files.

If the player declines the offer
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Ah, jeez! Guess the kids will have to go the another Christmas without presents... or electricity.

In the store, the donut pictures have a new Christmas design.

  • Dozen Donuts now comes with 3 more donuts
  • Stack of 60 Donuts now comes with 15 more donuts
  • Tray of 132 Donuts now comes with 33 more donuts
  • Truckload of 300 Donuts now comes with 75 more donuts
  • Store Full of 900 Donuts now comes with 225 more donuts
  • Boatload of 2400 Donuts now comes with 600 more donuts

There were several reports on the Tapped Out forums of a bug which does not allow players to access their Springfield after purchasing donuts with the offer.

Messages[edit]

If you tap on Gil, these dialogue boxes will appear:

Tapped Out Gil Icon.png If you're won't buy something, can you at least push me in front of an expensive looking car?

Mystery Stockings[edit]

Tapped Out Mystery Stocking.png

Mystery Stockings contain donuts or a reindeer and cost Tapped Out Santa Coin.png50. There was an update on January 2, 2013 installing the Mystery Stockings and the dialogue following into the game, but they didn't appear until January 3, 2013. Before this, there were several reports on the Tapped Out forums of Mystery Stockings from players who had jailbroken devices and were able to 'time-travel' to when the Mystery Stockings were available. The stockings contain 1-3 donuts or a Reindeer. The stockings were introduced to allow the players to convert their excess Santa Coins to permanent items, which was opposed to the experience after the Halloween content update, when the surplus of treats just vanished.

Once the player goes into their Springfield
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I can't wait till the holidays are over and I can eat all our leftover Santa coins...just like I did with the Halloween candy.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png But not all those coins are made of chocolate. Some of them are made of coin.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Doesn't matter. I'm still going to eat them.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png How about if instead we use them to buy Mystery Stockings, which contain all sorts of goodies.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png And then I can eat those? Lisa, you're a genius!
Notice "Use surplus Santa Coins to buy Mystery Stockings before the Holiday Event ends on January 10th."
