The Sims: Livin' LargeEditA Christmas tree is a decorative object from The Sims: Livin' Large. It can be used to summon Santa Claus. In order to do so, a Christmas tree needs to be placed near a fireplace and a plate of cookies. If all Sims are asleep, Santa will appear around 3 AM and leave a present for the family.
The Sims 2: Holiday Party PackEdit
Since Roman times, trees have been decorated with lights to honor the gods of the harvest and light. Northern Europeans later adapted these rituals to fancey, new Eastern religions. Made even more popular in 19th century Germany, some contend the tree isreally throwback to the mythological Norse tree named Yggdrasil
Christmas tree returned in The Sims 2: Holiday Party Pack and The Sims 2: Happy Holiday Stuff. It's one of the requirements for Santa Claus to appear. Sims can turn on the decorative lights on the Christmas tree. Players should be careful though, as leaving the tree on for too long will set itself on fire.
Is it morning yet? What did he bring me? Is the big one mine? It better not be socks. The suspense is killing me! Gimme, gimme, gimme!
The Christmas Tree can be downloaded as a part the More Holiday Presents free set from The Sims 3 Store. It is only used as a floor light with high environment score, but Sims won't do anything about it.
