A Sim Town Thanksgiving

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for The Sims FreePlay
Last Updated:

If it seemed like this one would never come well, it is here now - the FreePlay official Holiday Event! Oddly enough this Event also comes with a ticking timer, as did the last event... So FP'ers will have to get busy to get the loot at the end of this adventure!

(1) Get Three Sims in a House

For this Goal - which you find in the Holiday Goal section on the Goal Bar bottom left of your play screen, you simply need to get 3 Sims present in a house.

If you already have a household with three or more Sims resident you simply need to visit that household to unlock this goal. Easey-peasey!

(2) Be Nice to a Sim

To complete this goal simply have a Sim use the Be Nice chat action on another Sim!

(3) Bake a Pumpkin Pie

To complete this stage in the Holiday Quest have your best Baking Sim do the 10h Task of Baking a Pumpkin Pie on the best oven you have!

(4) Have Three Sims Watch Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV.

Sounds simple enough - just sit three Sims down to watch TV and choose the Parade. Watching the TV instantly unlocks this and unlocks the Thanksgiving Pilgrim Hat which can be found in the Create-A-Sim Menu!

(5) Be Funny to a Sim.

This one just requires you to use the Be Funny Action with a Sim.

(6) Cook the Turkey in the Oven

This is a 4h Task so pick your best cook and get to it! Completing this Task awards you with the Thanksgiving Table decoration.

(7) Have 3 Sims Eat a Thanksgiving Meal.

To complete this part of the Event you need to purchase the Thanksgiving Table from the Home Section of the in-game store and then have your three Sims eat the meal.

(8) Have 3 Sims Listen to a Stereo.

For this Task all that you need to do is have one Sim start listening to the Stereo and then have two others join in. Completing this Task completes the Quest and unlocks the Turkey Beanbag and the Turkey Hat! Well done you!

This nicely wraps up the Holiday Event - you should easily be able to obtain the full run and its prizes without having to spend LP but, if the timer is running short, you may want to spend a few LP to get through the Cooking bits.

According to the game's makers, turkey beanbags are in "Home > preteens" (if you beat this quest in time).

One other thing that beating the time limit unlocks are "Turkey hats" & "Pilgrim hats". They're in the "Create-a-sim" menu (read = new sims) & the "Ultimate makeover" menu (click on a sim & use 12 LP's). I looked everywhere, but I did NOT find the "Turkey beanbags" though.

A Sims Town Thanksgiving (2014 version) - Part 5

17) Ask Ms Pennyworth if the turkey can stay in (your) sim town.
Time = 5 minutes
Choose a sim, click on Ms Pennyworth (she's at your Thanksgiving house), & "Ask if turkey can stay".

That's it. Ms Pennyworth & Mr Snoody will both still leave, but if you finished the quest in time, you can buy a "Thanksgiving banquet" (3-*** table) & your own pet turkey(s).

Go into any sim's house that has either zero or one pet, go into "Buy" > furniture > pets (the "Pets" tab is between the "Dining room" tab & the "Decorations" tab), & you'll be able to buy a 3-*** pet turkey for 20 LP's. He's slightly strange for a pet.
His name is "Turkey" & you can't CHANGE his name.
He doesn't have a happiness meter.
He stays in a small outdoor turkey pen.
I haven't seen him find any money, LP's, or SP's.
If you look at the house that you give him to (on the map), he isn't counted as one of that house's pets.

How do I give the turkey attention

After ms penny shows up tap on her choose be nice then the turkey shows up in the front yard tap on it choose introduce be aware it requires several hours. Then tap again to feed it. Then you have to grow pumpkins this takes a full day. The banner and balloons are free in the section of the store where you find the Knicks knacks and oddities. The thanksgiving table is in the table and chair section. When it's time to cook the turkey tap the stove the turkey will be there in the list of things to cook just tap on it to choose it. Hope this was helpful, now for my question. Does anyone know how to play soccer in a neighbors town or put their things up for auction?

I'm posting this on October 30, 2014. Here's a few questions.
1) What day does this start on?
2) For #4 (the parade on TV goal), how long does that take? (REAL thanksgiving day parades are at least a few hours).
3) For #6 (cook the turkey in the oven), do you have to buy it from the sim town grocery store, or where do you find/buy it?
4) For #8 (listen to the stereo), how long does that take?

That event is over.

Cleaning the pool requires you to have an adult sim available to do that - just tap on the dirty pool and have them do the clean action.

That didn't show us how to use this thing. Every time I place it, I tell my sims to use it and they always have a chair in a bubble over their heads.
