The Sims 2: How to Get Santa to Come for Christmas

You need just a few things to get Santa to come to visit

To get Santa to come for Christmas in The Sims 2, you need to have The Sims 2 Holiday Edition or The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack installed. Add a chimney and a Christmas tree to your home, then bake cookies and send your Sims to bed early to get presents from Santa.

These instructions apply to The Sims 2 for all platforms (PC, PS2, and PSP).

How to Summon Santa to Visit for Christmas

When you want Santa to visit your Sims, follow these steps:

  1. Build a chimney and buy a Christmas tree. The tree doesn't need to be placed anywhere specific, but it needs to be on the lot.

  2. Bake Santa's Cookies sometime in the evening. Santa's Cookies can be found under the Serve Desserts menu on the fridge. A Sim needs to have one cooking skill and own a stove with an oven.

    Make the cookies in the evening to ensure the Sims don't eat all the cookies before Santa arrives.

  3. Send your Sims to bed by 9 p.m. That way, Santa can work uninterrupted during the night. You don't want Sims waking up while Santa is leaving presents behind.

  4. Santa Clause will arrive and leave presents for the family. He will eat a cookie, spend a few hours doing many belly laughs, and use the bathroom a few times.

    If you let your Sims see Santa, they will cheer and act surprised.
