I walked out of my house and a message popped up: “Merry Christmas everyone!”
I went in my house and changed into my santa suit by swapping clothes with the mannequin. Easy peasy. Outside the aurora was dancing in the night sky.
I struck up a conversation with Margie and she asked if I had met Jingle the reindeer yet. I hadn’t, so I went off in search of him.
I spied jingle hiding out behind Brewster’s Café.
Jingle went on and on about the romance of Christmas, the sound of bells, the white snow, the warm fireplace. He then went on to explain that he was delivering presents from Santa in the village…and that I looked just like Santa! And since I looked like Santa it would make everybody happy if they got their presents from me (because they’d think they were getting them from Santa himself). He asked if I’d deliver the presents and of course I couldn’t refuse.
I didn’t know if I could look in the bag. I didn’t try. It’s treated like a tool and you can equip and unequip it like one. Kokuto says you could look in it if you took it off. You just couldn’t put anything in it or take anything out.
Everybody thought I was Santa with my big white bag. I stopped by Hakase first.
I was prompted to give him a present. I knew he wanted wallpaper and I thought he was the only one who wanted wallpaper, but I had two in my bag. That meant Derry (the monkey) also wanted wallpaper—he never told me what he wanted. I had no idea which wallpaper to give Hakase. I made a snap decision and gave him the footprint wallpaper. He said it was just what he wanted. Score!
Next I delivered to Margie. I knew she wanted light blue clothes. I had a leopard shirt, a grape soda shirt, and a sky shirt. I went with the sky shirt.
She told me the sky shirt was just what she wanted. I did a happy dance and went on to find Shinobu who wanted yellow clothes. I figured the closes to that was the leopard shirt. She said she had been wanting that and changed into it immediately.
Next up: Nelson (the deer. LOL) He wanted food and I only had one food item in the bag, a peach.
I delivered to Lillian next. If you remember, both she and Iris wanted “consumer electronics.” I had no further specifics. And the electronics I was given to deliver were an upright vacuum cleaner and a 32 inch widescreen TV.
Then I stopped by Yuka’s house to deliver the remaining shirt to her. She liked her grape soda shirt.
I went to Iris’ house next. I felt a little guilty giving her the vacuum, but that was just what she wanted. Ok, I wouldn’t be mad to get a new vacuum either. I’m a little domestic that way.
Ida got my last piece of furniture, a lovely long table. She was pleased, but she said “ehehe” afterward and I was worried. That doesn’t sound like a happy noise.
Derry the monkey was my last recipient. He never told me what he wanted, but all I had was wallpaper and since Hakase was happy with the wallpaper I gave him I figured this was the right present for Derry.
Obviously I knew because I’m Santa, Derry. Certainly not because I took notes all month long.
I went back and talked to Jingle and told him I was finished. He said everybody seemed happy and I delivered what everybody wanted. And finally it was time for my present: a Christmas Wreath (I didn’t ask for that).
And that concluded the Christmas Eve festivities. Kokuto’s didn’t go quite as smoothly as mine. He didn’t write down what everybody wanted and ended up with some dissatisfied villagers. I think Jingle will send me his picture tomorrow (I’m hoping) but I don’t know if Kokuto will get it since he didn’t make everyone happy.
If anyone wants to know what I want for Christmas: a Christmas Clock—the last Christmas set item that I’m missing. If you could order one for me I’ll pay you!
Because I picked it up I figured I’d tell you about the music box I got from Kaizo. It’s very flashy. It looks rhinestone encrusted. When it’s open it plays a song, though I don’t believe the song it plays is the one I gave him (which is a good thing. It was a slow depressing hymn).
