Does FESTIVE HOLIDAY STUFF (UK) work with the US Version (specifically the Sims 2 Store Edition)?

Possibly not. Although, I don't have a clue :P

Abel, its unlike to just spring a post, when you don't know what the answer. But its okay, dude. And my opinon is that UK and US versions of Sims2 have different, er.... 'Qualities". Maxis and EA made them specificly unlike the other, sure, the base part is like our version, but its different in ways. The object(s) should work, but the experience ingame will be unnatural to us, since it is UK. Basicly, the downloads will be different, but by aroma of something unlike. So....... Here is your answer, SUMMED UP:
THEY WILL WORK BUT THEY WILL HAVE SOMETHING UNCOMMON TO THE USA VERSIONS. Sorry for the long post, just wanted to TRY to explain.

i found the "Festive" version dirt cheap so I installed it onto my US Sims 2. All the items are there cept for one thing, I can't get Santa to come!! I heard it was random but i'm on the 10th try - tree is out, baked santa cookies, everyone asleep/in bed by 9 (including infants & pet) but no Santa....waaaah!!!!!

I'm not sure about TS2, I actually never tried to get Santa, but to get him in TS1, you needed a fireplace, too.

I do believe in Ts2 you need Seasons installed to get Santa to come- Santa requires snow and I have never had him show up with no snow

Santa definitely doesn't require Seasons - the Holiday SP came out long before Seasons. I think you need the holiday roast/cookies to have Santa come, and probably to have everyone asleep first (like burglars).

You don't have to have everyone asleep. In my game santa always arrived soon after my sims finished baking the santa cookies, and the entire household was still awake. Also, there was a tree and the christmas lights were turned on. Maybe you should make sure you're using the official christmas trees that came with the stuff pack, not custom ones.
