Happy Simsgiving from The Sims!



Via The Sims Community Blog

There’s one in almost every culture. It goes by different names – the Chung Chiu Moon Festival in China, Pongal in the southern part of India, the UK’s Harvest Festival or Erntedankfest in Germany. In North America we refer to it as Thanksgiving. And while they may fall on different days and be part of different traditions, they all have one thing in common: a time to take a moment to give thanks for all the good things in one’s life.
The Sims team has many reasons to be thankful. We work with an incredibly creative community every day. It’s with that in mind that we’d like to give you an opportunity to share your creativity with us and each other by creating cards that celebrate Simsgiving.
We’re accepting artwork between now and the end of November. We invite you to take on the spirit of gratitude (and great food!). It’s easy! Just follow these steps:
