During yesterday’s Sims 4 Seasons stream, Gurus showed off the Holiday creation feature using the calendar. When adding a Holiday to the game, you can select a decoration type, the name of the Holiday, and 5 different Traditions. Traditions determine what actions Sims will partake in while they celebrate the Holiday.

The following is a list of all Traditions seen in the live stream. This list includes The Sims 4 Base Game and The Sims 4 Seasons Expansion. It has been confirmed that other games will also have traditions specific to the pack.

Each Holiday can have up to 5 traditions, or none at all. Below is a complete list of available Traditions, along with info of Sims who love or ignore them based on age or traits.
