I ruined Santa's life and career by gifting him diseased raccoons in the Sims 4

This story was originally published in July of 2018.

Last I checked in with the Sims 4 version of myself, I was attempting to create a red panda by breeding cats and raccoons with their own grandparents, which left me with six cuddly abominations of nature. I guess they turned out cute enough, but I essentially now live with a half-dozen filthy, chittering multicolored raccoons that I don’t know what to do with (also, one dog). As I load up that saved game, the beach I was standing on with my noisy, mutated pets is now covered with snow. I’m trying out the Sims 4: Seasons expansion, which adds spring, summer, fall, and winter, along with new weather, activities, and holidays.

I frolic in the snow a bit, building a snowman as my dirty pets screech and chitter nearby, until I become so cold I look like a white walker from Game of Thrones. I’m heading back to my tiny hovel to warm up when I spot someone walking by.

A man named Clement Frost is strolling through the neighborhood. He’s got a big white (well, gray) beard and gold-rimmed spectacles, he’s a bit on the portly side, and he’s decked out in winter-themed robes and a hat. ‘Winterfest’, the Sims’ version of Christmas, is only a few days away. Surely, this Clement Frost character is just a barely disguised Santa (or Father Winter, as the Sims 4 calls him).
