Thank you, Jordi, for adding in father Time & the New Year's baby outfit. I had missed them originally.

This mod hides the Christmas outfits & hats. To see them again next Chrsitmas, simply move this out of your downloads folder. This should hide all of the Santa hats, all of the Elf hats, the Santa outfit & the Mrs. Santa outfit.

I am fairly certain i got them all, but if you still see any in the catalogs - let me know

The added benefit to this is that your townies will no longer be able to draw from these outfits - so - no townies running around with Santa hats! Please note - it won't affect sims that already have these outfits - it just hides them from being in the catalog & from allowing the townies to select from them. If the townie already has the hat then you'd need to teletprt the townie, use the mind control mirror & then change appearance. This will prevent new townies from getting the Santa hat or outfit to start with.

Thank you so much for making this. It always annoyed me how when a sim graduated from college they'd dress like Santa or Ms. Claus.

I was disappointed to find that the Holiday Pack couldn't be removed easily. So, removing/hiding the objects is the next best thing.

Could you include ALL the objects from the pack as well as the ones you have already? I find they clutter up my catalog with items I won't be using for another year.

Thanks for what you have allowed us to remove.

I got the holiday edition sims 2 as a gift (Idon't celebrate christmas) & it really buged me yesterday when I saw my vamp teen & her undead zombielike mom sitting at the main dining table in my castle eating christmas cookies! Does it get rid of the food also?

Unforunately there isn't any way to hide the Christmas objects or the cookies. Objects are different than clothing - there just isn't a way to hide them.

Well, feel free to make a mod that hides the Christmas objects. I could not find any Property Sets for the objects, which is why I said they are different than the clothing. With the clothing it is simply the matter of switching one flag - either off or on. I don't think it is quite that simple for the objects, but I really don't know.

From the looks of it, people would appreciate having a mod to hide their Christmas objects, too.

Morague: would it be possible to change this 'flag' in custom clothing, so newly spawned townies/dormies/downtownies can use them?

I like & want the Holiday stuff - that's why I bought it. I thought there would be a way to uninstall it during the 11 months of the year that I would not be using it. It just seems kind of pointless to me to have to scroll through all of the Santa hat needlessly. It isn;t Christmas every day in my sims household anymore than it is in my real one.

The other thing is when the Santa hats are visible it means the townies can randomly be assigned them. Now, I don't know about you, but it bothers me that I have townies running around in formals with Santa hats. The only way to change this was to teleport them in, mind control them & make them change their hair. In order to prevent thatfrom happening for the next 11 months I chose to make this mod to hide the hats. I thought others would use it so I posted it.

I'm sick of all the xmas stuff too. It would be great to get rid of all that. But I'm glad of getting rid of at least the clothes though. Thanks for this!

Brilliant! One quirk I've noticed after installing this mod is that new AM sims in bodyshop always seem to roll the santa hat, but it's not a complaint, it's pretty fun

the thing is, AM sims do always roll the Santa hat in Bodyshop, the one with the gray hair for some reason. So do elder males. I have to change hair all the time. but I don't expect anyone to read this, let alone reply these days..
