Compatible with the July 20, 2021 Pre-Cottage Living patch.

Some of the surprise holidays with Seasons EP were fun the first time but got boring fast (I'm looking at you, talk like a pirate day!). So I figured what if I were to make them disappear from the game? Surely you can delete them once they pop up but it will get annoying if you have to do it everytime!

In a nutshell, this mod prevents surprise holidays from EVER appearing on your in-game calendar. They essentially vanish from the game. I have provided separate package files for each of the surprise holidays so you can mix and match the ones you don't want in your game, or choose to have them all disabled in one file! See download section for details.

This mod goes very well with the Make Hidden Traditions Selectable mod, so you can still use the traditions from the surprise holidays in your own holidays. The two mods does not conflict, so use away!

I can't see this needing an update in the future but if it ever does, I will sure update it.


The following resources were modified (other mods modifying these will conflict):

Thank you for adding the individual holiday files! I'm not much of a prank/brawl person, and trying to remember to check weekly for it was annoying. This makes simming much less stressful!
