  1. I am seeing antler jobs with Mr. Winter and White Witch Burns are there others? Read through your guides but not finding this, maybe I am just missing it, could you give us a list?

    • Yes, just realised if you either visit a Friends town or Krustyland it fixes the glitch. Wish I’d thought of that earlier – my gnome’s been on the lose all day! Doh!

  2. Gutted – I have Santa Flanders skin but not the homer skin or Santa village (that was one of the main returning items I wanted :0( Any idea if they will show up separately later?

  3. First couple of times I found the gnome there was a guide to find him. But not now and I’ve looked for him for ages and cannot find him so have given up. It says he is loose in my town.

    • Me too – first Christmas glitch. Can’t find him anywhere and have a good search. Need that radar back!
