This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
SANDALS?!
Why are there sandals on the new update wall lights? 'Cause in Australia it is summer right now, yes! Australians celebrate Christmas in summer! While that sounds incredible, most of us do not put sandals on the holiday lights, i actually think they don't do that either! I'm here to correct EA's mistakes and give you neutral holiday lights, and also a bonus! RECOLORS! Yes! You can match most of EA's light color shades with my recolors which will color the light bulbs.

THIS IS NOT AN OVERRIDE, IT WILL APPEAR AS A NEW OBJECT
They are in fact called Holiday Hanging Lights, you can simply type that in the search box of the sims 4 and they will pop up!

PRICE
The price is exactly the same as the previous one, which is 90.

SO MANY COLORS
It's actually just 9 but hey, EA ain't gave you any light bulb colors did they? All swatches shown in the preview pictures!

I absolutely love them, thanks! By the way, I live in Gran Canaria and we do wear flip flops these days, even being winter here ('cause our winter is like 18ºC), but yeah, wall lights with flip-flops... better save them for a surf themed bar

I agree the sandals lights are crazy for the holidays but I do think they are great for a beach party. So thankyou for not overriding it, Love these they are so pretty. But can you do them alternating including green, white, red? (Only if you can)

I thought the summer themed Christmas stuff was comical. the sand snowman is my favorite. I'm probably going to use those for a beach scene, and not for a Christmas scene. XD

I'm Australian too, you can play beach cricket or volleyball and throw a snag on the BBQ, typical Aussie Christmas, I tell you! when i saw the thongs lights, i thought it was weird and the santa with a surfboard, lol, I guess EA didn't want us Aussies missing out on things for Christmas for Australians, it's always been an American theme, though would love to have fake snow or even light up reindeers for lawn ornaments.

@Nysha Love the colours by the way! Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas to everyone!

~ The reason they put "Aussie Thongs" (we do not call them 'Flip flops' & no, thongs go on your feet over here & not where you sit!LOL) on the Christmas lights was a way of EA apologising for closing the AU & NZ EA forums,(Australia & New Zealand Forums) we are now combined with the US again (like in Sims 3) they made the pack as a celebration of our Christmas in the heat,but also to say "SORRY"
~ We do use strings of "Aussie Thongs" on Australia day,were the day turns Red,White & Blue, or Red,Yellow & Black for our indigenous Aussies!
~ I laughed when I saw this straight after the release of the Christmas pack,thought I would explain why! We were all very said that our Forums were closing! It was a step back for us, as we had been there since the Sims 4 was launched!
