I'm guessing if your Sim would've initiated the date, it would've completed the tradition? Is there any hover-tip text indicating you need to initiate the date yourself? If not, I can see how this is confusing. Out of curiosity, do you know if this ever used to work? I'm wondering if this broke with a patch or if it's just always worked this way.

@SimGuruNick I don’t know if it’s always worked this way either, but I would have expected it to count. I know that NPC date invites count towards the “Go on two dates” objective for the Romance aspirations, so I’d assume the holiday counter could track it too?

@SimGuruNick This is the description from the tradition:

Go on a Date - Take out that special someone, or invite out a new soon to be special someone. It's tradition! To participate, Click on the Phone and select Ask on Date. Choose another Sim and select a location for the date.

 

It seems that I must ask the Sim on the date from the description.  It is confusing because an NPC Sim always asks my Sim on a date first.  I guess maybe that is because I have Dine Out and Get Together installed.  I guess it is not a bug.  Thanks for clarifying.
