What is your current game version number? 1.63.136.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? I own all expansions, game packs and stuff packs. Absolutely no cc or mods have ever been in my game.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have it be a holiday in game. Click buy/build. There is no holiday folder.
What happens when the bug occurs? Holiday folder is missing. Have to hunt for individual holiday stuff.
What do you expect to see? The holiday folder that contains items and decorations related to the holiday.

Please describe the patch or change you made. After installing Eco Lifestyle expansion

When in game inside any holiday, clicking the build/buy does not show the holiday folder which contains items and decor specific to that holiday. There is no holiday folder. I am aware this folder doesn’t exist outside a holiday.

The holiday category that normally appears on holidays is gone. You can search for the individual items manually but they are spread throughout the rest, making them difficult to find if you don't know ALL of their exact names.

@KimZ1111 They made their own bug report and I merged it into yours as it's the same.

 

I guess they didn't see you already made one.

@crinrict Thanks. I searched a bunch of times but couldn't find one. I knew if I missed it, you'd find it and merge them anyway. Just covering my bases. Didn't want the bug to get missed.

You're the best!

@KimZ1111A temporary workaround to this problem. If you search for holiday in the build search bar you'll see all the usual holiday decor

I'm having this issue as well. The only time I see the Holiday Items category, is if I click the popup the day before. When the popup is gone and I enter Build/Buy (even just seconds after), the category isn't there. It also doesn't show up again on the day of the holiday.

 

Searching for "holiday" is of course a workaround. I've also filtered by the Seasons and the free Holiday pack, which narrows things down a bit.
