What is your current game version number? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All

My Cup Runneth Over
This is my second time round the calendar, the first time was in the previous patch (one before this current one) and I had the calendar set to the shortest time and everything whipped around just fine. This time round I decided to set everything to 28 days and this time when I appeased the gnomes they didn't disappear, instead they've stayed and they constantly 'reward' me with 60 constant items, mostly seed packets (as seen above) but also fruit (they love dropping grapes). When I collect the gifts new ones spawn, again, it's endless. I thought maybe a new calendar event would make them leave, no they stayed, I then thought a change of seasons would make them go but as I type they are out there still in the snow.
Now don't get me wrong, I find this totally hilarious and it adds a whole new level of entertainment for me but I figure it's not normal since last time this never happened.
before I posted I removed cc and entered the game and they were still there, I couldn't test this on a new game because the event has been and gone, maybe you could test it, if you can simulate this try a new game and see if it happens again.
