Jingle, a reindeer who appears on Toy Day

December is the twelfth month in the Animal Crossing series. It is the first month of winter in the Northern Hemisphere, where snow sticks on the ground after December 10 (or December 9 in Animal Crossing), making it possible to create snowboys from snowballs on the ground. It is also the first month of summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and is where it is possible to find and catch a shark. The December Solstice occurs during this month, where it is the shortest day in the Northern Hemisphere and the longest day in the Southern Hemisphere.

Toy Day is celebrated throughout this month as a stand-in for Christmas (this holiday is not in Wild World). Jingle makes a prominent role as the host of Toy Day.
