New Year's Day is a special event held in the first day in January. It has appeared in every title to date since Animal Crossing. What actually happens, however, varies. On New Year's Eve, there is a countdown in anticipation of this day.

Events[edit]

Animal Crossing[edit]

From 6 a.m. to 11 a.m., villagers will gather near the Wishing Well. By talking to the villager making a wish near the well, the player is able to make their own New Year's wish by asking to go next. Katrina will also be present near the Wishing Well to read the player's fortune for the year for 50 Bells. She will give the player a letter where the fortune is written on Fortune Paper stationary.

The player receives 10,000 Bells from Mom in the mail. The player can talk to Tortimer to receive a random diary. If the player has upgraded Nook's shop past Nook's Cranny, he will also sell mystery bags for 2,000 Bells.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

The player can speak to Tortimer in this day to receive a random fortune. Tortimer can be spoken to multiple times for different fortunes.

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

The player will receive a gift from their mom, which will either be 10,000 Bells or a houseplant, although if they do not play on New Years Day, they will not receive such letter. A special cutout is available in the Event Plaza, and Isabelle will also be present there until 12 a.m.

When Isabelle is spoken to, she gives a gift, which is an animal based off the Chinese zodiac of the current year. They act as furniture and can be displayed in the player's house. All zodiac animals have the Harmonious interior theme, sell for 120 Bells at Re-Tail, and, except for the zodiac boar, are only obtainable from the event.
