Main appearances

New Year's Day is an event in the Animal Crossing series held on the first day of January, representing the real-life holiday of the same name. It has appeared in every title to date since Animal Crossing. What actually happens during the event varies between the games, however. On the day prior to New Year's Day, the Countdown occurs in anticipation of the new year.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

The player talking to Tortimer in Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, villagers will gather near the Wishing Well from 6 AM to 11 AM. 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 stationery.

Additionally, the player receives 10,000 Bells from Mom in the mail, and they 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 each.

In Wild World[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, the player can speak to Tortimer in this day to receive a random fortune. Tortimer can be spoken to multiple times for different fortunes.

In City Folk[edit]

Tortimer greeting the player in City Folk

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, Tortimer gives the player a New Year's Shirt corresponding to the current year (up to 2035), and the player will also receive 1,000 Bells from Mom.

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the player will receive a gift from their mom, which will either be 10,000 Bells or a house plant, although if they do not play on New Year's 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 AM.

When Isabelle is spoken to, she gives the player 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 items have the Harmonious interior theme, sell for 120 Bells at Re-Tail, and, except for the Zodiac Boar, are only obtainable from the event.
