Nook Shopping seasonal event

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
A letter from Nook Shopping notifying the player of new seasonal items

Nook Shopping seasonal events are minor events in Animal Crossing: New Horizons that offer one or more unique items to purchase via Nook Shopping. This mechanic was introduced in the 1.2.0 April Free Update. Unlike standard events, most seasonal events are not celebrated in-game aside from the items and are not unlocked until the day of the event; this is done by checking via the internet to verify if the date is accurate, meaning they cannot be accessed prior to the event date by manipulating the Nintendo Switch system clock. Each seasonal event lasts around a month and features various unique items, a description of that event or the items in the real-world, and the countries or regions it is celebrated in.[nb 1] Seasonal items from Nook Shopping do not appear in the catalog.

All items are available in all regions at the same time, with the exception of the Summer and Winter Solstices, which have different dates in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres beginning in version 1.6.0.
