Summer is the time of year when it is warmest. In the Animal Crossing series, summer starts at June 1st and ends on August 31st. In the Southern Hemisphere in New Horizons, the season starts at December 1st and ends on February 28th/29th. In Animal Crossing, this is when the trees and grass are at their greenest.

In the final hour before the new year, villagers will talk about their past year, and the music will change several times, building in tension in the last minute with a beep for every second. After midnight, fireworks will go off in the sky and residents will wish the player a Happy New Years.

Weather[edit]

A bulletin announcing the arrival of warmer weather and the rainy season.

The weather in summer is mainly sunny with the possibility of rainfall towards the end of June/early July. The sunshine allows for the player to receive a tan when stood outside for long periods of time without holding an umbrella.

A bulletin announcing the end of the rainy season and the beginning of the hot, sunny season.

During the end of June, heavy rainfall and thunderstorms will appear with lightning, creating sudden bursts of light on the ground. On the 1st of July, an announcement on the bulletin board will tell villagers and the player in town that the end of the heavy rain is approaching, making way for heavier sunny periods. Through the first part of July, it is muggy and rainy, much like the second half of June. In the second half of July, it is hot and dry. July is one of the hottest months in the summer. In August, it's usually humid and neighbors will complain about the "stickyness". It will sometimes rain, but when it does its usually around the end of the day or the afternoon. In July, neighbors will complain it is too hot. The trees and the grass will turn into a deeper or darker shade of green.
