The day after, from 8 p.m. on, Jingle will be out delivering presents. After speaking with Jingle five times, he will provide an initial gift. If the player wants more presents, they will have to change into a different shirt, which may fool the reindeer into talking to the player again. This can only be done ten times until Jingle realizes the trickery, meaning multiple seasons will be required to acquire all the items. It's also possible to receive multiples of the same item in a given season.
Different responses will yield different presents from Jingle:
- "Big things!": a piece from Jingle Series
- "Foldable things!": Jingle Shirt
- "Woven things!": Jingle Carpet
- "Printed things!": Jingle Wall
Animal Crossing: City Folk
Jingle will give the player gifts from the Jingle Series on this day. He will ask the player some questions which determine what gift he will give. If the player answers "Things you step on!", they will be given the Jingle Carpet. If the player answers "Things you lean on!", they will be given the Jingle Wall. If the player answers "Huge things!", they will be given some other furniture.
The player can change their accessory, headgear, or hairstyle so that Jingle may mistake them for another character, repeating the process. Changing shirts will not work.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
From December 1 to 23, each villager will give two clues on a desired item for Toy Day. Every villager will mention a certain color in one conversation, while in another conversation, the type of item (carpeting, clothes, electronics, food, furniture, instrument, lamp, toy, umbrella, or wallpaper). These clues are then used to correctly identify and deliver the desired item during Toy Day.
For Toy Day, the player must dress up as Santa, wearing the Santa Hat, Santa Beard, Santa Coat, and Santa Pants, all available from Able Sisters. The Santa Boots, available from Kicks, is optional. Only one of these articles are sold in Able Sisters and in Kicks from December 1 to 23; however, on Toy Day, the entire outfit can be bought at once.
At December 24, the villagers will stop giving hints, but will be seen anticipating for their presents. By 6 p.m., Jingle will appear in town, and, once dressed up as Santa, he will ask the player if they could be his partner in delivering presents. He will then give the player a magical sack called the "Santa Bag," which contains all of the villagers' requested items. The requested items are such that no two items will have the same color and type. If the bag has not been returned to Jingle, the bag will break the following day.
Giving the item to a villager requires the Santa outfit be worn and the Santa Bag be worn. Villagers will refuse to go to sleep until they have been given a present. Their reaction will depend on whether the gift given matches their preferred color and type or not. Giving the wrong present will make them look sheepish or express sarcasm, despite thanking Santa, and will express their disappointment to the player. Giving the correct present will cause them to express joy about their gift.
After delivering all the items to the villagers, the player can speak to Jingle to receive a Festive Wreath. If the player gets all the presents delivered to the correct villagers, they will be mailed Jingle's picture.
