In the games
Animal Crossing: City Folk
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
This event is celebrated by Isabelle standing out in the Event Plaza, and she will give the player a Blue Glow Stick, which cannot be obtained anywhere else. At Winter Solstice, it will be night all day, and many villagers, especially snooty ones and Isabelle, will complain about the cold. A four-person cutout board will be stood out in the Event Plaza as well.
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
Like other minor events, the villagers will notify about this event.
Real life definition
The winter solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet's semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined away from the star (sun) that it orbits. This happens twice each year, at which times the sun reaches its lowest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole. However, what is seen in New Leaf is actually known in the real world as a "polar night", in which the sun is not visible for more than 24 hours, which occurs in the arctic or antarctic circle, during the days near the winter solstice.
