New Years Day is a day where from the 31st Dec to 1st of Jan Isabelle will stand in the plaza until 12am. If you talk to her she will give you an item which is a Zodiac Chinese Year Animal. You can also buy it from the Retail Shop and The Nook Shop. They can be displayed in your home and when you touch some of them, they do something. When you join the game, your Mum will send a present and letter saying happy new year to your mail box. Inside the present is 1000 bells. When you don’t play on New Years, you won’t get a letter at all. Redd will give you a hat. They come in some colours, which are yellow, blue, red, and green. Talking to Isabelle again, she will give you another item depending on the place that you live in. If you live in North America, you will get a sparkling cider.
Birthdays include: Marcel the dog, Tortimer the tortoise and Bob the cat.
