Since Valentine’s Day isn’t a holiday in the Animal Crossing world that requires much player participation, I decided to combine the events into one blog post. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on February 14th (of course!) in all Animal Crossing games with the exception of Animal Crossing: Wild World.
First up is Doubutsu no Mori. Now, in Japan things are a little bit different. Barentein de (Valentine’s Day) is actually a holiday geared towards guys! On this special day, girls will send letters or gifts to the boys in their lives. So, if you are a male, you will receive a letter with a present from your female villagers. Since I am a girl, I didn’t get anything. That doesn’t mean that girls are left out, though- March 14th is Howaito de, and THAT is when girls receive their presents. Anyway, I snapped a picture of the bulletin board announcement for Barentein de:
Next up is Animal Crossing. Here is the announcement on the bulletin board:
And obviously I did not heed Pete’s advice, because my mailbox was full! That means that I didn’t get any Valentine’s! 😦 I was kind of bummed about that. I even saved and played later, after mail would be delivered again- but I got nothing. Boo. I did, however, get a letter from the museum. Apparently I tried to send away my golden rod:
What the hell was I thinking! I must’ve been asleep when I mailed that away! Good thing I didn’t accidentally send it to one of my villagers. Moving on…
In City Folk, Prince was my Valentine. He sent me a letter as well as a chocolate heart.
Here I am with my Valentine!
Lastly, in New Leaf, I got letters from Isabelle and my mom.
Isabelle sent me a chocolate cake, while my mom sent me a spring shirt. Here I am pondering whether or not to eat the cake while wearing my new shirt:
Also, please note that if you go to drink coffee from Brewster in either City Folk or New Leaf, it will actually be hot chocolate instead of coffee! This is a special Valentine’s Day treat.
That’s it for Valentine’s Day in all of the Animal Crossing games! Finally, I am all caught up blogging about February’s holidays. I didn’t mean to get so far behind! The only events left in February are a Fishing Tourney and a Flea Market, which I have blogged about before. See ya!
