Today is the one-year anniversary of the day I began living the island life on Gloriana in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
It’s been a fun year, and a nice way to escape reality, which, let’s face it, was a necessity over the last 12 months! Let’s take a look back, shall we?
One of the first events was “Bunny Day,” where my old friend, Zipper T. Bunny stopped by:
Cherry blossom season was a lot of fun, but I didn’t collect nearly enough recipes, so I hope we get to do it again this year!
Reese and Cyrus arrived at Harv’s Island for a special wedding-themed event:
My neighbors made my birthday a special day:
And a few days later, my very favorite neighbor, Roald, moved in!
Swimming and diving for deep sea creatures was added over the summer:
The day I received my perfect island rating was A Big Deal:
It wouldn’t have been summer without a fireworks show:
Jack, the Czar of Halloween, hosted a special event in October:
There were moments when island life imitated real life a little too well:
My favorite turkey, Franklin, made a special meal for Turkey Day:
After a few failures, I finally built a perfect snowboy…and then enough others to complete the furniture collection:
And Jingle the black-nosed reindeer let me help him hand out gifts for Toy Day:
I think we were all happy to say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021 on New Year’s!
I had fun celebrating all of my neighbors’ birthdays throughout the course of the year, but none more so than Roald!
Pavé brought his amazing dance moves to my island for Festivale:
Mario Day was extra fun with special themed items:
Even Pi Day made an appearance in my game!
And just a few days ago, I celebrated Shamrock Day, island style!
It’s been a fun year on my island, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings…I’m hoping for more familiar characters such as Brewster, Pete, and Kapp’n, and maybe some new events I haven’t even thought of!
