Animal Crossing New Horizons has been out for the Nintendo Switch for more than half a year now, and Nintendo is still going strong with consistent free updates for the game. The new winter update is out now, and players can start to look forward to new events to celebrate on their island. Here’s how to start Turkey Day in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Starting Turkey Day in Animal Crossing New Horizons
First off, if you were planning on time traveling to get to the event, we have some bad news for you. It looks like Nintendo has time-locked Turkey Day, which means that even if you try to fast forward your system date and clock to the correct day, nothing will happen on your island.
Instead, you’ll need to wait patiently for the actual day itself. Turkey Day is set to start on the fourth Thursday of November, so for 2020, the event will become available to all players on Nov. 26th. Presumably, there will be another quick update for the game, which will then allow you to access the event and all its festivities.
This is a change from the recently released Halloween event, which wasn’t time-locked at all and was available to all time traveling players who had installed the update. That being said, even with the winter update, you’ll still be able to time travel backwards to past events if you missed them. While Turkey Day is locked for now, it seems you don’t have to worry about past events being time-locked as well.
Once the event is live, you’ll be able to start collecting new furniture items and DIYs to decorate your island for the event accordingly.
