Easter Day (or Bunny Day) in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

4 years ago 14 Comments


It was Easter Day around the world recently and there’s an event in Animal Crossing: New Leaf to celebrate it! It was known as Bunny Day in City Folk and it may be called that again in the English versions of New Leaf. All of the details are below:

Just like in the real world, Easter doesn’t always occur on the same day and can vary every year. This year, it was March 31st, but in 2014 it will occur on April 20th! The event stars everyone’s favourite Zipper T. Bunny, although the dialogue in City Folk implies they are someone else under a suit. Who? Nobody knows!


This may come as a surprise to you but on Easter Day, you collect Easter Eggs! They’re hidden all around your town in unique ways.

  • Ground Egg – Buried in holes around your town, just dig them up with your shovel!
  • Tree Egg – Hidden in non-fruit trees around your town, just shake them!
  • Rock Egg – Inside rocks around your town, just break them with your shovel!
  • Flying Egg – Packaged in flying presents over your town, just shoot them down with your slingshot!
  • Fish Egg – Floating in the water looking like a fish, just fish them out with your fishing rod!
  • Diving Egg – Deep under the sea, just dive to them in the ocean with a diving suit!


The first thing you will want to do is collect one of each type of Easter Egg to give to Zipper T. Bunny. When you do that, he will give you an Easter Egg Basket furniture item. After that, just collect whichever eggs you want and eat them to reveal either a piece of candy (save it for Halloween), a Bunny Foil, or a Grand Prize Bunny Foil.

  • Candy – You can eat if you want right now but saving it for Halloween might be a wiser choice!
  • Bunny Foil – Trade this regular foil to Zipper T. Bunny and he will reward you with an Egg Series item!
  • Grand Prize Bunny Foil – Trade this grand prize foil to Zipper T. Bunny and he will reward you with a photo of himself!


That’s pretty much the holiday. After you collect all of the Egg Series, you may want to just keep hunting for candy to save for Halloween. Up to you really!

What do you think of the Egg Series and this holiday? Will you try to get the entire series? Let us know in the comments below. I like it, but it’s not my favourite series by any means.

    I do like this event. Even more so now there are new ways to find eggs and they are all different colours. It isn’t my favourite series but I do like it. Like in city folk ill probably just sell the furniture to get some bells but keep the picture 🙂

    This holiday is the best by far in my opinion. I love how many furniture sets you can have through all the different holidays. Can hardly wait to get my hands on this, just too bad we get it after most of the holidays are long gone….

  • Sinistrum

    Thank you for the information.

    The description of the holiday you gave us promises a lot of fun to me.
    I do like the idea to have eggs hidden in every possible way.
    The bunny itself, however, appears quite … creepy to me.
    I do not think that I will actually display the series in my house… But for sure I am eager to collect it to… well, the ones of you who do love Animal Crossing the way I do will understand, why ;).

    btw, the tan of the girl in the second photo is amazing.

  • Easter sounds fun (: but I wonder how Halloween is going to be like…

  • Zel

    I personally like to have at least a kitchen, bedroom, and living room in my character’s house, and I can’t help but think this furniture would make a really cute kitchen! Throw in a stove and a few other kitchen-y items and I’d be set, hehe.

  • This sounds awesome! I like the egg series and collecting it will be more fun than ever! I did always find Zipper T. Bunny kind of creepy though.

  • Mira

    why save candy for Halloween? Don’t you need to get lollipops?

    • Justin

      You’ll want Candy AND Lollipops, actually. 🙂

  • TheTabiEffect

    I got the entire series BUT a good tactic is to keep turning in the winning tickets! then sell the furniture!! I made a crap ton of bells. He just keeps giving you the same furniture anyways. You lose nothing. I had around 5 or 6 items and I made over 100,000 bells…I’m doing this now as we speak.

    I don’t a a diving suit I started on April 1 there shouldn’t be a diving one in case that happens.

  • Lizzy

    It a nice holiday, and I like how you can get zippers photo fast and easy.
