Updated details on Grass Day in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

A few months back before the game released, we reported on a new holiday in Animal Crossing: New Leaf called Grass Day. Turns out we got it pretty wrong (oops) so we’re back today with updated details on the holiday! Read all about it below:

Grass Day occurs on September 3rd at 6:00am when Reji/Lazy (the Garden Shop owner) visits your village to bring your town together for some good old fashioned weed picking! And by the town, we mean you. (when do the villagers actually help you?)

Speak with Reji/Lazy and he’ll tell you how many weeds (no clovers!) he wants picked. Complete the tasks to receive a piece of the Flower Set furniture. Four pieces of the set can be gained from picking weeds in your own town. (the A section in the picture below)

flowerfurniture

But wait, there are 12 pieces of furniture! Now what? You need to visit other towns on Grass Day. Every 30 weeds picked in another town will earn you a random piece of the B section of Flower Set furniture.

Two final notes: The event ends at 7:00pm and it requires a built Garden Shop to occur.

Special thanks to Zen for helping out with this post!

How cool! It’ll be a difficult task to get the entire furniture set but I love it when they add a new Holiday/Event in Animal Crossing!!! I can’t wait to play this game! I’m hoping there’s a release date announced within the next decade haha!!! 🙂

I thought the holiday was called weed day,not grass day. my friends keep say the garden store owner is named reggie in english not lazy. (maybe his name is reggie witha lazy personality)

I don’t know if there are any official translations out so (unless I’m wrong) there’s no way to know how they’ll actually translate it, but “Reiji” is how you would pronounce the word “lazy” using the Japanese alphabet; it’s also (as you can tell) pretty similar to the name Reggie, so it could be possible for Nintendo to use that name as well.

That’s so not fair! I’m never gonna be able to get the whole set due to the fact none of my friends have a 3ds or have even heard of AC. I can’t even get wifi so no travelling to other towns that way for me either! 🙁

It sounds pretty awesome and there’s plenty to take my mind off of the things i’ll miss out on. I’m just glad I can travel to the island alone ^^,
I’m really looking forward to the game! Just slightly disappointed that there’s alot of great stuff i’ll miss out on due to spot pass etc.

I know the name of the sloth is old news, but isn’t it more than likely that it would be translated as ‘reggie’ than ‘lazy’.

Actually, I think the sloth’s name is Renji or Lazy (I am not sure if Renji means lazy though). So if you think about it the name might be Reggie in the US (though since the sloth is lazy I don’t think President Reggie would allow for that.

That was last years date. you posted 2012 as the year,while it is 2013 now.

which makes me think you got a fake date or an old letter nintedo forgot to edit.

acnlfan

april and may well be possable,only if nintendo have diffcult time and unexspected delay due to weather and health. so as long as thing goes smooth the date for release is jan-may.

official info nintendo said was first half no later than spring.for europe,north america,and uk.

Grass Day sounds interesting but has this been confirmed by Nintendo?
If it has than I better plan to let weeds grow a few days before hand to be sure I have enough in my town for pulling.
