Another two new seasonal items celebrating a pair of upcoming Asian holidays during June are now available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons today for your collection!
These holidays are the Dragon Boat Festival most commonly celebrated in China for the famous scholar Qu Yuan, and the Dano Festival from South Korea where women often wash their hair in boiled water with Sweet Flag. Both are governed by the lunar calendar.
For both holidays in 2021, a pair of brand new yummy food items have been introduced called the Festival Zongzi for Dragon Boat Festival and the Surichwi Tteok for Dano Festival.
Players can pick up both of these items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons from the Special Goods section of Nook Shopping for 1,000 Bells each from June 5th to 14th, 2021.
Here’s the official description from Nintendo for the Dragon Boat Festival shopping event:
Celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month of the year according to the lunar calendar in parts of East Asia, this holiday is meant to ward off disease. Steamed sticky-rice dumplings are typically served.
And the second official description for the Dano Festival shopping event:
Celebrated on the fifth day of the fifth month of the year according to the lunar calendar, in South Korea this holiday is for praying for a bountiful harvest and warding off bad luck.
These items are sticking around for a relatively short seasonal period compared to most events, so don’t miss out on catching some new food items while you can!
While you’re here, don’t forget to grab the rather large collection of other seasonal items currently found in Nook Shopping right now. This include limited-time items for Wedding Season, Father’s Day, and International Children’s Day.
