Yet another brand new special seasonal item is now available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons today to celebrate a fun holiday!
Primarily celebrated in Japan on November 15th, the real-world Shichi-Go-San holiday commemorates children aged three, five, and seven years as they sometimes put on formal wear and visit a shrine.
In addition, a special long, thin, red, and white candy called Chitose Ame — known as one thousand year candy — is often given out to children to honour the holiday.
To celebrate the Shichi-Go-San holiday in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, a brand new seasonal item called the Chitose Ame is now available to collect as part of the in-game Shichi-Go-San seasonal shopping event!
Players can pick up the Chitose Ame item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons from the Special Goods section of Nook Shopping for 1,000 Bells each from November 11th to 20th.
Here’s the official description from Nintendo for the Shichi-Go-San shopping event:
Mainly celebrated in Japan, this holiday honors children ages three, five, and seven. Long candy sticks called chitose ame are given to the children, along with the hope that they all live long lives.
Don’t forget to pick up the special Handheld Lantern item as well from Nook Shopping for the Lantern Festival as it’s set to leave the shop after today!
