The first two were added in the Version 2.0 Update released November 2021 if you haven’t played since then.

The more recent Bathtub With Yuzu item is sure to delight fans with a relaxing aromatic Japanese inspired bath in their winter homes, and the Aurora Wall is arguably one of the most beautiful wallpapers in Animal Crossing: Ne Horizons — make sure to get if you missed out before!

On the other side, players in the Southern Hemisphere celebrating the Summer Solstice can purchase four unique items right now: MaypoleSunflower SunglassesSunflower Crown, and Sunflower Rug. Again, the first two items were added in November 2021’s Version 2.0 Update.

All of these Animal Crossing: New Horizons seasonal items can be purchased in the Special Goods section of Nook Shopping from December 15th to 22nd, with the appropriate items available for your island’s hemisphere.

Here’s the official descriptions for the Winter Solstice shopping event items:

Midwinter Sweater: The winter solstice is the day with the least daylight all year. Put on this sweater to send chilly Old Man Winter running!

Aurora Wall: The winter solstice is the day with the least daylight all year. This wallpaper depicts that mystical shining light of clear winter skies, the aurora borealis. It’s so magical that you’ll forget how cold it is outside!

Bathtub With Yuzu: The winter solstice is the day with the least daylight all year. In Japan, one might take a bath with yuzu on this day to avoid catching a cold. Yuzu is an aromatic citrus fruit with a strong but relaxing scent.
