Snow Festival

Konohana Town
Winter 10
- 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm

screen shot

On this day the villagers gather to view a snow sculpture. Depending on who is in charge of the construction, you will see three different ones; Sheng builds a panda (year 1), Mako builds a Turnip (year 2), and Kana builds a winged horse (of course) in year 3. After that it will rotate back to Sheng's sculpture.

For participating in the festival you'll earn +500 FP with each villager except for Raul and the snow statue makers who aren't there. For example, in year 1 you won't get +500 FP with Mako and Kana because Sheng is in charge of the snow statue.

Since the festival is for celebrating snow, the weather needs to be snowy on this day. If you are wearing the Wild Outfit (boy) or Cute Outfit (girl) that force sunny weather when you go to bed on the 9th, the festival might not be available.

Winter Harmony Day

Bluebell Town
Winter 14
- All day

Depending on your gender, this event will play out differently.

If you are playing as a girl:

This is the day you will give chocolate treats to the bachelors who live in Bluebell Town. You will earn +1000 FP if you give a chocolate dessert to Ash, Cam, and Mikhail if he is living in Bluebell Town. If Mikhail is living in Konohana Town, he does not participate in the Bluebell festival.

Acceptable gifts include Chocolate Cookies, Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Pudding, and even Chocolate Donuts. Any dessert recipe with the word "chocolate" (choc., choco., etc.) can be given as a harmony day gift.

In your first year (and every 8th year afterward), the festival occurs on a Monday. Cam isn't in town on Mondays so you will not be able to give him a gift.

If you are playing as a boy:

You will receive visitors at your farmhouse door. Walk into your house and the person will follow behind you. Laney will appear if you walk into your house between 6:00 am and 12:00 pm, Georgia will be between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm, and Alisa (if she is unlocked) from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. You will receive +1000 FP with each girl who visits your house.

The gift you give will depend on the flower level of the bachelorette:

  • 1 flower (white): Chocolate Pudding
  • 2 flowers (purple): Chocolate Banana
  • 3 flowers (blue): Chocolate Cookies
  • 4 flowers (green): Chocolate Cake
  • 5 flowers (yellow): Chocolate Donuts
  • 6 or 7 flower (pink or red): Choc. Party Cake

Starry Night Festival

Bluebell Town
Winter 23 and 24
- 8:00 pm to 12:00 pm

This festival is in two parts. On the 23rd, talk to Ash or Cam if you are playing as a girl, or Georgia or Laney if you are playing as a boy. The girl or boy must have 3 Flowers (blue) or more. If you meet the friendship requirement, the person will ask you to accompany him or her to a starry night dinner party.

Mikhail does not participate in Starry Night, even if he is living in Bluebell Town at the time the festival occurs. Cam cannot participate in Starry Night if the 23rd falls on a Monday, since he is unavailable the entire day.

On the 24th between 8:00 pm and midnight, go to the assigned dining location to start the festival:

  • Ash or Georgia: Meet at the Bluebell Town Hall. The other dinner participants are Cheryl, Jessica, Grady, Rose, and Rudger.
  • Cam or Laney: Meet at Howard's cafe. The other dinner participants are Eilene and Howard

You will receive +1000 FP with the girl or boy who invited you to the festival, and +500 FP with the other dinner party members. After the party, you will return to your house and prompted to save before going to bed.

If You Are Married

Instead of going out to dinner, you and your spouse will stay home. Your spouse must have 5 Flowers (yellow) or higher. Enter your house after 8:00 pm to get a dinner party with your spouse (and child if he/she exists). You will earn +1000 FP with your family.
