When does Bunny Day end in “Animal Crossing: New Horizons”?
I’m pretty sure the fix made a difference. I’m able to fish now, at least, with little certainty that I’ll pluck an egg instead of a fish every time. But rest assured, the island is still absolutely covered in eggs here in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the rabbit day celebrations, and I’m still waiting for things to end.
First, a semantic distinction: technically it’s not Bunny Day, not yet. It’s the momentum to Bunny Day, which only has one day left. That’s when it all ends: Bunny Day itself is the same day as Easter, by a strange coincidence, April 12.
That’s when Bunny Day ends Animal Crossing: New Horizons. April 12th will see a glut of eggs for anyone still trying to make all those sickly egg recipes, and then it’s all over and I can start trying to fill my museum again. I had my Snapping Turtle last night so it’s not a total loss. I’m also now on the hunt for cherry blossom recipes, as I haven’t seen a single one other than the one Isabelle gave me on the first morning of April.
I’ll be very curious to see what happens with the next event after this one. Nintendo obviously heard some criticism or else it wouldn’t have made the fix that lowered egg rates. I imagine we’ll see a bit more attention in the next event to its ubiquity and the extent to which players can choose to go about their day-to-day business without being inundated with seasonal specials.
Independently, Animal Crossing: New Horizons remains a pleasant little escape from the brutal realities of life in confinement. Right now I’m firmly in the middle of the game, it feels like, where I’m looking for new furniture recipes and trying to execute a particular vision for the island rather than just scattering around what’s available. To be honest, it’s not going very well, but we’ll talk about that later. I mostly just want furniture.
