Jingle should be appearing on your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island today

Today is Christmas Eve which is why Isabelle was wearing a Santa Hat during her morning announcement briefing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Today sees the Toy Day event kick off bringing with it a new visitor on your island called Jingle the Reindeer. He is there looking for your help with a fun and simple quest. Be sure to greet him to get involved in the activity. Jingle the Reindeer is located by the Residential Building plaza.

    1. What the hell are you talking about. It’s clearly a reference to ‘Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer’ only Jingle has a black nose instead.

        1. Rudolph was invented in 1939, one-thousand and thirty-eight years after the supposed birth of Jesus. So it canโ€™t be THAT traditional..

          Only 1 percent of Japan is Christian. They assimilated some of western traditions but winter holidays, to them, is about spending time with family, and especially a time for couple, kind of like Valentines. They donโ€™t really exchange gifts except between couples. So Nintendo are actually doing a good job at being inclusive of other traditions.

          They are big on decorating with lights. But I donโ€™t think they decorate trees. Which are not traditionally Christian, they are pagan.

          I wish people who have a complaint about what is and is not in the game would stop and think WHY that may be so. Often times, they get all offended, like the whole ethnic hair issue. I agree there should be more representation of hair, but people donโ€™t have to get upset like NIntendo is being racist. They did not have that race experience in their history, and Iโ€™m sure they are open to being educated but not when people are being accusatory. Weโ€™re in a much more connected world, now, with the internet and all. We need to really think about all sides of a personal belief before accusing others of ill-intent. Because it is likely that our belief initially comes from a place of ethnocentricity.
