Turkey Day has been an Animal Crossing institution since the series first debuted (back then it was called the Harvest Festival). That tradition has continued with Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch. The event has players helping visiting chef Franklin with creating dishes for the island’s residents, and in exchange, they can receive themed items. The whole thing is quite wholesome, and Franklin’s appearance in the game is always cause for celebration. For Animal Crossing fans, the event is the perfect way to unwind after dinner, and it’s also a great way for some players to escape real-life family encounters that might not be so pleasant. With the annual event officially in full swing, many players have taken to social media to share their in-game festivities.

The hats just make it more formal.
I love that Animal Crossing decided that everyone should wear a little hat on holidays pic.twitter.com/fzlgp4Nc4O

Franklin’s appearance in the first game was pretty dark…
It finally dawned on me why Animal Crossing Turkey Day is so seafood oriented

I’m sure the residents appreciated it, at least.
So I just spent a very frantic 20 mins looking for ingredients so this dude on my animal crossing island could cook his special food for Turkey Day. Success at 1053pm. I always do things last minute. pic.twitter.com/2hwWh1AWSf
