Groundhog Day, also known as Mole Day, is an event in the Animal Crossing series. This holiday was left out of Animal Crossing: Wild World. However, it returns in Animal Crossing: City Folk and all games since.


In Animal Crossing

Like the real holiday, the entire village will gather to see if the local mole will predict winter, else the long awaited spring. At 7:00 AM, villagers will congregate around the Wishing Well. You can chat with the villagers while waiting until 8:00 AM, when Mr. Resetti makes a cameo appearance as "the mole." If you talk to Tortimer after the ceremony (which finishes at 9:00am), he will give you one of many flower models in honor of the occasion.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk

During Mole Day in Animal Crossing: City Folk, Tortimer will be standing in front of the Town Hall If the Player speaks to him, he will give the Player a model of Mr. Resetti.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The event makes an appearance in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as well. Isabelle, the Mayor's secretary, can be found at the Plaza for the Player to talk to. Once doing so, Isabelle will hand the Player a Resetti Model, the same item the Player receives in City Folk. The only thing that differs from the previous game such as there being a billboard that one Player can stick their face into, a hole for a Player to make faces with Mr. Resetti by their side.

Dialogue in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

During Groundhog Day, the following dialogue is spoken by Isabelle:

  • "Oh, Mayor! Today's the day we try to guess when spring will arrive, It's "Groundhog Day!"
  • "That's why I've prepared a special little something to really celebrate "Groundhog Day!"
  • "It's a Resetti model! Please take it in celebration of our town's Groundhog Day!"
