Naughty or Nice Day is an event held on the first Saturday of December or the Friday. It is first introduced in City Folk. It is mainly a quiet day, with most villagers in their homes. Unless the player visits the plaza in front of the town hall they will not be informed that it is Naughty or Nice Day. A day before a message will be posted on the Bulletin Board. Tortimer will stand outside the Town Hall and when the player approaches him he will inquire whether they have been naughty or nice. Regardless of what the player says, he will give them a stuffed stocking, which, like all other holiday related items, cannot be bought from the catalog.
The event returns in the European version of Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
