Cherry Blossoms in Animal Crossing

When a family member started playing Animal Crossing™: City Folk on her WII today, which is April 1, i.e. April Fools Day in the U.S., she found a lot of trees she had recently planted were now red. She thought the trees had died. But the red leaves on some trees that appear in the game from April 1 through April 7 represent cherry blossoms.

Each year in Japan and the U.S., as well as some other countries, there are Cherry Blossom Festivals held when the cherry blossoms appear.

Japan gave the U.S. 3,020 sakura trees, aka cherry trees, to the U.S. in 1912 as a gesture of friendship. Those trees were planted in Sakura Park in Manhattan and along the Tidal Basin in Washington, D.C. Japan sent another 3,800 trees to the U.S. in 1965. The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. has been a popular tourist attraction in the early spring for many years.

Also on April 1, you can get a special gift, if you speak to Tortimer, the tortoise-like character. If you talk to him on other special days, you can get other items from him.

To get the following of Tortimer's goods, speak to him on the corresponding day noted below.
