Hoppity ho! Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ first holiday event is here! Bunny Day 2020 is turning more into Bunny Nearly Two Weeks Celebration, but you’ll need the entire duration to earn the holiday’s complete furniture set. The entire event runs from April 1st, 2020 to April 12th, 2020, but the actual day — Bunny Day — will be on April 12th.

It’s true that the event went live on April 1st at 12:01 a.m., Zipper won’t appear until 5 a.m. Signaling the start of a new day, the morning’s announcements will touch on the upcoming holiday.

 

Bunny Day host Zipper T. Bunny

 

 

After exiting your home, Zipper will be roaming around town. Find him and he’ll tell you all about Bunny Day. This version of the long-running Animal Crossing event is using New Horizons’ crafting system, so Zipper will be kind enough to get you started by giving you a Bunny Day recipe. Zipper will also explain what items you’ll need to collect to craft the Bunny Day line of recipes, and those are eggs. 

 

How to collect eggs

 

 

Welcome to a big crafting egg hunt. The Bunny Day event features six kinds of eggs that players can find by different means. The only stipulation is that you won’t find them inside; this is an outdoor-only event. Here’s how to get all the eggs:

 

  • Earth Egg: Grab a shovel and dig where “X” marks the spot.
  • Stone Egg: Hit a rock and they might just pop out alongside clay, iron, stone, and golden nuggets.
  • Leaf Egg: These come in a trio, as they grow on trees!
  • Wood Egg: It’s chopping time. Take any kind of axe to a tree and they’ll pop out alongside wood, hardwood, and softwood. Using a regular “Axe” will cut the tree down after three strikes, so watch out!
  • Sky Egg: Grab your slingshot and start looking for colorful striped balloons floating through the sky. Is it a recipe or an egg? You’ll find out once you pop the balloon.
  • Water Egg: These eggs can only be found in bodies of water, so whip out your fishing rod and hope for the best. Is it a Sea Bass or an egg (please be an egg)?

Looking for more crafting resources? With a Nook Miles Ticket and a booking with Dodo Airlines, you have the chance to find the following eggs on an island far, far away: earth, stone, leaf, wood, and water. 

 

How to find more Bunny Day recipes

 

You’re only given one recipe from Zipper to start with. More have been hidden and you can find them via the following ways:

 

  • Bunny Day Balloons: Look for the colorful striped balloons flying by. Instead of Sky Egg falling, a standard present will. Open it up and you’ll find a recipe inside! 
  • Bunny Day Message Bottles: Washed ashore, the standard message bottles will have a colorful striped pattern to them. Crack it open and you’ll find a letter and recipe from Zipper inside.
  • A Bolt of Inspiration: Collect enough eggs and your villager might get an “Ah-ha!” moment. An eggs-over-easy way of getting some new recipes.
  • Gifts from Neighbors: One of your villagers may suddenly call out your name and have an exclamation mark (!) appear above their head. Go talk to them and you might receive a recipe from them!

 

Note: Yes, you can get duplicates of recipes. That just means it is time to share/trade with friends!

    There’s a wardrode that requires 4 stone eggs and a stool that requires 3 water eggs, IIRC.
