Mother's Day, like in real life, is an event for mothers. It is a holiday that appears in all of the Animal Crossing series games. Typically, the player will receive a letter with a present from their mother on this day.


In Animal Crossing

The player will receive a Lovely Phone from the player's mother.

In Wild World

The player receives a letter from the player's mother with a Pink Carnation. She will request to player to reply back, which is impossible in the game.

In City Folk

The player will receive pink carnations in a letter, similar to receiving a red carnation on Father's Day.

In New Leaf

The player receives a letter from the player's mother with a Pink Carnation, with a comment that the player's mother has kept all of the gifts the player is said to have given her over the years, or a similar comment to one made in City Folk, stating that the player's dad "actually helped [the mother] with the housework today. If only it could always be like this." It could be inferred that the player has given pink carnations to their mother before, and she is returning the favor. The player will get pink carnations from their mother and red carnations from their father to make white carnations.

In New Horizons

In New Horizons, for the entire month of May, Nook Shopping offers a unique seasonal item to celebrate Mother's Day: the Thank-you Mom mug, which costs 600 Bells. The catalog description of the mug reads:

Event: Mother's Day
Mother's Day is a day for saying "thank you" to that warm, loving person who always watches over you. What should go into a gift mug? How about all your love, for starters?
