    Most of us remember the previous Animal Crossing experience with an item
    called a 'Diary' in the game. Unfortunately this little gem was left out in
    Animal Crossing: Wild World - thus making the in-game holidays and events an
    unknown day to look forward too.
    
    I had always felt quite lost when asking about certain holidays. The fact 
    that I live somewhere that is one day ahead of most players did not make things
    easier. As many didn't know what the event I was talking about, and by the 
    time they had experienced them - it was one day too late for me. Thus I decided
     to create a small guide to help provide some insight to others regarding the
    exciting events held within this game...
    
    The events/holidays are quite different than the previous Animal Crossing 
    game, that is: many of the real-life holidays are no longer available. Also, 
    events of the same nature may be found over different months - it's not a 
    mistake. It just gives everyone (new players, especially) a chance to 
    experience certain holidays without waiting an entire year. It also gives you 
    the chance to win competitions with different species through the four seasons.
    
    Anyway, enough rambling. I hope you find this Guide of some use - enjoy 
    Animal Crossing: Wild World!

    I have set up the guide as follows:
    
    When: The exact day/week the holiday/event starts - regardless of year.
    
    Starts: What time the holiday/event beings.
    
    Ends: What time it finishes.
    
    Mayor: Whether Tortimer is outside the town hall on the holiday/event.
    
    Gift: Whether you receive an item from the holiday/event.

    -*-  New Years Day
    =====================
    
    
    When: 1st of January
    Starts: All day
    Ends: Midnight
    Mayor: Yes
    Gift: Speak to Tortimer for a Fortune.
    
    Tortimer will be wandering around outside the town hall where you can
    receive a fortune from him. The fortune is random - so don't take the luck,
    love and health advice to heart :)
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - Speak to Tortimer multiple times for different fortunes.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    -*-  La-Di-Day
    =================
    
    
    When: 2nd Saturday in January
    Starts: 6am
    Ends: 6pm the next day
    Mayor: No
    Gift: None
    
    Today you can choose a new town tune by speaking to your villagers. If you
    like a tune they suggest, tell them their hired. The villagers will sing to
    you throughout the day, so don't feel compelled to choose just one song.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    -*-  Fishing Tournament
    ==========================
    
    
    When: 3rd Sunday in January
    Starts: 12pm
    Ends: 6pm
    Mayor: Yes
    Gift: Each time you beat your personal record, and if overall winner of the
    tourney.
    
    The tournament begins at 12pm though you can use any fish you have caught
    previously, in the competition. Take the fish you have to Tortimer to be
    measured - the largest fish (length-wise) will win. If you beat your
    personal record, you will receive an item of furniture. If you’re the overall
    winner, you will also receive the Fish Trophy - which is mailed to you. The
    winners name will be posted on the town bulletin board the next day.
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - If you do not have a Fishing Rod, simply talk to Tortimer and you
       will receive a free one.
    
     - Sea Bass are *usually* the easiest way to win the Tourney, however 
       if you don't want to take any chances: Tuna is a guaranteed win.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    -*- Yay Day
    ==============
    
    
    When: 4th Sunday in January
    Starts: 6am
    Ends: 6am the next day
    Mayor: No
    Gift: None
    
    
    Your villagers will expect you to compliment them today. The keyboard will
    be activated and you can enter an adjective to describe them. One-worded
    answers are understood better eg. Cute, Pretty, Awesome etc. You can change
    your compliment throughout the day by speaking to your villagers again.

    -*- Flea Market
    ==================
    
    
    When: 1st Saturday in February
    Starts: 6am
    Ends: 6am the next day
    Mayor: No
    Gift: None
    
    The flea market is a great day to go shopping! Visit your villager's homes
    to get a chance to buy some of their items. Villagers will also visit your
    home if you are at home, that is) to buy any items you have on display. Each 
    villager will only come over ONCE*** - so use this time wisely for haggling.
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - Put away any valuables you may have in your home the day BEFORE the 
       flea market to save time.
    
     - Villagers may pay approx. 3 times the sales price for items. This is 
       directly dependant on how good your relationship is with your villager. That
       is: Better relationship = Higher purchase price.
    
     - Normally, villagers will only buy 3 items. However, if your house has 
       been upgraded to at least stage 3, simply keep moving to another room and 
       back again. Your villager will continue the shopping spree.
    
     - Villagers who are sick or moving will not participate in the Flea Market.
    
    
    *** Villagers will visit your home for each character created. That is, one 
    character = one visit per villager. Using 2 characters = two visits etc.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    -*- Bright Nights
    ====================
    
    
    When: Second week of February
    Starts: 6am Monday
    Ends: Voting ends Saturday, winner announced Sunday.
    Mayor: Yes
    Gift: None
    
    Enjoy the bright nights of this week by judging the villager's home that is 
    decorated the best. Speak to Tortimer to vote for a winner throughout the week.
    At the end, find the villager who won and tell them. They will thank you in 
    return for the good news.
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - You can not decorate your home with lights - you are the judge in this 
       competition.
       
     - This is a week long event, thus no special visitors will be arriving in your
       town EXCEPT for K.K. Slider, whom can be found in his usual place on 
       Saturday night.

    The flea market is a great day to go shopping! Visit your villager's homes
    to get a chance to buy some of their items. Villagers will also visit your
    home if you are at home, that is) to buy any items you have on display. Each 
    villager will only come over ONCE*** - so use this time wisely for haggling.
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - Put away any valuables you may have in your home the day BEFORE the 
       flea market to save time.
    
     - Villagers may pay approx. 3 times the sales price for items. This is 
       directly dependant on how good your relationship is with your villager. That
       is: Better relationship = Higher purchase price.
    
     - Normally, villagers will only buy 3 items. However, if your house has 
       been upgraded to at least stage 3, simply keep moving to another room and 
       back again. Your villager will continue the shopping spree.
    
     - Villagers who are sick or moving will not participate in the Flea Market.
    
    
    *** Villagers will visit your home for each character created. That is, one 
    character = one visit per villager. Using 2 characters = two visits etc.

    When: Second week of October
    Starts: 6am Monday
    Ends: Sunday
    Mayor: Yes
    Gift: Pieces of the Mush furniture set & fortune.
    
    The Acorn Festival is the only time you can score pieces to the rare Mush 
    furniture set. Gather acorns each day beneath non-fruit bearing trees and 
    give them to Cornimer. He will add it to your cumulative total each day. At the
     increments of: 5, 10, 25, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 170, 200 and 230 he will 
    give you a piece of the Mush set.
    
    If you give Cornimer more than one load of acorns in one day, he will also give
     you a fortune - this is the only opportunity you get to add Tortimer Paper to 
    your catalog.
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - Make sure you DO NOT have any Rotten acorns in your inventory when talking 
       to Cornimer. He will take them and any other acorns you are holding, but 
       will NOT add any them to your total count!
    
     - Acorns can only be found under Non-fruit bearing trees - Cedar trees do NOT 
       count. Acorns are randomly generated though, so not all trees will have 
       them.
    
     - Clear away any weeds/flowers/items you may have under your trees, as acorns 
       will only appear if the ground beneath the tree is clear. (Basically, the 
       acorns will appear in the same place as if you were shaking a fruit tree). 
       
     - Sell/recycle any rotten acorns that are lying around, as they will prevent 
       new acorns from generating in that spot.
    
     - This is a week long event, thus no special visitors will be arriving in your
       town EXCEPT for K.K. Slider and Crazy Redd, whom will appear on their 
       designated days.

    Today you can choose a new town tune by speaking to your villagers. If you
    like a tune they suggest, tell them their hired. The villagers will sing to
    you throughout the day, so don't feel compelled to choose just one song.

    Your villagers will expect you to compliment them today. The keyboard will
    be activated and you can enter an adjective to describe them. One-worded
    answers are understood better eg. Cute, Pretty, Awesome etc. You can change
    your compliment throughout the day by speaking to your villagers again.

    -*- Flea Market
    ==================
    
    
    When: 1st Saturday in December
    Starts: 6am
    Ends: 6am the next day
    Mayor: No
    Gift: None
    
    The flea market is a great day to go shopping! Visit your villager's homes
    to get a chance to buy some of their items. Villagers will also visit your
    home if you are at home, that is) to buy any items you have on display. Each 
    villager will only come over ONCE*** - so use this time wisely for haggling.
    
    
     Tips
     ------
    
     - Put away any valuables you may have in your home the day BEFORE the 
       flea market to save time.
    
     - Villagers may pay approx. 3 times the sales price for items. This is 
       directly dependant on how good your relationship is with your villager. That
       is: Better relationship = Higher purchase price.
    
     - Normally, villagers will only buy 3 items. However, if your house has 
       been upgraded to at least stage 3, simply keep moving to another room and 
       back again. Your villager will continue the shopping spree.
    
     - Villagers who are sick or moving will not participate in the Flea Market.
    
    
    *** Villagers will visit your home for each character created. That is, one 
    character = one visit per villager. Using 2 characters = two visits etc.

    * Fishing Tourney Tip:
    
     Submitted by Goldenfan
     ---------------------
     Status = Not confirmed.
    
    
    If you open your town gates during the Tourney, it will stop your villagers 
    from participating. Thus you can win with any size fish.
    
    
    
    
    * Fishing Tourney Tip:
     ---------------------
     Status = Not confirmed.
    
    
    If you are the current record holder, speak to Tortimer and
    don't finish the conversation. Just leave the game alone until tourney is
    over. This ensures no one will get a larger fish than you.

    Q: What does it matter if the Mayor is present or not?
    
    A: Should you be aiming for the illusive Golden Axe, you need to speak to
       Tortimer at some point. Thus the only times you can do that is on certain
       events. This information was especially frustrating to find when I was
       trying to obtain the axe - so I've added it in :)
    
    
    
    Q: Your guide said something, then you changed it!? You lied!
    
    A: When I receive new information or something that contradicts what is 
       already stated - I update this guide so you may benefit from it. After all, 
       would you prefer information that isn't correct - or know the truth? Go with
       the flow, accept the changes and move on :)
    
    
    
    Q: Something is incorrect...?
    
    A: We all make mistakes :) Feel free to email me the correction and I'll
       check it out.
    
    
    
    Q: I've got some information that you haven't added...?
    
    A: Send it to me. I hope to keep improving this guide, so every bit of
       information counts. If it is helpful and relevant, I'll throw it in (with
       credit for you, of course).
    
    
    
    Q: How can I contact you?
    
    A: Email will be fine: el_pollodiablo@REMOVETHIShotmail.com. (Please don't 
    forget to remove the 'REMOVETHIS' before emailing and make sure your subject 
    heading says Animal Crossing Event guide or something along that line...)
