Love it or hate it, Bunny Day has come again Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The Nintendo game’s annual egg-themed party coincides with Easter and features the somewhat eerie but lovable Zipper T. Bunny mascot. Here’s a complete guide to the 2022 Bunny Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizonsincluding when to expect Zipper on your island and what to do when he arrives.
‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Bunny Day date and start time – how long does Bunny Day last?
The date of the Bunny Day event changes every year based on the date of Easter in real life. In 2022, the event falls on Sunday, April 17, which Animal Crossing Twitter revealed (below). When the day begins at 5 in the morning, Zipper starts jumping around your island to hand out rewards for egg hunting.
Although Bunny Day is technically April 17, the event really begins a week before, April 10. Zipper will visit your island to hide more eggs – you should see some on the pink non-fruit trees. When you talk to him, he will explain that he has hidden six different types of eggs around the island. In the next week, you can collect as many eggs as possible and make all the Bunny Day recipes in preparation for Zipper’s return the following Sunday. He was to continue until the new day begins on Monday, April 18th.
What’s happening on Bunny Day in ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’?
On Zipper’s second visit to your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, he has four Bunny Day 2022 items / recipes to share. When you first talk to him on April 17, he will give you the Bunny Day arch recipe – make this one to work towards another mission for Zipper. Then you can give him one of each egg type to receive the Bunny Day Basket. If you do not have enough eggs from the week leading up to the event, you can still pick them up on Bunny Day.
The island may seem flooded with eggs all week, but every egg counts, so keep collecting them! You will need dozens of each type of egg to make 40 Bunny Day recipes that include furniture, floors, wallpaper, fences and clothing.
Once you have made all the recipes (clothes can be excluded), talk to Zipper again on April 17 to receive the recipe for the Wobbling Zipper Toy. Finally, you need to make that Wobbling Zipper Toy to receive the Bunny Day Wand recipe from Zipper.
In addition to collecting rewards from Zipper, you can grab some unprocessable Bunny Day items from Nook’s Cranny throughout the week. These include Bunny Day Garden Flag, Bunny Day Plants Box, Bunny Day Candy, Bunny Day Topiary and Bunny Day Tree.
How to Get Bunny Day Recipes in ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’
So you can receive four items with a zipper on Bunny Day, but what about all the other recipes? Like collecting eggs, you will need to collect recipes during the week leading up to Bunny Day.
There are quite a few places to find Crossing animals recipes. To begin with, you will see striped balloons soar in the sky and striped bottles flush up the shore. Both of these contain Bunny Day recipes! Additionally, some villagers will give you Bunny Day recipes if they see you around the island. Finally, you can automatically receive outfit recipes by collecting several of the same egg type.
