Following on from its announcement earlier this week, Nintendo has now officially released the winter update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

It adds Toy Day, Turkey Day and perhaps most importantly a new feature allowing users to transfer save data between different Nintendo Switch systems. There are a number of other additions as well and we've also got some fixes.

Below are the full patch notes, courtesy of Nintendo's support page:
