Animal Crossing New Horizons

Today marks yet another exciting occasion in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as a thick layer of snow is starting to cover people's islands for the first time – if you're in the northern hemisphere, at least.

Snow has been lightly trickling down on players' islands for a short while now, but today that snow has started to settle, beautifully decorating the ground, houses, fences, and more. New Horizons has always been pretty, but this new, chilly arrival is inspiring players to share new photographs of their humble abodes.

The snow has arrived as part of the game's big winter update – full details on that here if you missed it. If you haven't checked out your own island yet, take a look at these gorgeous snaps:
