In case it had slipped your mind, here's a friendly reminder that today is the wonderful, magical time of year known as Toy Day in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

If you're not the sort who jumps into the game every single day regardless, you might want to make an exception today to see all of the festive fun taking place on your island. The festivities kick off at 5am on 24th December and last for one full day – you'll know the event is live because special music will be playing on your island.

The first thing you'll want to do is find Jingle, the black-nosed reindeer; he'll ask you to deliver presents to other islanders and help to get you in the festive spirit. We've got a work-in-progress guide to the event right here if you need any help, with details on where to find Jingle and all the other activities you can get stuck into throughout the day.
