Yes, coinciding with America's Thanksgiving holiday each year, Turkey Day is a day of celebration in the Animal Crossing universe. Taking place today only (25th November), these celebrations include a special feast, a special character arrival, and some great rewards for players who take part.

The event runs from 6am to 10pm – you'll know it's happening thanks to the special Thanksgiving-themed music playing on your island and the sudden appearance of Franklin the Turkey at Resident Services. We've gathered everything you need to know about Turkey Day, including how to get your hands on all of its potential rewards, in the guide below. Check it out!

Will you be taking part in Turkey Day today? Oh, and for any of our American chums reading this, happy Thanksgiving!
