What is Shamrock Day (St. Patrick’s Day)?

Shamrock Day is Animal Crossing’s version of the Irish holiday - St. Patrick’s Day. The holiday has been celebrated across both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland for over 1,000 years and commemorates the Patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. 

We’ll have the ST. Patrick’s Day update & Shamrock Day event every single year in Animal Crossing and various items are added for Shamrock Day which are available to purchase. A shamrock is a type of plant that has clover-shaped leaves that are divided into three distinct parts. Shamrock Day ACNH items all have variations of this design.
