No Holiday Spirit

Today is Christmas Eve in the real world, but not in Wild World. Sadly, ACWW is different from other Animal Crossing games in that respect. But I did receive a letter from “Mom” in the mail today, and she mentioned that the holidays were here. She enclosed a red boom box to the letter. I guess that’s my present. 😛

Dear Jeff, It smells like snow and hot chocolate! It's that time of year again! The holidays! Bundle up out there! -MomIt was snowing in town tonight, and Kiki commented on how the world seems quieter when it’s snowing.

Kiki: All the daily hustle and bustle seems quieter when it's snowing out.Static seems to be the town grinch. Apparently just saying hello to him makes him angry. Lighten up, man.

Static: Oh, hello! You tryin' to make me mad? 'Cause you're succeeding!Poor Pudge was still sick. Being sick is never fun, but being sick during the holidays is the worst. I bought some medicine for him; I hope he starts feeling better soon.

Pudge does a backflip as he takes some cold medicine.If there’s one thing Wild World does right, it’s giving backstory on some of the special characters. Even though Sable’s interesting dialogue has now been reduced to commenting on the day of the week, I’m now continuing to hear more about Blathers.

He told me that his attempt to get over his fear of bugs is failing; he even fainted after looking at his bug book. He’s really struggling with this, and I kind of feel sad for the guy. The other Animal Crossing games never made me feel anything about Blathers other than annoyance that he talks so much.

Blathers: The next thing I know, my sister was waking me up! Yes. Hoo. I'd fainted...After having him identify two fossils, I went downstairs to the Roost. K.K. performed Surfin’ K.K. for me. I actually enjoyed the song more than I expected.

K.K.: All right, get ready to dig the riffs on this ditty: Surfin' K.K.!Remember how I said Static was the town grinch? Well, Bill is even worse than a grinch. Since it’s Christmas Eve, I’ll try to say it as nicely as I can: He’s a jerk. He decided to give me a new nickname: Dumbbell! I wanted to grab a NES Zapper and go Duck Hunting.

Bill: OK, then from this moment on, you're dumbbell!For the first time , I failed to find the money rock today. I guess I could have spent more time looking for it, but I had a lot to do with it being Christmas Eve. Speaking of which, I hope you all have a great Christmas and holiday season! I’ll see you all next time!
