Fireworks Festival Fun

Every Sunday in August, there is a Fireworks show in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and seeing as how this is my first Animal Crossing game, the first show was quite a treat.

Another interesting addition in New Leaf is custom fireworks that use your designs to make big spherical explosions, and once I realized that, I knew I had to make some special designs that were interspersed amongst the other fireworks. I took screenshots of the wonderful time I had and thought I might share them with all of you.

Here is the special fireworks festival music to get you in a delightful mood for the pictures:

Tonight and each Sunday at 7PM in August, you can enjoy a fireworks show in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as I have. This game is charming in every way, and as a game which encourages a simple peace and joy with the player, I'd say it is exceptional. Despite usually preferring more intense and tactical games with crisis and competition, I am thankful for getting to occasionally enjoy games like this.

Now, as the night winds down...

Rest in peace, Ryan.

Yeah, it has been a lot of fun. I've especially enjoyed messing around with custom designs. It's just a nice change of pace from the rest of the week.

Man, I missed this for the second week in a row. I just set a reminder on my phone for next Sunday. Looks neat!

@truthtellah: I don't know, when I think of fireworks music I think of this.

@andrew2696: haha. I like that music, too. I wish I could take some video of the fireworks and set it to that music.

@pyromagnestir Thanks, Pyro-chan!

@truthtellah: Any more fireworks to share? They make my cold, dead heart feel something I'm unfamiliar with. I think the words one might use to describe these new feelings would be "warm" and "happy".
