Welp, now I feel bad I left my Animal Crossing: New Leaf town to squalor. I assume banditry is on the rise, everyone locks their doors, and floor is filthy with weeds. At least Shrunk's club is booming for the black market scene after the Nooklings' expected authoritarian stand and rationing.
If you already have New Leaf, you can animal cross it off your Christmas list and enjoy some holiday themed cheer this December. I barely stuck with New Leaf long enough to experience any holidays. Maybe my heart has shrunk three sizes since the days of the original.
Make sure to give your hated neighbors terrible presents. If you could gift tools you could give an ax and say, "Merry aXmas."
