Yay! The annual Christmas update for Happy Street came out last Friday night! And it includes ice-skating, hot-chocolate-sipping PENGUINS! I guess the news about my awesome street traveled all the way to the South Pole. 🙂
It’s all so adorable. The Penguins live in an igloo and they brought three new businesses–a Winter Sports Shop, a Hot-Hot Chocolate Shop, and an Ice Rink. There’s also a little Snowballs HQ decoration that generates a snowy mountain backdrop complete with a seal sculpture and a swath of glowy Northern Lights. There’s a cute Heading North signpost and cool blue Ice Sheet flooring, too, that looks like a frozen lake or ocean.
The update also brought two new outfits in the Tailor Shop (a snowman costume and a reindeer costume!) and all the regular markings of Christmastime in Happy Street–it snows every few minutes and Santa Claus drives through town in his sleigh. We can also visit our Christmas trees again to earn gifts for Christmas Day and the Advent Calendar should open again on December 1st! The app version description said there are some all-new tree and calendar gifts this year, so I’m especially excited about that. I can’t wait to see what we get!
P.S. – The skaters do something especially cute when the Ice Rink reaches level two… 🙂
P.P.S. – I wonder why the Happy Street Santa Claus is a pig. Maybe because pigs are fat and jolly? Maybe because pigs traditionally represent good luck and abundance? Here’s another idea why…
