While July 7 marks the last date of the in-game event in the virtual world, it coincides with the exact day of the Japanese holiday. This implies that as soon as the event gets over in the game, even the limited-time Bamboo Grass decoration will also get over in Animal Crossing.
Gamers will now have to wait for a full year if Nintendo decides to bring back the festival in the game yet again. However, given that there are not many events lined up this month and how Tanabata has been popular among the fans, it remains a possibility that it is introduced again next year.
Tanabata also known as starcrossed day
It should be noted that the starcrossed day is a Japanese legend that celebrates the coming together of two lovers from the opposite ends of the galaxy which falls on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month. Moreover, this festival first appeared in Animal Crossing: New Leaf and its popularity have forced the makers to introduce it even in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Several gamers have pounced on to get the limited-time Bamboo Grass decoration. While some have decorated their islands with it, others have kept it in their inventories. Interaction using the item also opens up different levels of conversation since it is a festival where people write their wishes on a piece of paper and tie it to the plant, gamers can get to read their wishes when they interact with the item.
