In Animal Crossing New Horizon, you are able to find and get ornaments such as red, blue and gold ornaments. But, how to get the ornaments in the game, especially the gold ornaments? Here, we will explain about it for you.
Getting the Gold Ornaments
If you want to get the gold ornaments, you have to shake the pine trees and then you will see they fall out of the trees. You can do it during the Holiday season from December 15th to January 6th. You are able to shake the tree on and on to get an unlimited amount of ornaments, but if there have been 10 ornaments which fall to the ground, they will stop spawning, So, you are able to get those 10 ornaments and then go back to shake the tree.
It is important for you to know that when you shake the tree, the Gold variant is relatively uncommon. So, the blue or red ones may fall more frequently. Usually, for every 10 ornaments, there is one Gold ornament.
It is important for you to note before you shake a pine tree that only pine trees with decorations on them that can give you ornaments. Ornaments will not be dropped by Fruit-bearing deciduous trees and coconut trees. If you think that your island is rather low on pine trees, you are able to consider planting some of them in advance.
