Warning! Make sure to stay on the farm on this day to receive the gifts! Talk to the girls when they arrive to receive their presents. They will walk away if you don’t speak to them, and you will miss your chance to get chocolate.

Tip: You can reduce the girls’ affection to blue or purple by giving them their hated gifts like stones, branches, or weeds. Keep reducing their affection level to blue or purple before the 14th of Winter to receive chocolate from them.

Getting Chocolate after Marriage

If you are already married, the Winter Thanksgiving Festival will not happen. Your wife will instead give you a chocolate type item on this day.

The only way to get chocolate after marriage is to reduce your wife’s affection level to blue or purple. Giving her things that she hates will quickly reduce her affection level. She will then put a chocolate inside your rucksack while you are sleeping.
