    Here is some helpful information for those who are unfamiliar with the theme of the update!

    What is the Lunar New Year some of you may ask? Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. It is commonly called “Lunar New Year” because it is based on the lunisolar Chinese calendar. The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first month (Chinese: 正月; pinyin: zhēng yuè) in the Chinese calendar and ends with Lantern Festival which is on the 15th day. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as chú xī. It literally means “Year-pass Eve”.

    Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Ancient Chinese New Year is a reflection of how the people behaved and what they believed in the most.

    2020 is the year of the Rat, and it is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived at his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

    The Rat is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) Zi (子) and the midnight hours. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

    In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus. Because of their reproduction rate, married couples also prayed to them for children.

      I am really looking forward to what come the new devs up with. Maybe bongfish has created some of the content. And another free gift - this is really lovely. I have the Chinese New Year flag from 2013 in storage, thinking to place it in memory of this time.

      hopefully the missing gift boxes from jokey and the missing colours for stardust will be back, also the glitch when you tap on craters, that you have to do it twice to get the window for the menu. MIAB isn‘t giving the reward bug, sandboxes giving no rewards after two were collected... and so on, i am really looking forward to this new update.

        After you type the name you do need to put in a space, so see if this works

          International themes are my favorite and obviously I’m super excited that the new community designed Gargamel costume was included with this update! I’m stumped about the mystery box rat, since we already have Ninja Rat, I’m going to have to revisit some classic smurf episodes hoping to remind me who it could be!

            Yes, she had Squeaky, but he is in every area too, so if it is him it’s a second version of him as well.

            What if the rodent isn't a mouse or rat but some other type of rodent like a sqirrel. Didn't wild smurf have a companion squirrel

          I love the idea of a CNY update, and the theme fits in so well with Island! 🧧

                I love the bunch of floating lanterns we get in the Village as a "Tourist Smurf" prize in Chilly's game - I hope something similar comes to the Island.

                    Oh my goodness, it all sounds great! Got a guess as to what the Wonder might be, and will be super stoked if correct:

                    Spoiler!


                    Looking very forward to the new, themed buildings and deco, too.

                      This was my guess too - it will be sooooo awesome if it’s true. And a Smurfy Wonder that moves about! Better start saving resources quick...
