This Mother's Day has been a bit difficult for many moms and their children. The coronavirus pandemic has made it hard for families to truly spend time together, so people have been forced to get creative. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has allowed many families to do just that, as players met with their moms to spend some time together in the game. It might not be as special as visiting in real life, but it has allowed players to get that bonding time with their parents that a lot of people have been missing. It's just another way that the Nintendo Switch game has managed to bring people together!

There were digital spa days...
...and even museum trips!
People gave their moms fun, in-game gifts.
Some even got fresh flowers.

Players really got creative with it!
Couldn't really do anything for my mom today for Mother's Day so I just made her this garden on Animal Crossing. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! #AnimalCrossingNewHorizions pic.twitter.com/yu45QGniGk— Wok (@wokalpajaro) May 10, 2020
