Happy Crossmas, everyone! Animal Crossing: New Horizons has launched on Nintendo Switch, and with everyone (hopefully) safe inside with their Switches, it's time to live the island life. We already have a wide range of tips and how-to guides, but you're here because you want to know how to sleep in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Getting into snoozeville is really easy. Here's how.


How to sleep in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

While you're still in the introductory tutorial section of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Tom Nook will let you know that you can go take a nap if the festivities of setting up and naming your new island bothered you. .


To sleep, you will need to return to your tent.

Once there, you can enter the tent and deploy the camping bed Tom Nook gave you by opening the inventory and placing it anywhere inside your tent.

Then just walk there and you'll step aboard, inviting you to sleep in for the day. If you select this option, the game will progress to "the day after", although you will wake up with your island in sync with your Switch's local time.

It's that simple!
