Updated 20/7/20 – Fixed some localization issues
Your First Winter makes the forth and last sequel for Your First series, and will be covering activities players can do when farming is not available. Winter is ‘sort of’ special in game as it is the only season Lake Mine is opened, which allows player to mine valuable ores and cursed tools. It is also a good time to make friends with your villagers, or even fishing.
Continued from Spring, Summer & Autumn
- Offering Gift to Goddess – Everyday: Do so until Van and Lou make their appearance
- Church Confession – Every Monday, Wednesday, Raining Day 1:00 PM ~ 4:00 PM

Foraging White Grass
White Grass only spawns during winter and can be found at the back of church after players made friends with Carter. Players can choose to either sell the White Grass away, or better, save it to cook Relaxing Tea Leaves (recipe learnt from Lou).
Christmas Socks Event
Players who made friends with Ellen (4 hearts) can hand a yarn ball to her in her house during Winter 1 – Winter 23 within 9:00 AM ~ 11:00 AM. She will prompt about Christmas Socks and knit one for you. Once completed, you may find it hanging in your house.
Remember to sleep between 9:00 PM ~ 12:00 AM during Winter 25, and Thomas will act as “Santa Claus” to sneak into your house to leave a present.

As mentioned many times in earlier sequels, winter is often regarded as a quiet month. New players will quickly find themselves in lower income if they have not prepared well enough in autumn. There is not too much of a worry however, considering players can always head for Lake Mine to increase their earning. If plausible, it is highly recommended for players to aim for cursed tools, as winter is one of the best time to fulfill their curse removal requirements (particularly hammer and scythe).
