I guess it's SE's twist on the Prince and the Pauper tale (Mark Twain) only this time with girls :D

P.S. I dunno what you watched as a child o_o but I want some of that monkey-turning-into-elephant stuff whatever it is.

Super late, but gosh! Not having seen Aladdin is like saying you've never killed Bubbly Bernie at least once! Gracious.

The lore for this event is really sweet, but I agree that it would have been a lot of fun to find out during in-game quests and re-enactments. Oh well, we shouldn't expect too much from events this year. Chin up for next!

This is a cute looking event, looks like Hina Matsuri! I got all excited reading the description, thinking there might be some of said "finest habiliments" as event items, but meh, just more food. Still, I like that they added the pretty decorations this time, gives it a more festive feel! With the last event, I kind of forgot there even was an event going on. xD

I think another poster above had the right idea, that these events are a good way to let us know about the lore and holidays of Eorzea, even if there isn't much to them this year. In game, it'd be kind of odd if the entire realm of Eorzea just ignored all holidays for a year or something. ^^

I think they're just putting in "filler" events to let us know when and what the events will be each year. Hopefully at some point when events can be a priority again, they will spruce them up into something great.

For those who don't know much about Japanese holidays, I'll explain this day. In Japan, on St. Valentine's Day girls show the boys how much they care for them. One month later White Day arrives, and this is when the boys show the girls how much they care about them.

So, in Eorzea it looks like these two events are back-to-back, rather than one month apart. The Valentione Day story was about Countess Arabelle de Valentione of Ishgard and how she expressed her love for her man. Now this Little Ladies' Day story is about how men express their love for their girls.


One of my favorite holidays personally, or one that I like the idea of anyway, since it's like a follow up holiday. I never lived in Japan, but I have Japanese parents, so they gave me candy for white day instead of the boys :P As a child I also enjoyed Children's day (which I think is supposed to be for boys?), and New Years (adults give money to children for luck). *Sigh* I miss being a kid and getting tons of free stuff every holiday.

I think it's sad though. I heard people don't celebrate White Day as much anymore and those that do usually just give gifts to their wife/girlfriends instead of like school mates and co-workers. Kind of like Valentine's Day in America I guess.

Also, I wish they would add a mail system soon so we can all mail each other fun, festive chocolates and stuff.

My guess is that we'll see a lodestone post outlining patch notes tomorrow. I haven't been wrong yet on guessing the patch date, so we'll see what happens this time.

It's pretty easy to tell that this "bell" thing is just a stand in event while the game is being worked on... :3

this IS NOT 1.15b

they have a ton of these holiday events lined up ready to go in, no extra work required

1.15b will be an actual version update, an event is not a version update

Indeed. I hope we see this "content patch" fairly soon. Patience is wearing thin, as I'm sure it is for other active players.

we have 13 days left in the month

patience is a virtue, now if they were late on it....i can understand the impatience but at this point people are just hopeless on the way they ar reacting to every day activity

Wait a minute you guys. Isn't this event based on Hinamatsuri? The Japanese Doll Festival (AKA Girl's Day)? We can even craft and eat Hishi Mochi.

Anyway, I think it's a cute story and celebration (even if the image of a little girl's tortured family kinda makes me feel uncomfortable), and I agree that SE's probably filling in the celebration with simple decorations and bells and some craft items to pave way for more intricate celebrations in years to come.

.....just as long as there is nothing on Easter Egg trade and selling. The image of people running around selling and auctioning lettered eggs while turning the middle of Bastok into the equivalent a fresh food market at closing time still haunt me to this day.

Santa outfits ,bunny helmet, candy and little girly days we need a manly event like saving a princess with explosions , monsters and meat. If only the bells would drop a 40 minute leve with all that. Turkey isn't real meat!Smiley: glare

little ladies day??...

more like fat guys play as thin female characters day...
#68 Feb 15 2011 at 10:00 PM Rating: Excellent
That would be sweet if completing this gave you the title of "God's Gift to Ladies."

On another note, that would be cool if we had titles.

EDIT: Or quests to get titles from...

Ahah was that it? Lol, it sounded much crazier when written down like this :P I was a bit thrown off by the 'movie' and was first thinking 'Wait... Jumanji? Nah....'
