February 16th: Happy Chinese New Year!

Dear Growtopians,

This week we rejoice in one of the world's most celebrated events: Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival!

With this new Annual Event, we've added all kinds of fun for you to discover from new Chinese decorations to a grand raffle with fantastic festival rewards (more details on the forum)! While you're exploring, don't forget to nab the event's unique blocks of the day - splice their seeds and see what happens!

Also, we congratulate USmom for completing ALL the epic quests! That's a long, hard journey, which is why we released the Talaria last week to commemorate it! Check out USmom's sponsored item now!

Enjoy the festival, and Gong Xi Fa Cal!
