Spring 1 (Year Two and Every Year Onward)
Starting on the first day of each new year, Maria will come by your farm to wish you a Happy New Year.
On the last Sunday of each Spring, Maria will escort you to the picnic that Nina asked about hosting the previous day. If you said yes to Nina earlier, you will go with Maria to chat with her, Nina and Ellen on your picnic.
The event ends at 6 PM.
On Winter 24 each year (after 6 PM), Maria will visit your farm and ask you to come spend the evening watching the moon with her and the rest of the village girls. You automatically accept and go with Maria to look at the moon. Ellen even bakes you a cake!
Talk to all the girls to end the event and return to your farm.
Sanctuary for Maria
One morning you will awaken to find Maria standing at the entrance to your farm. She begs you to let her stay for a few nights. If you agree, she enters your house and stands beside your dining room table for a total of four days. On the fourth day her father, the Mayor, comes to your house to beg his daughter to come home.
It is then revealed that the reason Maria ran away was because her father had arranged a marriage for her. She tells him that she's not ready to get married! Seeing that Maria is refusing to budge, the Mayor finally relents and offers to talk about it if Maria comes home. He then leaves the house with Maria in tow. Before she returns to town she stops and thanks you for letting her stay.
Nina is Missing
Maria will visit your farm one morning to tell you that Nina never came home last night, and she is worried for your friend. Agree to help her and Maria will tell you to search your farm while she looks everywhere else. Enter the Sprite Cave beneath your toolshed before 6 PM and you will find Nina standing beside one of the Harvest Sprites. You confront her, asking her why she left home, and she'll tell you that she came here to pick the flowers growing in the cave (despite there being none) and dance with the Harvest Sprites.
When you tell her that everyone's been looking for her, she's shocked to find that it's been a full day! She thought she had only been in the cave an hour! She thanks you for letting her know and leaves the cave.
