Special Occasions occur at various times throughout the year in My Singing Monsters. These events only last for a specified period of time and usually correlate with a real-world holiday. The duration of each special occasion usually lasts about a month around the specific holiday. Currently, there are five known holiday celebrations in the game: Spooktacle, Festival of Yay, Season of Love, Eggstravaganza, and Summersong. Although it does not correspond to any real-world holiday, another special event, the game's anniversary, is celebrated during the Anniversary Month Celebration.

During Special Occasions, unique and elusive Seasonal Monsters as well as their Rare versions are available to buy or breed. After the holiday is over, any Seasonal Monsters the player obtained will stay on their respective island(s), but no more can be bred.

Another feature of Special Occasions is unique decorations. For the five holidays that correspond to a real-world holiday, one of the five Natural Islands will be decorated for their particular holiday, including all Obstacles. There are often decorations around the rim of the island, changes in the lighting and color scheme, and even different ambient sounds. For the Halloween and Christmas holidays, monsters may also wear costumes. If any type of monster wears a costume, the entirety of that species, regardless of island, gets spruced up. In other words, a dressed up Noggin on Plant Island will also be dressed up on Earth Island and so will the Rare Noggin. Costuming even carries over to Shugabush Island, Gold Island, Ethereal Island, Tribal Island, the Mirror Islands, and Composer Island, none of which have any real-world correlating holidays of their own. However, as part of the Anniversary Month Celebration, Gold Island is adorned with Anniversary decorations. Wublin Island remains the only island not to be affected by costume or holiday.

This page lists every change that occurs during all of the above cited festivities, including minor details such as new icons in the Map or different Obstacle types as well as their dates.

Halloween

These changes only affect the main Plant Island and do not apply to its Mirror Island. For Mirror Plant Island, the only change that occurs during the Halloween celebration, excluding monster changes, is the modified Obstacles.

Anniversary

In September, festivities begin on Gold Island to celebrate the anniversary of the game itself.

  • On every anniversary season, the loading screen changes its look.
  • In 2013, even though Gold Island was not decorated, MSM celebrated its anniversary with the release of Update 1.2.0, that brought with it the Ethereal Island and many other changes.

In 2014, the celebrations were composed of weekly discounts in various game mechanics, some of those currently unique to the celebration. The page Anniversary Month Celebration was created to cover said discounts. The Gold Island was decorated with pennants and balloons around its rim.

Gold Island Special

In addition, the festivities marked the release of many features, only available to app players, and not available to PC players, including:

In 2015, the start screen included a Rare Quarrister and a Rare PomPom, which replaced the common Quarrister and PomPom seen in 2014's start screen.

In 2016, the start screen was a bunch of monsters collaborated together in a colored scheme.

In addition to this, the following changes have been made:

  • Version 2.0.0., no longer Version 1.x.x format.
  • New graphical user interface, with new buttons, icons, etc.
  • The Rares are removed from the StarShop all-year-round, and they only now appear in rotation and/or with special events.
  • The addition of the now-discontinued Community Codes.

Notes

  • Spunge plan halloween

    The original plan for the Halloween Spunge

    Even though the Halloween celebration is centered on Plant Island, where the Pompom can never appear, Pompoms wear Halloween costumes. In 2014, the day before Halloween, the Spunge (which also can't appear on Plant Island) also put on a costume, dressing up as a Vampire. This was the result of a contest in which game players sent in costume ideas, with the winner being used in the game. (The Spunge's costume wasn't shown for the Windows version of the game.) This is the same with the Scups. (This monster can't appear on Cold Island)
  • The Spunge did not change appearance for the Christmas season in 2014-2016.
  • The Furcorn, Bowgart, Mammott, Spunge, Rare Furcorn, Thumpies, and Rare Thumpies are the only monsters which change their appearance for both Halloween and Christmas.
  • There is no costuming associated with Valentine's Day, Easter, or Summer.
    Cold Island Small Tree Holiday

    Charlie Brown tree

  • The Small Christmas Tree is probably a reference to "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown", as it is bending under the weight of a single red ornament.
  • The way the rocks on Water Island are decorated for Easter is a reference to the Moai Heads of Easter Island.
  • The Singing Monsters know Christmas as "The Festival of Yay" and Christmas Day as "Yay Day".
  • During the Halloween of 2015, some players experienced a glitch in which certain monster's costumes would be jumbled around, along with the Plant island.
  • As of October 19th, 2016, all the monsters dressed up are all from Earth Island.
  • Until October 2015, Ethereal Island was unaffected by holidays, as it had no holiday of its own, and none of the costumed natural monsters could reside there.
  • During the Halloween of 2017, there was a glitch on Composer Island that made Reedling's eyes, nose and mouth appear outside of it's mask.
What is festofyay

Official description as said by Monster Handlers about "Festival of Yay"

  • The "Festival of Yay" is officially explained by the Monster Handlers. It "is celebrated on Cold Island during the winter season," and is a "month of friendship and fun". It has been also said that the monsters in Cold Island "always keep their eyes peeled for a visit from Yool", since they "love the Festival [of Yay's] spirit".
