January 31st is Habitica's 4th Birthday! Thank you so much for being a part of our community - it means a lot.

Now come join us and the NPCs as we celebrate!

Cake01

Cake for Everybody!Edit

In honor of the festivities, everyone has been awarded an assortment of yummy cake to feed to your pets! Plus, for the next two days Alexander the Merchant is selling cake in his shop, and cake will sometimes drop when you complete your tasks. Cake works just like normal pet food, but if you want to know what type of pet likes each slice, the wiki has spoilers.

Birthday Bash AchievementEdit

In honor of Habitica's birthday, everyone has been awarded the Habitica Birthday Bash achievement! This achievement stacks for each Birthday Bash you celebrate with us.

Last Chance for Winter Wonderland Outfits, Wintry Hair Colors, and SnowballsEdit

Today is the final day of the Winter Wonderland Festival, so if you still have any remaining Winter Wonderland Items that you want to buy, you'd better do it now! The Seasonal Edition items and Hair Colors won't be back until next December, and if the Limited Edition items return they will have increased prices or changed art, so be sure to snag them today! Due to the fact that the Wintry Skins were released later than the rest of the Seasonal Customization items, we've decided to make a special one-time exception to their end date, so they will be available until February 3rd rather than January 31st.

Last Chance for Time-Freezer SetEdit

Reminder: it's the final day to subscribe and receive the Timefreezer Set! Subscribing also lets you buy gems for gold. The longer your subscription, the more gems you get!

Thanks so much for your support! You help keep Habitica running.
