  • While the anniversary article stated that the earliest characters would receive this gift would be August 25th, 2020 -- the gift could have been sent out as early as August 23rd, 2020 05:30 (UTC), depending on when the character was made. This is due to gifts being sent out every 365 days; not accounting for the additional day in leap years.
