    Don't you think that Rovio sometimes should open the winbow to see if there is another world living out of american "culture" ????

    A special bird for the 4th of july : Mister Freedom
    A spécial Bird for thanksgiving : Cold turkey
    A special bird for the super bowl

    And Halloween Eddie....and Santa Claus...and Murphy the policeman.....

    Please think to Asian, african or european players and people !!!

    To be fair, the last event bird was Ded Moroz, which is Russian.

    I did't know it was russian ! thanks for the information
    But he is the exception. I think it could be nice to have special events from over the world

    Fire rooster was for Chinese New year, just it was last year

    And if you want other kind of special events - find Asian sponsors to sponsor these kind of events. It would be nice :)

    Thousands of non american people are sponsors of this game by spending money to buy gems or gold or whatever....should be enough to be considered as being nice !

    Any excuse to have a new bird or meaningful new content I’m in favor of

    I would agree that ABE and most similar games are focused more toward the USA/Canada and European audiences

    It would not bother me if there were Asian, African and Latin American themed events

    But do understand that the research department is not researching world events to use as events. Take what is obvious and marketable and go with it. Thus thanksgiving, Christmas and the super bowl. Surprised about the super bowl but good enough excuse as any at this time of the year

    I can agree for christmas....or Halloween. these are world known.

    80 % of earth population have never heard about thanksgiving or super bowl ! and 4 th of july means just summer or winter depending on where you are living... Every country has a national day but only one has his event and bird.

    I like every new event, it brings fun !
    I can understand that one of these events is developed toward american people. It means a lot of players.

    But not all those one in a almost a row !

    Not such a big problem anyway. Take care and have fun !

    It is strange that this discussion has gone this far without it being mentioned that Rovio is not a American company.

    But their target audience could be American, so is the content.

    They have a vision and don't have to include sacred Indian cows or whatever culture is aware of.

    If you don't like that - search for a better suited game (reply to the author)

    Agreed. I played a game that was originally Russian and later Lithuania or Latvia and they had a thanksgiving and Halloween events to because either the target customers were American or probably that the knowledge of American holidays are more common around the world than most other nations
