I seem to remember last year's was on Thursday, Feb. 14. Why do I remember? Because I was preparing for a long weekend trip, and my phone just lit up with messages! That one was probably about 12pm ACC time, because I watched it on my phone sometime in the afternoon my time. Mario Maker 2 was one of the big news...
I'm going away again this year around the same weekend, so I wouldn't be surprised if there is a Direct on the 13th. Whether it's AC-specific, who knows? Hope so! So I'll watch it later.
In terms of time of day, usually 12pm or 6pm ACC time? Again, because people text me while I'm either commuting or busy at work. So I watched later.

^yeah, lots of speculation and rumours going around right now that there will be a general direct on the 13th, then an AC direct on the 20th. OF COURSE those are the only two days I work during the day this month, but what can ya do. it's not set in stone so this info could be totally wrong
and I also tried to hunt down as many air times as I could and I think you're right, that they usually air at 12 or 6. if it's under an hour and airs at 12, I'll be able to watch it JUST before leaving for work (fingers crossed!), but if it airs at 6, I'll get home just in time to miss it
but yes, I'm sure you all care very much about whether, I, personally, will be able to see it live

I'm thinking it will be on the 3rd of next month as that 30-second trailer with the mother and daughter had a scene where the date was March 3rd for only one second but I'm hoping we do get one this month.

I would worry too much about that - there've been ads for other games where the game-footage that was on the consoles or TVs that were in-shot was using then-unreleased patches, too (if memory serves, one of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ads did this). The footage is probably added in post and might've been recorded by play-testers or something like that, which is why I'm guessing that this sort of thing sometimes happens.
Ysna887 - Wow they really made a Twitter page just for that one prank post. That's some dedication.
Imagine if it was the 13th though... it would be just like the Smash 4 situation, where someone Photoshopped Palutena into Smash, then revealed it was a hoax, then Nintendo revealed that she actually was in Smash.
Tbh I'm more concerned about the general Direct instead of the AC one.
Don't get me wrong, of course I'd like more AC info. But I'm not desperate for it like most other fans are. I could go until release date without anymore info and I'd be fine.
But the general Direct... we really don't know much of what's coming this year from Nintendo, besides AC. Is Metroid ready to be shown off? Is BotW 2 ready to be shown? Will there be new Mario games? We have no idea. That one is what I'm really hyped for (and ready to be let down if necessary ).

Ard you'd be surprised the lengths people will go to :/
I'm hoping that this fake-direct thing will push nintendo into releasing a real one.. I'm not too concerned with getting an ACNH direct anymore myself, since I have it pre-purchased now, and my system coming next month.
I'm not really too sure what they'd show off either honestly.. But more than likely, if we do manage to get a direct this month, it will include some sort of ACNH info...looking back tho, there has been a feb 13th direct in 2019 and 2014, so we could see something then maybe, or we could get one the 20th, or maybe in march just before release... there's way too many variables to be 100% sure....
everyone who predicted the 20th should get a prize
