Christmas Record Breakers

Check out some of these interesting records like the largest wreath, the most expensive toy and the best selling Christmas song (no, it wasn't sung by the Chipmunks). Read on for the facts.

Biggest Selling Christmas Song

The best selling Christmas song wasn't sung by Mariah Carey - it was sung by Bing Crosby in 1942 and it's called White Christmas. The song sold over 50 million copies around the world and continues to be a holiday favorite today!

Most Valuable Christmas Card

The most valuable Christmas card was sold at an auction in Devizes, Wiltshire, UK in 2001 for �20,000. The card was hand-colored by illustrator John Calcott Horsley. The card was originally sent by Sir Henry Cole of Bath to his grandmother in 1843!

Most Expensive Toy Soldier

Looking for the perfect gift? How about a G.I. Joe? How about the very first G.I. Joe ever made? The 1963 prototype (original design) for the "real American hero" was sold in August 2003 for $200,000 US by creator Don Levine to a wealthy American businessman.

Largest Gift

The world's largest gift was the Statue of Liberty. The people of France gave it to the US in 1886. It's 151 feet, 1 inch (46.5 meters) high and weighs 225 tonnes.

Largest Christmas Angel Ornament

There's no way this angel is going on top of a tree. The largest Christmas angel ornament is over 18 feet (5.57 meters) high and over 8 feet wide at the bottom. It's not the height of this angel that's so impressive, it's that she's made out of 2946 beer bottles, which were all still full of beer! This angel was displayed on Alfonso Reyes Avenue, Nuevo Leon, Mexico in January 2000.

Largest Christmas Cracker

How many people does it take to pull the world's largest working Christmas cracker? We're thinking it took more than a couple to crack the 181 foot, 11 inch (55.45 meter) long and 11 foot, 9 inch (3.6 meter) high cracker that was made in Australia. It was pulled at a shopping center in Sydney, Australia on December 16, 1998.

I'm sad to see you leaving so soon, especially because we have only been friends for a little while.  I didn't know your birthday was coming up so quickly, or that you were going to be 18! I have lots of things to say about you (all good things), but it'll be hard to name them all. I just want you to know that it's not about how long you've been here, it's about the memories that last a lifetime. I hope you have a happy birthday and a great trip!

" In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule… long have I served as the guardian spirit… I am known as the Deku Tree. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me. Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy. However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy…. " *** In his tree-trunk home, the boy was tossing and turning on his little cot. The circular room was dark; it was nighttime. And, as it was nighttime again, his young mind was plunged into the same nightmare again.... Hooves, galloping in a rapid staccato, like a myriad of drums being pounded, raced across a dark path lit on either side by fire as tall as the boy. But they only reached the shoulders of the horse as dark as midnight, its master clothed in cloth and armor just as dark. But that wasn't what was scary... it was the aura of evil practically dripping off the man, with his fiery hair and dark, nearly-green skin.... And how real he felt. *** "...Navi... Navi, where art thou? Come hither...." Back in my clearing, a cyan ball of light entered my line of sight, gently bobbing a few feet off of the ground. A pair of barely visible clear wings were the only indicator that she was facing me. Compared to my massive size, she was almost a speck. " Oh, Navi the fairy... listen to my words, the words of the Deku Tree.... Dost thou sense it? The climate of evil descending upon this realm.... Malevolent forces even now are mustering to attack our land of Hyrule.... For so long, the Kokiri Forest, the source of life, has stood a barrier, deterring outsiders and maintaining the order of the world.... But, before this tremendous evil power, my power is as nothing.... It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begin his journey... the youth whose destiny it is to lead Hyrule to the path of justice and truth.... Navi, go now! Find our young friend and guide him to me... I do not Have much time left. Fly, Navi, fly! The fate of the forest--nay, the world--depends upon thee. "

So, this is a story version of the game  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time  that I'm writing for (a) fun and (b) one of my friends who is interested in it, but can't play it. Some of the characters' words will be direct quotes, and some won't. I'm going to try and make it as exact to the game as possible. I'll have direct quotes pointed out like this: " Hey, listen! " And more paraphrased things will be formatted regularly. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the story--coming up in the next post! I DO NOT CLAIM ANY PART OF THIS STORY--CHARACTERS, PLOT, LORE, AND EVERYTHING BESIDES THE FACT I DESCRIBED IT--AS MINE. ALL CHARACTERS, LORE, AND EVERY BIT OF THE PLOT BELONGS TO NINTENDO. I MERELY DESCRIBED IT AND AM DOING THIS FOR A FRIEND.

Basically you drink water and can't use the bathroom. there are many rules and different ways to play. But this is what it boils down to. let me know if you ever have played this game before, or anything like it.

i want to try to bring this forum back to life. but i would like to point out that if you say that because "X" its ok to kill animals, then if that same thing was present in a human, it would be morally justified to kill them. if choose that we can kill animals because of something but not humans for the exact same reason, then thats a double standard and logically inconsistant.
