Growing up, one of the things many children who celebrate Christmas did was create an Advent calender to countdown the days until Christmas.
For the most part, these calenders involved red and green rings of construction paper that you would rip off one-by-one until the big day finally arrived. Now, a small company has decided to put a unique twist on the idea of the calender in the form of a Legend of Zelda-themed calender.
The new calender will take the 24 masks from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and use them as the place holders for the 24-day countdown.
“I never expected a pet project such as this to grow into anything more than a fun personal calendar perched on my desk,” said Matt Fox, founder of Culture Cal, in a release. “The encouragement and enthusiasm of those closest to me has provided the intrinsic encouragement needed to approach the kind folks of Kickstarter to help spread this love of pop culture nationwide.”
You can find out more about the calender on the project’s Kickstarter page.
Mike’s Musings: I completely forgot about the idea of the Christmas countdown calender until this came across my desk. I used to do these with my brother and sister every year growing up. It brings back a cool feeling of nostalgia, and the Zelda twist to it all is an awesome aspect.
