Here we are at day number seven in our quest to celebrate Zelda-mas. Time to joyously mark this occasion by singing along to today’s little tidbit of our song!
“On the seventh day of Zelda-mas, my princess gave to me:
Seven years transpired,
Six Sage Medallions,
Five Golden Bees,
Four Mirror Shards,
Three Goddess Pearls,
Two Kinstone halves,
And a quest from the Great Deku Tree.”
Seven years is how long Link slumbered in Ocarina of Time after he, as a child, drew the Master Sword from the Pedestal of Time. Because he was the one able to pull the Master Sword from the pedestal, he became dubbed the Hero of Time, and using the sword as a key alongside the power of the Ocarina of Time, traveled between the two eras seven years apart to destroy Ganondorf. In addition to this famed gameplay element of time travel, Ocarina of Time is also widely acclaimed for its fantastic musical score. So to celebrate the greatness of this game, have a listen to The Bradley Pops Quintet perform their Ocarina of Time medley.
