After you, beloved reader, finish reading this post, we will be 10 days down with two to go in our countdown. So, please enjoy the portion of our song we are presenting to you today!

“On the tenth day of Zelda-mas, my princess gave to me:
Ten Big Poe souls,
Nine hard levels,
Eight Siren Instruments,
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.”

Poe souls, or what are left of Poes after they have been slain, are collectible items in Ocarina of TimeMajora’s Mask, and Twilight Princess. In Ocarina of Time, however, 10 special Poes called Big Poes scatter themselves across Hyrule Field and only appear when adult Link rides around on horseback. When Link brings a Big Poe soul to the Poe Collector who resides in the remnants of Hyrule Castle Town, the Poe Collector adds 100 points to a membership card; after Link reaches 1,000 points, or all 10 Big Poes have been collected, the Poe Collector will give Link an empty bottle. To honor this major sidequest, have a listen to YouTube user DarkAnima‘s cover of the Potion Shop from Ocarina of Time, a theme which also plays in the background of the Poe Collector’s shop.
