What did you think of the podcast? What is your opinion on game developers producing games just in time for Christmas? Would you like to see Christmas themes in the Zelda series? How would you want to see them incorporated? Who do you think would make the best Christmas dinner in Hyrule? What is your opinion on the religious beliefs of the people in Hyrule? Did you agree with Athenian or do you have a different idea? What kinds of Christmas trees do you think the races of Hyrule would use? Did you like the Zelda Christmas carols?

    Love you Axle! Falling in the snow and getting attacked, I love it XD

    And I want Zelda WiiU for Christmas!!! Unfortunately, that will never happen this year…

    Aaanyhoo, I’ve gotta say that either Grandma (as you said) or Malon
    would make the best Christmas dinner. Grandma because… She’s a
    grandma. And Malon because… Well she’s a girl… and she lives on a
    farm, right? So she probably knows homecooked meals… Right? Okay, and I
    just noticed you said Malon too while I was writing th lol… Just one
    question: Do Hylians even CELEBRATE Christmas…?

    Worst cooks? I’d have to agree with you on the Gorons– HERE HAVE SOME DELICIOUS ROCKS!

    For Christmas trees in Hyrule, I’d really have to say Snowhead.
    Honestly, I don’t think Hylians would partake in or even know about
    Christmas, since they don’t know anything about Christianity or God…

    Love the carols, too! Great job, you guys :)

      you made that TOOOO long!!!! it took me like three minutes to read all that, and, PLEASE DONT MENTION GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • twistedaries398

    i want a wind waker v guide by caleb

  • DarkZelda

    OK that was the best carol EVER!! the only thing I want to know is how long it took you guys to write that!

  • Ben

    what a fabulous podcast you all really outdid yourselves! I loved the christmas carol best!

  • The Hylian Monolith

    I agree with Athenian. After all, it’s confirmed in ST. The Gorons believe in a mountain goddess, some humans and all the Lokomo, of course, believe in the spirits, and most humans think that the Spirits are bogus. It’s as clear an example as can be, and why should’ it be he same everywhere, every time?

  • Arcana

    In ALTTP, there is an official artwork of Link praying to a crucifix at a church, and in the Japanese version of the game he brings Zelda to a christian church, and in the first LOZ game there is a cross on his shield. So this means they know Christianity to a certain extent…

  • EpicPerson

    MWHAHAHAHA! Zelda got ran over by Epona! Lol
