Advent Calendar 2012.

Hey guys! Here is my blog advent calendar for December 2012. Enjoy! Number 1 is already open for you- sorry! December 1- TRAIN! Yeaah! We love trains! Did you know that Because trains are heavy and fast – they also cannot stop in a hurry. In fact a fully laden freight train can take up to a kilometre to stop. Similarly, a train is guided by the rails on which it travels, and cannot swerve to miss an object that may be on the tracks. This is why a motor vehicle must always give way to a train or other railway vehicle. Fact gotten from: There is a type of train that does not even touch the rails! It uses magnets to be pushed along the air. Cool, eh? I'm so going on a train like that! 24 days until Christmas. December 2- PEANUTS! Nom! I'm so addicted to peanuts! Which is your favourite type? I love salted ones best! Here are 5 fun facts I got from: Fun Facts It takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter. There are enough peanuts in one acre to make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches. By law, any product labeled "peanut butter" in the United States must be at least 90 percent peanuts. Peanut butter was first introduced to the USA in 1904 at the Universal Exposition in St. Louis by C.H. Sumner, who sold $705.11 of the "new treat" at his concession stand. In 1884, Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Montreal, Quebec was the first person to patent peanut butter. 23 days until Christmas! December 3- Tractor. Nothing very interesting about tractors, is there? Any way, they are quite nice XD 22 Days until Christmas! Sorry for such a short post today... longer tomorrow! December 4- Football! Football is a VERY popular sport and VERY famous. This year, the Euro 2012 finals,held every 4 years, were held in POLAND! In June... I miss these days XD Told you this post is gonna be longer. 21 Days until Christmas! December 5- Lion.Lions are nicknamed 'King of the Jungle'. Apparently, they are not very harmful, but bear in mind they have strict territory policies. I love female lions <3 !!! 20 Days until Christmas! December 6- Shoe filled with candy! Today is St.Nicholas day. Polish children and even adults get presents on this day- they also get Christmas gifts! Aren't we lucky! I do know that other countries too, follow this tradition. ^.^ 19 days until Christmas! December 7- Mushrooms. Everyone heard of Toadstools- poisonous mushrooms. Loads of mushrooms are edible...nom nom! I don't like them much, what about you? 18 Days until Christmas! December 8- Moon. The Moon is Earth's natural satellite. It has many seas (dark patches) and craters. It takes 28 days to Orbit once, changing shape as it does so due to the sun's light. The moon does not emit (give off) its own light-it reflects from the sun. I know more but I'm sort of running out of space! 17 days until Christmas! ADVENT CALENDAR NOTE: ALL FACTS ARE TAKEN OFF THE INTERNET AND I SAID WHICH SITE I GOT THEM FROM. I MIGHT GET THEM FROM A BOOK, OR I MIGHT WRITE THEM MYSELF, BUT I DO WRITE WHERE I FOUND THEM!!! Just a note...
