Ok, so what I am trying to do is make a present disappear when you click on it and have a toy or image appear. Ive looked all over the sites and can't find a good explanation for how to fade an image out and have another one fade in. here is my full code:
of course, maybe to much on :))

A Christmas History
The history of Christmas dates back all the way to 354 AD. It is called Christmas, but it is actually a
compound of the words "Christ" and "Mass." Before it was called Christmas, however, it was known as the Feast of
Nativity. Christmas marks the birthdate of Jesus Christ, the main figure in many different religions. Though
celebrated by Christians, there is a very considerable amount of non-Christians that celebrate this holy holiday.
Ever since 1870, Christmas has been a federally-accepted holiday. But it was not always believed that the 25th
was the birth of Jesus Christ. In fact, It was Pope Julius I that chose that date. Other churches, such as Greek
and Russian orthodox, celebrate Christmas 13 days after the 25th. The reason? It is known as the Three Kings Day,
and on this day, the three wise men found Jesus in the manger.
Customs and Traditions
There are many customs and traditions that come with the Christmas season. For most, this is what they look
forward to each year. Here are some of the most popular customs and traditions that take place:
- Singing Christmas Carols
- Pictures with Santa
- Christmas Lights
- Holiday Movies
- Presents Under the Christmas Tree
This beverage is egg milk "punch," and is best served chilled. The contents are of milk or cream, sugar,
and eggs that are whipped to perfection. Eggnog can be purchased with or without alcohol.
This is a Christmas Spirit must. Throughout the neighborhoods different citizens and groups will go around
to different locations and sing the most cherished and memorable Christmas carols. Some people might belong to a
specific church while others do it out of sheer Christmas spirit. Among these timeless classics include "Dashing
Through the Snow," "Deck the Halls," "Noel," "Silent Night," and "Jingle Bells."
It wouldn't be Christmas, some would say, without taking a picture with the big guy. The man in charge.
The one that has a list and checked it not twice, but thrice. Ol' Saint Nick himself, Santa Clause! Conveniently
stations in each mall, on every corner, on every coke bottle, and in every office party, this beloved icon of
Christmas pops up as soon as Halloween ends. He is commonly known as the fat, jolly guy witha big white beard
that slides down chimneys on Christmas Eve to deliver presents to little boys and girls.
Christmas lights are definitely a symbol that Christmas time has arrived. Right after Halloween is when
people start breaking out the
electricity-increasing lights to decorate the outside of their homes. Over the years, this tradition has surpassed
anything that we would have
thought of. Nowadays, it is common to see lights blink and flow with music. To do this, typically someone will
turn to an appropriate station
and the lights will dance with any music that is playing, from orchestra to techno to dubstep.
What are we going to do when it is too cold to go outside? Many have a solution: Watch Christmas movies!
That's right, bundling up with
some popcorn and warm hot chocolate and turning to Lifetime or ABC Family to see Groundhog's Day, The Grinch, Polar
Express, and of course, the
ultimate Christmas classics, A Christmas Story and Scrooge. Christmas time has definitely provoked some good (and
some not-so good) tales about
love and the Christmas spirit.
It is every kid's DREAM to come downstairs on Christmas morning and see the Christmas tree flooded with
presents while their stocking is
overflowing with candy and other assorted items. Better get the trashcan because the floor is about to be littered
with more wrapping paper than
