Essential Star Wars Christmas Celebration Guide

If you want an out of this world Christmas, you’re going to want to do it Star Wars style. Here we have all the essential Star Wars Christmas items to decorate and celebrate the holiday the way it should be done. The first thing you’re going to need is Star Wars Christmas Greeting Cards. Send them out to all your geeky friends or use them as invites to your ultimate Star Wars Christmas party.

Now you need to decorate your tree. Star Wars style, of course. How about some Christmas lights? You have a wide selection of figures here with 10 light sets of C-3PO, R2D2, the always popular Yoda and the probably only for the completist Clone Troopers.

No Christmas tree is complete without a tree topper and who better to go up there than Yoda with all his wisdom and Jedi fighting skills? The Kurt Adler Star Wars Yoda Lighted Tree Toppers come in two versions: 12″ figurine Yoda with light up lightsaber and porcelain Yoda in a star for the more traditional people who want a star on top of their tree.

Now it’s time to really decorate that tree and as far as Star Wars Ornaments go, there’s virtually every possible character, ship, and planet in the Star Wars universe available to you. Hallmark has put out a series almost every year, so the selection is wide. There’s LEGO Star Wars ornaments, M&M’s dressed up like Star Wars ornaments and even a little Death Star ornaments for those who were naughty this year (you know who you are).

With your Star Wars tree all set up, you’re not going to put regular boring wrapped presents under it, right? Did Han shoot first? Puhlease. You’re going with Star Wars Gift Wrap Wrapping Paper, of course.

You’re going to need a place for Santa to place that lump of coal he got for you, so hang up the Star Wars Christmas Stockings with care. You really should use care because some of them are talking stockings. Not sure what they say, but I’m guessing Yoda says something like “Christmas, a merry one you have”.

Now it’s time to set the table for Christmas dinner. Hopefully Mom didn’t make Jawa stew again this year. No matter what you serve, your table will look geeky great with a centerpiece like the Kurt Adler Star Wars Fabriche Santa R2D2. R2’s bearing gifts!

Since you probably don’t have The Force at your disposal for your Christmas party, you’re gonna need some help cracking the nuts. What better way than with Star Wars Nutcrackers? Available in Yoda, Darth Vader, Stormtrooper, and R2-D2, they measure about 7-10 inches tall each.

After your meal, you should probably serve a hot beverage to your guests like Darth Vader’s Dark Side Coffee. Yes this really exists.

With your house all set up for the Star Wars Christmas party, it’s time for you to get into the intergalactic holiday spirit too with a 17-Inch Plush Yoda Santa Hat with Bendable Ears. Stand out in a sea of regular ol’ Santa hats.

What would Christmas be without Christmas music? Boring. The geekiest Christmas music ever released was: Christmas In The Stars: Star Wars Christmas Album (samples available at that link), released on CD in 1996 and vinyl much earlier. It features classics such as What Can You Get a Wookiee for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb?) and R2D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas (which is the only song from this album available as an MP3 download). Unfortunately the album is way out of print and priced as a collectible. You can also try to find it on eBay.

Now you have everything you need for a complete Star Wars Christmas. Everything except The Star Wars Holiday Special. But don’t count on George Lucas ever officially letting that one see the light of day again anytime soon.
