Merry Christmas – We Dare You to Survive The Star Wars Christmas Special

Dec 25 2021

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Can you survive the Star Wars Holiday Special? You may need to spike the eggnog to give you extra-strength.

Behold the bane of George Lucas, the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special!

It was 1978 and CBS was desperate to attract young viewers.  While this youtube video is only 15 short minutes edited down from the full 98 minutes, it still gives you a sense of the absolute craziness that made it to small screen.  It is still is regarded as one of the most terrible things ever to get put on TV.

Extra points if you make it all the way through.

Let’s wash that out of your brain with everyone’s favorite Star Wars song:

What do you get a Wookie for Christmas (when he already owns a comb)?

Merry Christmas!
