Sometimes one forgets what Christmas is all about, commercialization. Befitting the goal of such a holiday season one of the masters of merchandising, George Lucas, did everything possible to cash in on his blockbuster success. Hell yes this included making an intensely trite and heinous Christmas album featuring Ben Brutt and Anthony Daniels from Star Wars turn a buck. Mostly very poorly written and sung but seasonally appropriate songs alluding to vague lines or concepts from the movie. C-3PO rambles on about some "S. Claus" and robot toy makers, really bizarre. I am sharing this as one of the few holiday themed albums I own. The reason for my ownership of this album is of course the novelty and when I was younger I was a huge Star Wars nerds. Co-opting the Christmas spirit to reference droids and galaxy-wide toy distribution might seems irrational and unnecessary, which it certainly is, yet it is something you can tell your friends about. This is why Easter is cooler, with pagan rituals, a zombie Jew, lamb meat, and no themed soundtrack. At least be thankful you didn't pay for it... may the force be with you.
