A Very Merry Star Wars Christmas

So first let me say I am not talking about the Star Wars Christmas Special, I am instead (as everyone is) talking about the new Star Wars film.

And let me just say, I am not going to watch it today.

OMG gasp

I know, I know. As a major fangirl, how could I miss it?

Well first of all I am a little mad that they broke tradition and instead of having the film come out in May, they are releasing it in December. Star Wars: A New Hope May 25th, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back May 21st, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi May 25th, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace May 19th,  Star Wars: Attack of the Clones May 16th, & Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith May 19th. I mean come on guys, you’re not supposed to break tradition.

And the other reason? I’m afraid, very, very, very, afraid.

You see when I first found out that J.J. Abrams was going to do the new Star Wars franchise, I was actually happy about it. But then I found out that he wasn’t going to follow the Star Wars storyline, but create a new one.

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

And then I heard the rumors that Luke is going to go over to the Dark Side!

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

How could you betray me like that!!!!!

Luke was supposed to start the Jedi Academy again!!!! Han and Leia were supposed to be married!!!! And have a set of twins (one boy one girl) and another child that goes to the dark side.

Besides, if Luke goes to the Dark Side that completely ruins the original three films! He brought balance!

His choosing to die rather than kill his father was what made his father have a change of heart and redeemed him!!!!!! You can’t change that!!!! Jedis all the way not Sith Lords

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

So until I have gleaned enough facts from friends who’s opinions I deeply trust, I am going to wait to watch the new film.

Instead I am going to fulfill another one of my Christmas traditions: Star Wars Marathon.

StarWarsMarathon

Every year I watch the original three films. It started from channel surfing and discovering a marathon on Spike TV. It became a yearly one, when I traded in my prize for showing up to every Christmas Carol practice for cash and bough my own set of the Star Wars films on DVD. Everyone thought I was stupid for giving up the year’s deluxe gameboy, but I’d rather have Star Wars any day.

Star Wars

So I wish you all a very, merry Star Wars Christmas, whether you are watching the new or the old.

Since we are on a Star Wars theme, I thought today’s Christmas Carol would also feature an important star, the Christmas Star.

I choose the song Do You Hear What I Hear? This song was written right in the middle of the Cuban Missile Crisis. It was popularized by the Harry Simeone Chorale, who also sang The Little Drummer Boy. Many artists have done a cover of this song, from Bing Crosby to Carrie Underwood.

Of course my first introduction was in The Little Drummer Boy: Book II, the sequel to the TV special, claymation, The Little Drummer Boy.

I just love how beautiful this song is and could sing it over and over again.

Hey everyone, I am so sad to say this, but I just can’t complete the 12 Posts of Christmas. I thought I would but I ended up catching a virus and  getting really sick, along with having family/holiday things starting to occur. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and I promise you I will try to post something for Christmas.

Not to leave you all completely high and dry I’m going to end with my six favorite Christmas Carols.

6) Angels We Have Heard on High!

It’s such a pretty song! Plus the chorus is so fun to sing along with.

5) The 12 Days of Christmas

Who doesn’t like this song? It’s just fun to sing.

4) The Christmas Song

Another Bing Crosby! I just love his voice and this song!

3) The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)

Com’on it’s chipmunks! What could be cuter! Alvin and Theodore were always my favorites.

2) Do You Hear What I Hear?

I first heard it in The Little Drummer Boy sequel and loved it! It’s so pretty and here is a video of Bing Crosby singing in his melodious voice. I love the part that goes “a star, a star, way up in the night with a tail as long as a kite”.

1) We Wish You A Merry Christmas

My favorite verse is bring us some figgy pudding! We won’t go until we get some! I just love the fact that the carolers are demanding it! It always makes me laugh when I sing it.
