Editorial Introduction

The first question on everyone's mind is probably, "Why?!"

The answer to that is, "Because no one else would."

This site was created as a labor of love in homage to the 25th anniversary of The Star Wars Holiday Special, which aired one time only on November 17th, 1978 and has been virtually lost ever since. The intent was to gather as much as there is to possibly know about the Holiday Special and document it in great detail, since this has never really been done before.

Most websites that cover the Holiday Special can't seem to get past how awful they thought it was. We are well aware here that this particular film is not the brightest star in the Star Wars galaxy; however, we feel that there are a lot of good or enjoyable aspects about the Holiday Special that are often overlooked. Additionally, for those of us who saw the show during its original airing in 1978, there is a certain feeling of nostalgia attached to it that is trapped in that time period, and the Holiday Special is part of that.

Take a look around the site, and whether you like or hate the Holiday Special, we hope that you will enjoy what we've put together here.

Happy Life Day, everyone!
