The the “Christmas in the Stars.” collaboration continues! I’m so glad to be working with so many good friends from around the Star Wars fan-site community. Over the next few days there will be a short, daily guest blog post about a favorite Star Wars memory from a friend of us here at the Star Wars Report.

Star Wars and Christmas, there is nothing else that comes more naturally for me than those two things. I have not always been the Fangirl I am today and while I liked Star Wars there was a time when I did not collect it and my toys of choice were not Star Wars related (BLASPHEMY I know!)

I really began collecting Star Wars figures when the Unleashed line was coming out (2008) as well as Galactic Heroes (at that time they were made by Playskool). Soon after that I started collecting all sorts of things and books became a huge staple of my collection.

Christmas 2010 was a magical Christmas for me. I received two of the coolest things I have ever been given and they remain to this day staples in my collection. These 2 items were things I had seen but had never even bothered to ask anyone for. I vaguely remember showing them to people online but never thought in a million years I would get them. Keep in mind that in 2010 I was 25 years old and the excitement that came out of me on that Christmas day was something I had not experienced since I was a 2-3 years old and got my Care Bear pajamas and Teddy Ruxpin.

The first of the two was a HUGE BOX and when I opened it all I saw was this big squishy mass of grey. As I pulled it out I realized that it was in fact….the Taun Taun sleeping bag. I immediately had to take it out of it’s plastic un-zip it and smell inside to make sure it did not smell and then climb in it. I wish I had pictures of that moment. The next moment was when I opened another box and inside was the collector’s editon of The Jedi Path. That moment might have been an even bigger moment than the Taun Taun. I opened it up, took off all the plastic and pushed the button…the lights turned on the sound effects played and up rose the book out of its vault. It was an unreal experience. The Jedi Path remains one of my all time favorite books and that vault was the coolest way to present this book nerd with a book ever.

It was after that Christmas that my book collecting took off and now I am 28 almost 29 and books are something I ask for every Christmas, including this year. Christmas is such a wonderful time for Star Wars, I could go on and on but I have one more thing that is tradition for me with Star Wars and I will stop. I now have an all Star Wars Christmas tree. It is black with multi colored lights and it is where I hang all my Hallmark Star Wars ornaments, this way they don’t have to fight for a spot on the big tree.

Merry Christmas everyone I hope your holidays are filled with Star Wars Magic.
