Check out my guest post on Mysti Parker’s blog about a favorite Christmas memory and another favorite topic–Star Wars: http://mystiparker.blogspot.com/2011/12/christmas-memory-with-author-cindy.html.
And while I’m on the subject of Star Wars and Christmas, writing the guest post reminded me of the Star Wars Christmas album, Christmas in the Stars, which came out in 1980. Fortunately it wasn’t as elusive as the ill-fated Star Wars holiday special, which I swear I did see on TV but only remember very little. Maybe it’s better that way. Those who know me know how fanatical I am about Star Wars. What can I say, it shaped my childhood!
So for a trip down memory lane, as I sit here listening to the record on my turntable (it still sounds pretty darn good), here’s the playlist:
Christmas in the Stars
Bells, Bells, Bells
The Odds Against Christmas
What Can You Get a Wookie for Christmas (When He Already Owns a Comb)
R2-D2 We Wish You a Merry Christmas
Merry, Merry Christmas
A Christmas Sighting (‘Twas the Night Before Christmas)
The Meaning of Christmas
My favorites were “The Odds Against Christmas” and “R2-D2 We Wish You a Merry Christmas.”
Are you a Star Wars fan? Do you remember the holiday album?
It all brings back the wonder and magic of childhood. Let the holidays begin!
