The SWU's Holiday Countdown: December 1st

By: Dominic Jones

Here at The SWU we love the holidays!   Last year we had a Holiday themed logo contest on our Facebook page, and we're having another one this year, so be sure to get your entry in before December 14th!  On top of that, this year, we've decided to do something fun and have our own Star Wars themed Holiday countdown, where everyday in the month of December, leading up to the 25th, we'll have a Holiday themed post.  Over the first 12 days I'll be shinning the spotlight on some Holiday themed Star Wars art, merchandise, music, etc.  And then for the final 12 days, my friend and colleague, Irish Chris has something very cool in store for you guys!  So with out further ado, let's get the holiday fun started!

This first piece is a classic.  A painting by the late Ralph McQuarrie of Yoda dressed as Santa Clause!  This piece began as the 1981 Lucasfilm Christmas Card and, over the years, has become the basis for many more art pieces and merchandise (some of it may very be featured in this countdown).
