It’s November 17th, and for many Star Wars fans, that means that Life Day is upon us. We’ve got a little bit of everything here for you today, starting with what this occasion is all about, for those of you who don’t know. After that, we’ve got an ambiance video for your background music today and a new merch collection that just hit virtual shelves this morning. Let’s begin!
What Is Life Day?
A longstanding Wookiee tradition, Life Day celebrates the values and tenets of Wookiee culture, including family, joy, and harmony. While Life Day is a celebration traditionally held at the Tree of Life on Kashyyyk and observed by extended Wookiee families, Wookiees throughout the galaxy still mark the day. When Wookiees were enslaved by the Empire, the holiday took on an even greater significance. Today, people from planets across the galaxy have embraced this tradition and made it their own by celebrating with festive décor, twinkling string lights, unique food and drink items, music, and activities. People share the hopes of celebrating freedom, harmony, and peace, no matter how different people may appear. At the end of the day, everyone gathers to sing songs and be reminded of their dedication, courage, and love for one another. This is the promise of the Tree of Life.Learn More
