it’s minus five tonight, and luckily i’m tucked up in bed under a nice thick duvet with a warm heater blowing. what could be more comforting? well, i’ll tell you what could be more comforting, sitting in front of an open fire with R2-D2, C3-PO and Santa!

christmas in the stars

you can imagine that all kinds of what the hell were going through my head when i first stumbled across this picture on my travels across the internet. apparently it’s the front cover of a 1980 album called Christmas in the Stars, which features a whole load of Star Wars themed songs about a factory where droids build toys all year long for santa. it also features the very first recording of Jon Bon Jovi on the track R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas. there’s all sorts of info knocking around on the wikipedia page about the album too, if you’re interested. anyway, hope that advent window number eight is to your liking! until tomorrow…

Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7.
