In the spirit of the holiday season, we at Rag-NERD-rok would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our listeners of what’s important: Star Wars! Whether your preference is for the Original Trilogy or the Prequels, the Expanded Universe or the cartoons, this week’s episode is a celebration our favorite galaxy far, far away. And what would a Star Wars holiday episode be without mentioning that beloved Wookiee feast, Life Day? (There. We mentioned it.)

And may The Force be with you, always.
