The Alternative

What I neglected to mention yesterday is that the endless rounds of “Sleigh Ride” were actually a welcome relief from the music that has become the Theme Song of Christmas in our household . . . The Imperial March, also known as the ominous tones accompanying Darth Vader whenever he appears on screen.

Last year’s Star Wars ornaments also play that tune, and oddly, I’m beginning to feel the holiday spirit when I hear it.

Family challenge: Come up with some holiday lyrics to go with the tune. Like, "Deck the halls with x-wing fighters, fa la la la la..."

This made me laugh. It's a reach for me, thinking of Darth Vader as festive, but I can imagine that if any family would embrace that, it would be yours.

Forgot about this ornament. Really well made.
