Below is a photo of yet another ornament from our Star Wars tree. I confess I’m a bit boggled by the number of Star Wars ornaments I own which feature Darth Vader dressed up in some form of Santa outfit. I love the irony, but it still feels odd 1.
I suppose I should be more concerned with the number of Vader and Dark Side accoutrements I’ve been gifted over the years. Vader is all over our Star Wars tree and when two of Central’s members decided I needed a light saber a few years ago they thought Darth Vader’s was an ideal fit. I mean, Vader is cool 2 but there comes a time when you hope people aren’t trying to tell you something 3.
Still, the irony of Vader offering a Christmas present makes me grin.
