We are at an amazing time in the history of Star Wars and an amazing time of year. Never before have we been able to celebrate Christmas along with the release of a new Star Wars movie. Since Lucasfilm’s acquisition by Disney, Star Wars has been on the forefront of TV advertisements, on the shelves at your favorite stores, and used in ad campaigns like no other time in its 38 year history. Coincide this around the Christmas holidays and you have a new tradition ripe for the making, which should include Star Wars Christmas decorations.
Star Wars Christmas decorations have been around for a long time, but since Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released so close to Christmas, it is time to share the love of Christmas and Star Wars together. Star Wars fans around the world, should dedicate a portion of their Christmas decorations to the galaxy far, far away. Let’s start by looking at some of the Star Wars Christmas decorations that can be currently found right now, to get you ready for both events!
Christmas lights are a huge part of decorating for Christmas, and this year, you can let R2-D2 help you out with that. Kurt S. Adler, has made some of the best Star Wars Christmas decorations on the market today. Their 10 Light R2-D2 set, is a fun, unique way to add a decorative touch to a room. They are highly detailed and feature the iconic, loyal droid. These Kurt Adler lights come in a set of 10 on a 30″ lead wire with 12″ spacing. They will make an ideal addition to the Star Wars holiday decor in your house. They are simple to use by just plugging them into an outlet and hanging them up. These lights give off a nice soft glow.
While I prefer the look of the R2-D2 lights, these do come in various flavors such as the Stormtrooper variant light set and the Boba Fett variant light set, and the Santa Yoda variant light set. Combining these sets and hanging them around the house will not only help spread the holiday cheer, but inform everyone that you are a Star Wars fan and you are proud of it!
We can’t have Christmas without ornaments for a Christmas tree right? Well Hallmark has been pumping out Star Wars themed ornaments for years now. The very first was a Millennium Falcon ornament that the company released in 1996, and they haven’t stopped since! Each year Hallmark releases brand new ornaments and they have become a collecting sensation.
This year you can choose from Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, C-3PO and R2-D2, Star Wars : The Empire Strikes Back – There Is No Try Yoda and Luke Skywalker Ornament 2015 Hallmark, and a fantastic Y-Wing with sound!
These Star Wars Christmas tree ornaments have been on fans’ trees since 1996 and have become a staple of holiday cheer! Not only are you gushing holiday spirit, but you are also adding some pretty cool items to your Star Wars collection.
Let’s not leave all the fun on the inside though, Christmas decorations can be on the outside of your house as well. In fact many families love taking a few nights and driving around neighborhoods with their kids, enjoying the Christmas decorations as part of their Christmas traditions, so why not show your Star Wars spirit in this area as well!
Airblown inflatables are a big part of some Christmas decorations, and now you can add Star Wars to the mix. Christmas Inflatables has released this brand new R2-D2 and C-3PO “Droid to the World” inflatable. These have internal lights that you can turn on at night and it stands at about 5.5 feet, so you know it will be the centerpiece of you outside display.
