What Makes a Good Star Wars Nativity?

I saw this on Reddit:

OK, a holographic Ki-Adi Mundi where one might expect an angel is interesting. But why would Han and Leia give birth to Yoda, or even just be next to Yoda in a manger?

If you’re going to put Star Wars or other action figures in a nativity scene, please give some thought to it and have it make sense!

This one (also via Reddit) is perhaps better. I can imagine Herod hiring one of the best bounty hunters in the universe…

  • In Catalonia, all good Nativities have a Caganer, a ridiculous figure defecating in an otherwise sublime scene. In Star Wars, such a figure is called a Jar Jar Binks.

    This is disgusting. But if Leia did indeed have an affair with Jabba the Hut (come on, she was in a harem, why else would Jabba keep one), and miraculously became pregnant, Hans would be the “step” father of the rather larger-than-life son. Cringe instead of creche. Jabba is looking down from heaven, with a smile. And Darth Vader also has a smile, thinking you should not have gotten married. Typical family relationships during the first Christmas gathering with the newlyweds.

    • Yes, a good scenario to make sense of it. And if Han Solo turned out to be Palpatine’s son, this could be quite the family photo! 🙂
