Every year on December 24th, after all of the Christmas Eve festivities with family are over and done with, I go home and watch the Star Wars Holiday Special. It’s my own personal tradition.

There’s VR porn, cooking shows, Jefferson Starship performances, murder, Bea Arthur, and much, much more.

Earlier today, I tweeted my longest thread ever, consisting of over TWENTY VIDEOS from the Holiday Special, breaking down a lot of the highlights. Here they are…

If you’d like to watch the FULL Holiday Special, I’ve included it down below. Tweet me your favorite parts later if you do, and happy Life Day to all!
