"This holiday is yours, where we all share with you the hope that this day brings us closer to freedom and to harmony and to peace. No matter how different we appear, we're all the same in our struggle against the powers of evil and darkness. I hope that this day will always be a day of joy, in which we can reconfirm our dedication and our courage. And more than anything else, our love for one another. This is the promise of the Tree of Life."
The Star Wars Holiday Special aired 34 years ago today. Whatever else that can be said about it - and there's a lot that can be said - it's hard to argue with the sentiment. Happy Life Day, Star Kids!
