Day 2: The Star Wars Holiday Special

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, and sometimes the presents under the tree live up to or exceed the hype. Sometimes, though, a gift misses the mark. Such is the case with holiday specials. Perhaps the best example of a failed holiday special is the The Star Wars Holiday Special, which first aired in 1978 and is widely considered one of the worst holiday specials ever.

I wouldn't bet my life on it, but I have vague memories that make me believe that I watched part or all of it when it aired. I'm thinking that this year I find a copy online and watch it again (or, for the first time, if my memory is incorrect). Even with all the negative criticism, it can't be much worse than The Phantom Menace, could it?

This is part of my 25 Days of Christmas blog series.
