The other day, I was looking for something on-line. I Googled “Star Wars” and up came the Lego’s Star Wars Advent Calendar, on Amazon.com for $39.99. Hmmm. I checked with a 10 year-old boy whom I know is into Star Wars. Yes, he has had one of these for the past several years. He brought in various Lego figures that come with the each day of the Advent Calendar. Hmmmm. I had a little cognitive dissonance with the Darth Vader Santa. No baby Jesus or donkeys in this Advent Calendar.
If you are looking for a little more Christ in your Christmas, check into the BBC Music Cathedral Advent Calendar on their website. Each day you can view a cathedral and link to a Christmas carol sung in that cathedral.
Otherwise, wait to see if Anakin Skywalker pops up in the manger this year.
