[YouTube] Star Wars Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments: The Prequel Trilogy

On December 24th I had a post about 14 ornaments for the first three Star Wars movies with a video showcasing the ones that light up and/or have sound. This post features eight that are based on the prequel trilogy with two that have light and/or sound. Like Boba Fett, Darth Maul cannot stand on his own so his photos vary slightly. Also, like the Ewoks of the original trilogy, the Jedi Council ornaments are miniatures. Are you wondering why this post is appearing on January 7th? I don't plan on talking religion (or politics) on this blog but I do try to tie some posts into current events and although I cannot keep track and post something for every holiday around the world, January 7th is Orthodox Christmas.

Technically this is my Christmas though as a kid I celebrated on both days. The 25th is my mother's Christmas and being in the U.S.A. that's also when schools have the long holiday break so that was generally our big celebration. If January 7th didn't fall on a weekend as it does this year then it made the day a little challenging since I'd have to attend school during the day, then church and celebrate with my father's family in the evening, while also trying to get my homework done and be ready for school the next day. It didn't help that the church we attended was close to an hour drive away after my family moved when I was in the 3rd grade. Of course, no kid is going complain about having two Christmas'.
