General Tarkin had pondered about this question for a long time. Christmas mood meant better morale which meant better fighting, so it was imperative that the stormtroopers got into the Christmas mood. If not, a harmless little ship could rescue the princess or something ridiculous like that. Or even worse... The mere thought disgusted Tarkin. A silly attack of a handful fighters could destroy the Death Star if morale wasn't good this year, he still remembered last year's fiasco on the Star Destroyer. No, it had to be done, and Tarkin had come up with a nice little plan. One that couldn't fail.
Author's note: The late general Tarkin never succeeded in getting the troops into the Christmas mood.--El_Nazgir 08:48, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
