Pegman – Merry Star Wars Christmas

Here is my story for What Pegman Saw, which this week takes us to North Pole, Alaska.

Hopefully you guys have either seen Star Wars or are familiar with the story, or this story’s going to be reasonably nonsensical.

I have just cooked a nice ham so the kitchen smells all hammy and I have been indulging in my Christmas Eve tradition – wrapping presents while watching the greatest Christmas film ever made – Die Hard. I’m just at the bit where there’s “four assholes coming in the rear in standard two by two cover formation”.

And yea did it come to pass that Santa was seduced by the Dark Side, and verily were there no more presents. And it is written that, lo, young Fluke Skyhumper did come to Santa, for verily was Fluke the son of Santa.

And thus spake he, “I feel the good in you, Father (Christmas),” and lo did Santa reply unto him “Thee wilt join me on the Dark Side,” and verily did Fluke refuse.

And thus did they fight, yet neither wouldst kill the other, for kin they were, yea verily. And so didst Santa’s evil master Emperor Rudolph’s nose glow red and did emit lasers unto Fluke. And then did Santa attack Rudolph and did save his son Fluke, yet Santa, returned to good, was gravely wounded, yea verily, and didst he die.

And so endeth this tale, yet never more were there presents, for Santa had perished. Merry Christmas 🙂


Note: this is a work of fiction. Santa is of course alive and well and will be delivering presents as usual this Christmas. Yea verily.

    I cracked up at your preamble. We just got done watching Die Hard here too. I wonder if Santa might have fared better in your story if you hadn’t been watching it. 😉 Happy Holidays!

      Yes, maybe I should have been watching something jollier 🙂
      Merry Christmas!

    Sending warmest greetings from the chilly prairie (-28C at the moment): Have yourself a merry little Christmas. All good wishes for a successful New Year, Ali.

      Minus 28C? How can that even happen? This winter here it has plummeted to the dangerous depths of +2C once so far… 🙂
      Merry Christmas to you too!

    LOL you’re a complete nutter, Ali 😀 It’s funny you should mention Die Hard, we watched both Die Hard I and 2 last night. So many scene’s you just love and look forward to, no matter how often you see the movies.


    • December 26, 2017 at 7:20 am

      Lots of people seem to have watched Die Hard over the last couple of days. I knew it was a proper Christmas film 🙂

    Yay verily, how sad. Did Fluke then transform into Santa with the power of the Force? Good writing, Ali. 😀 — Suzanne

    Hmmm…. The choice between an evil Santa and no Santa at all… A hard one. Great parody.
