Darth Vader yule log video will have you feelin' that holiday Force

Sith the season.

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

The Christmas Yule Log broadcast has been a holiday tradition on many stations, going back 50 years to WPIX-TV in New York. It gets updated here with five relaxing hours of Darth Vader's cremation.

The scene is from Return of the Jedi, of course (whoops, spoiler alert: Darth Vader dies. OK, continue reading). Don't worry, neither Hayden Christensen nor Sebastian Shaw show up in ethereal blue Force outline, so there'll be no arguing over that change.

YouTube humorist Benjamin Apple is responsible for the Sith nuts roasting on an open fire. Play it and see how long it takes someone in the room to notice.
