For a Good Cause, It Is

Making a list, he is. Checking it twice, he must.
Find out who’s naughty and nice, he will.

Okay okay, what am I doing? I am talking like Yoda in honor of the giant statue that was built in Union Square this weekend. Made out of LEGOs, it was.

The statue was a 12-foot tall Yoda dressed as Santa, made entirely out of LEGOs. I was there on Saturday and it was only halfway finished. It took three days to build thanks to the help of thousands of us SF-ians. They had brick-building stations set up where I got to put together the pieces that made up this giant holiday figure. Fun and interactive, it was.

The event was designed to be the kickoff for LucasFilms + LEGO’s new website, This is a really nerdy way to help you get excited about the holidays, LEGO Star Wars style! There are contests, and games, and several cute videos, like the one of Santa Yoda handing out toys to all the good little Jedis. But the main point of the website is to get you to send out e-cards. For every e-card sent, they will donate one toy to Toys for Tots.  Create an e-card, you should. Spread holiday cheer, you will.

Here’s the card I made:


Coming to town, Santa Yoda is!
Tired of the Yoda phrases, you are, mmm?? Talk like normal, you want? No. Not until you go to and make an e-card.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Here is a great article from about the event.
Yes Leia, there is a Yoda Santa made out of LEGOs.
