Star Wars: The Old Republic is celebrating the end of the year the only way a Star Wars property can, with Life Day.
This holiday is yours, but we all share with you the hope that this day brings us closer to freedom, and to harmony, and to peace. No matter how different we appear, we’re all the same in our struggle against the powers of evil and darkness. I hope that this day will always be a day of joy in which we can reconfirm our dedication and our courage. And more than anything else, our love for one another. This is the promise of the Tree of Life.

Life Day originated on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk and is a celebration of life, family, and friends. First mentioned in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, it’s now become the de facto end of year holiday for the Star Wars Universe. Which is funny considering November 17 is the official Life Day celebration, at least according to StarWars.com. But that isn’t going to stop any game, especially one that is no longer considered canon, in joining in on the end of year event fun.
Running from December 13, 2016 through January 10, 2017 you have plenty of time to collect the goodies and do the all the things.
