Life Day was a time-honored holiday observed by the Wookiees on their forested home planet of Kashyyyk. It celebrated the values and tenets of Wookiee culture, including family, joy, and harmony. Traditionally, Life Day celebrations were held around the Tree of Life on Kashyyyk and observed by extended families. However, the Wookiee diaspora of the galaxy still marked the day. When Wookiees were enslaved by the Galactic Empire, the holiday took on an even greater significance.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Life Day originated in The Star Wars Holiday Special, a television variety show that was spun off of Star Wars, George Lucas's film of the previous year. In the special, Han Solo and his Wookiee first mate Chewbacca visit Kashyyyk so the latter can celebrate Life Day with his family.[2]
