The Life Day Event is a limited-time event in Star Wars: The Old Republic that only takes place once a year in the winter.
The event focuses on the fiction Star Wars holiday of Life Day, allowing you to throw snowballs, hug wookiees, and earn holiday-themed rewards. You can participate in the event as early as level 10, you just need to complete your first planet. Unlike the other limited-time events, the Life Day event has no quests and is not very involved – players often participate in the snowball throwing part of the event while doing Flashpoints, Operations, PvP or just while hanging out on the Fleet. – Swtorista
Galactic Seasons 3:
“Luck of the Draw” started a few weeks ago. Similar to the previous season, the Daily and Weekly Season Objectives will be communicated on a month-to-month basis. Here is the list of the Season Objectives from December 6th – January 10th.
Life Day debuted, in a big way, in 1978’s Star Wars Holiday Special; like many holidays on Earth, Life Day revolves around family. For frequent travelers like Chewbacca, this meant a family reunion on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk — even if that entailed dodging some Imperial stormtroopers along the way.
Over the years Life Day received mentions or features in various Star Wars games, including Star Wars Galaxies, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, and Star Wars: The Old Republic. More recently Life Day has made appearances in the short story “Whills” in From a Certain Point of View, the junior novel Join the Resistance: Attack on Starkiller Base, and The Mandalorian.
Origins and Meaning
Life Day began as a Wookiee holiday centered around the Kashyyyk Tree of Life, but can be celebrated by any species in any location. Princess Leia Organa once spoke of Life Day as a reminder that we’re all in the same struggle against the powers of evil and darkness.
Family, joy, and harmony are all among the values and tenets of Wookiee culture that are embraced on Life Day. It’s a time to share the hopes of celebrating freedom and peace, no matter how different we may all appear. People enjoying Life Day traditionally mark this holiday with festive décor, music, activities, and the serving of unique and special food items.
