    Hello every one may you all have a wonderful Christmas and
    a safe and prosperous New Year.



    The Birth of the Force
    a short Christmas Story



    The snow was heavy on the ground the temple was at peace the celebrations would begin in a few hours.

    Each year at this time all Jedi across the galaxy would give thanks to the maker.
    It was said that Ten thousand years ago the Jedi were created. The first child of the force was born and from that child, grew a nation of Jedi.
    The force spread throughout the galaxy claiming more and more young to follow in the footsteps of the original Jedi.

    He was born on this night to parents void of the force, but full of love for one another and when their child grew they realised he was gifted and the news spread and then others would tell of their child who was gifted with the force.

    With time the force produced many who were gifted and they banded together to become Jedi, saviours of the weak, defenders of the innocent and protectors of all kind.

    It was so and in the present, the Temple housed many who were descendants of the first, and they would celebrate his birth, with meditations and then a lighting of candles for every member, be they at the Temple or on a mission somewhere in the galaxy and they would light candles for those who had passed back into the force, to become one within the great vast tendrils of living force permeating the existence of every Jedi.

    But sadness came with the celebrations, one of their own was lost. A last minute mission saw the taking of one so young and bright in the force that all were saddened by his passing. It was unknown if he had actually passed into the force, but the Master sat in the Garden where the celebration of life would take place hoping with all his heart that the quiet and cold bond of his beloved apprentice would somehow burst through the blackness and glow, as it did for the past fourteen years.

    The child of his heart was born on this night fourteen years ago a reminder of the first Jedi born, his light shone just as bright, it was told in the archives that many thousands of years later another would be born to continue the quest for everlasting peace throughout the universe.

    The Master wanted it to be his child, he wanted the force to pronounce that their chosen one had been born again. Not lost on some force forsaken planet where evil reached out and snuffed his life away before he had been given a chance to make his mark in the galaxy.

    It had been a week since the search was cancelled, all hope was lost they said.

    The Master was injured and needed medical treatment, he fought to remain to search for his apprentice, but he was outnumbered and although he stood head and shoulders over most of his peers, they had forced him back to the Temple.

    His heart was heavy, his child, his Obi-wan was lost, all alone on a planet that held no warmth, had he died all alone. That thought, weighed heavy on Qui-Gons shoulders, he'd promised his apprentice that he would reach Knighthood. That the force would protect him because he was special, he'd been born on the very same night as the first known Jedi, it was said that he was born at the very same minute and second.
    Qui-Gon chuckled to himself how did they know, how could they tell, it happened thousands of years ago, how could they possible know the exact time of birth.
    But as Master Yoda had said to Qui-Gon many times, ?The force knows well when it all started, who are we to agree or disagree. The force has decreed it, It just is."



    As the time grew ever closer, all Obi-wan?s friends gathered in the garden and the snow drifted down softly covering the trees and every where there were candles, the hour was at hand.
    They would wait no longer, it was final then, he was lost they would remember the fun loving bright light that was Obi-wan, never to see his smiling eyes his fun loving laugh his wicked sense of humour.

    Qui-Gon would lead them off by lighting the first candle, a long blue and green candle, perched upon a rock, it stood tall

    Oh, wow, that was wonderful! [face_love]

    Qui-gon took a step forward and raised up his hands, outstretched to receive his child, and said child was running down the ramp and with tears glistening in his eyes, tears of joy to be reunited with his family
    with his Father, Mentor and friend.
    [face_love] Awww, I loved that, very sweet and moving!

    Thanks for the great story, Gkilkenny, and Merry Christmas to you too! [face_love] @};- (There aren't any Christmas faces, meh!)

    beautiful story gkilkenny! it really captures the spirit of christmas!
    Qui-Gon would not give up hoping for a miracle, outwardly he was the picture of a calm and reserved
    Jedi Master but on the inside he was praying to the Force

    i loved that! it's nice that they got their little christmas miracle in the end!

    Wow, such a wonderful and beautiful story!! It is so uplifting, really lifted my spirits and kept me smiling for the whole day [face_love]

    Draped in a white cloak, the light behind the figure sent beams of light out in all directions, but the force was singing, and everyone knew that a life had been given back to them on this night of nights.
    Qui-gon took a step forward and raised up his hands, outstretched to receive his child, and said child was running down the ramp and with tears glistening in his eyes, tears of joy to be reunited with his family
    with his Father, Mentor and friend.
    They embraced and the thoughts of how? and why? and where, would be discussed later, but for now, they would celebrate the birth of the Force, and the return of a child to the fold.

    In this winter wonderland that was called the Jedi Temple.


    Your writing is so excellent!! I really, really loved this viggie. So sweet and great, I loved the last line a lot too [face_love] [face_love] Again, great job, and thank you, I wish you a very merry Christmas and a great new year too! [:D]

    I am so glad that the Force brought Obi-Wan back to the Temple, and that the Lord has blessed us with you and your wonderful gifts in story telling! [:D]

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
