What is Wookiee Life Day?

Wookiees have a primitive patriarchy with a complicated lineage structure, initiation rites, and a religion that rejects materialism. One of the most important Wookiee customs is Life Day, wherein extended Wookiee families gather and celebrate a day of joy and harmony, as promised by the Tree of Life. Even the Imperial blockade that is stationed around their enslaved home world could not keep Wookiees from recognizing this most important day.

An Artist Rendition of the Tree of Life

 

Wookiees greatly value morality, courage, compassion and loyalty. A sacred and ancient Wookiee tradition is that of the honor family. An honor family comprises a Wookiee's closest friends and companions. These family members pledge a commitment to lay down their lives for one another, as well as members of any honor families these individuals may have.

The celebration known as Life Day is a celebration that is usually held at the Tree of Life on Kashyyyk, but because the Wookiee's are enslaved by the Empire and they have traveled to many places in the galaxy, they have held their holiday wherever they were and have invited their non-Wookiee friends to be a part of their celebration of life as part of their honor family. Originally, the celebration is held once every three years, but as the joyous holiday has spread through the galaxy, many species and cultures hold the celebration once a year.

Being a Part of Life Day

Life Day is upon us. Traditionally celebrated on the Wookiee home world Kashyyyk, Life Day is a time to reflect on the renewal of life and to remember those who have passed on. In recent years Life Day traditions have been adopted by many species across the galaxy. Wookiees will often brave adverse conditions to make it home for this holiday, as it is an important time for family bonding and thankfulness. Life Day has become increasingly important to Wookiees since the Imperials have enslaved many of their kind.

Player's are encouraged to celebrate Life Day during the month of December.

Where to find the Life Day Wookiee

Originally celebrated on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk, Life Day has spread throughout the galaxy. Those who wish to learn more should head to Vreni Island (Corellia), the Lake Retreat (Naboo) or Anchorhead (Tatooine) where you'll find a friendly Wookiee in a red robe who will tell you more about the holiday. Beings that have been part of the community for more than thirty days will be given a Life Day gift to honor this special time.
