Toy stormtroopers partner with adorable dog to set up a ‘Star Wars’ Christmas tree

The dark side never stopped anyone from having a little Yuletide cheer, as Star Warsfans andbrothersKyleand PhilShearrerproved yesterday.

The two redditors won r/StarWars when they posted a set of painstaking photographs taken by Kyle in which a horde of stormtroopers (and their canine companion) lovingly assemble a Christmas tree, all while an approving Darth Vader looks on.



Not to be outdone, Phil promptly turned the whole sequence into a short film complete with Sith Lord soundtrack.

Here’s the whole Imgur gallery:

Couple Saves A Squirrel And Now It Lives In Their Christmas Tree

About a month ago, redditor carefree_dude’s wife found an injured squirrel on the side of the road twitching, most likely hit by a car.  The Poor little guy had a major head trauma and couldn’t do anything, so the family reached out to a wildlife rehabilitator.

After 6 days of medicine, Mitten, the squirrel, felt a lot better, he was able to hold food, though he still needed help drinking and couldn’t walk very well. “We are still caring for him, though he will likely never be able to be released again, wrote the redditor. “He may not be able to live a wild life, but if he continues to recover, we can help him live a good life.”

Mitten is the second squirrel the family has saved: “We would love to run a wildlife rehabilitation center some day. We are building a 5ft by 3ft by 8ft enclosure for him, which I hope to put a small living tree in.” For now, Mitten loves hanging out in the family’s Christmas tree.
