When it comes to Baby Yoda fandom, the force is strong even among those who have only seen him in action in meme form.

Though he is technically 50 years old, Baby Yoda (or “The Child,” as he’s officially referred to on the show) made his buzzy debut on the new Disney+ series The Mandalorian. He’s in danger thanks to the bounty hunters who want to take him out, but luckily the powerful creature can use the Force — and make some mischief, too.

While his plot points may be complicated, Baby Yoda appreciation is easy. In fact, there’s not a ton of Star Wars knowledge necessary if you want to fall headfirst into Baby Yoda “season.” The big talking point is that this guy is one cute, teeny tiny 50-year-old. Look no further than him whipping around in an egg bassinet and how he makes eyes at his adoring fans. All one needs is the love for an adorable creature who can use the Force and has disproportionate ears. Who wouldn’t be down to jump on that spaceship bandwagon?

Despite Baby Yoda fever, the toys may not be out this year. But fear not. There is fan art, pie art and Baby Yoda memes to engage you. Here, we assemble the best ways to participate with ten suggestions for a Baby Yoda celebration. Enjoy the festivities. A very joyous Baby Yoda holiday season to you all. To the list of Baby Yoda celebration suggestions we go!
