"It's not Christmas without Chewbacca!" - Glee

With those magical words, growled to Artie (Kevin McHale) in a dream, the perfect recipe for a pop culture nerd Christmas collision was born.

Mix one part Star Wars epic icon with a handful of hot Glee guys and prepare to melt. No artificial sweetener necessary.

Out star Chris Colfer (above) and actor Harry Shum Jr. (below) couldn't resist grabbing a personal pic, and a squeeze, from the hairy, humble intergalactic warrior.

The campy, sci-fi holiday treat snuck into last week's holiday special episode, directed by star Matthew Morrison.
