Not quite sure it counts; the celebration is more over the fact that the Death Star itself (a planet-destroying superweapon) is gone, not its crew members.
* In ''Film/ANewHope'', after Luke has just singlehandedly slaughtered the entire crew of the Death Star by blowing it up, Han cheers "Great shot, kid! That was one in a million!"

* At the end of ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', universe-wide celebrations begin as soon as the Death Star explodes. On Coruscant, unfortunately, the EU indicated that the celebrations didn't last long before Imperial troops cracked down on them.

* OlderThanRadio: In the original novella for ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'', there is a scene where a young couple is saved from financial ruin by Scrooge's death. Since the man only needed a few more days to secure needed funds to pay off Scrooge, days which "old" Scrooge would most likely not grant, the "float time" to when the debt is transferred to its new owner gives the couple financial security, presumably for the rest of their life. The young bride even mentions that to feel joy at another's death should be wrong, but she couldn't help it. (This scene is not usually included in filmed versions of the story.)
