May the Fourth Be With You!


Though the saying has been around for as long as May 4 has existed on the calendar (a very long time), I only became aware of it being celebrated as Star Wars Day a few years ago. It sounds so close to "may the force be with you," so why not? It's nice to have a sort of official Star Wars holiday that isn't Life Day.

So, what does one do to celebrate a Star Wars holiday? First of all, wear your favorite Star Wars t-shirt. If you've ever considered wearing a Jedi robe to work, this is the day to do it. Then send one of these very cool May the 4th e-cards to friends. After you do that, the most obvious answer is to have a marathon. Make Star Wars cookies, have friends over, have some toy lightsaber duels - you know, just another Friday night. Don't forget to make this Severed Wampa Arm cake!

You could also make a weekend of it. I think it's best celebrated with others, so make some Star Wars crafts with friends, build Lego kits, have an action figure customizing party, make Star Wars shoes. The possibilities go on and on. You could also take the day to go through your Star Wars toys and comics and make a donation to a local children's hospital.

Some websites and organizations are marking the day with giveaways. For example, Rancho Obi-Wan is giving away memberships! All you have to do is sign up to be on their mailing list (on the right side of the page) to get a chance to win one of four memberships. And trust me, a membership to this place is a big deal. In fact, purchasing a membership or giving it as a gift to someone else would be one heck of a way to commemorate Star Wars day.

Some of my favorite deals for May Fourth!
  • Her Universe is releasing at least three new Star Wars shirt designs! They're available for 20% off from HotTopic.com.
  • Amazon has the saga on Blu-ray for $78.99 - that's 44% off. They're also offering Star Wars Gold Box deals throughout the day.
  • Epic Ink Books is offering a 25% discount Star Wars: The Blueprints.
  • LEGO is offering free shipping and a free exclusive mini-fig with orders over $75 and an R2-D2 poster with any LEGO Star Wars order.
  • TFAW has a killer sale on Star Wars comics, graphic novels, toys, and merchandise (like lightsaber umbrellas and lamps!)
  • WeLoveFine is offering 30% off Star Wars tees.
  • Junk Food Clothing is offering 30% off Star Wars tees.
StarWars.com has a comprehensive list of deals being offered across the web for the day, including Barnes & Noble, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, and more.

It's becoming a date for announcements of an official nature, too. Last year's May 4th brought details about the then upcoming Star Wars on Blu-ray release. This year... well, maybe we'll get some more announcements about Celebration VI?

Regardless of anything else, it's a day to show and share your love for Star Wars. May the Fourth Be With You!

    Hello to you all,i want to use this time to thank Dr. Trust for what he has done for me last week here ,my names are Isabella Molly from Australia,i wanna tell you that me and my husband were together for three years without any trouble nor quarrel, we gave birth to a daughter during this three years and we were good until my husband started having affairs with his co-worker and then him started staying away from home all night and days and he was no longer the man i use to know,him later filed for divorce and ask me and my daughter to go out of his life , at this time i was carrying another child inside of me and now i was so frustrated and was in pains i tried telling him what him was doing was not right , but him wouldn't listen to any body,so i went to my mum house with my child and one day as i was browsing i came a cross a story about this Dr.Trust how he help a lady called Kimberly and i was touched with the story because it was almost same as mine, so i decided to contact him for help at first i was so so scared because many other spell casters that i have tried earlier took me for fool and went away with my money,but due to the line of the story i read about him and gave him my last try with faith and i told him all that has happened. He assure me that i will see result within two days and i told him that many others has told me this before, but nothing work out,him made a statement that many are called but few were chosen. which means him is not like others,so i said okay that was how him finally make my man comes back and it was like a surprise to me and today am a happy person.
