Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you all … get it Ireland?!
Whether or not you approved of the pony-tailed Liam Neeson in Star Wars The Old Republic, you gotta hand it to fans of the epic film series for hijacking a random day on the calendar and, with the aid of a clever play on words, turning it into a holiday celebrating all things pertaining to the George Lucas movies and their fandom.
May the Force be with you all on this 4th day of May.
Not that you need a reason the other 364 days a year, but whether you’re a Jedi-level Star Wars nerd or a mere padawan, today offers a terrific opportunity to discuss the incredible film franchise and unrivaled pop culture phenomenon.
Or the second trilogy that came out years later, for that matter.
So raise your glass and give it up for Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, Vader and the intergalactic gang who continues to thrill us decades after Lucas created them.
