Happy “Star Wars Day”

(See my other Star Wars posts) – It is May the 4th and Star Wars Day again (you know, “may the 4th (force) be with you”). What is Star Wars Day?:

The first organized Star Wars Day took place in Toronto back in 2011. The event included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show, a costume contest, and a showing of fan-made tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes. In late 2012, Disney purchased Lucasfilm and has officially observed the holiday at Disneyland and Walt Disney World ever since.

How can you celebrate? The Suggestions per the https://nationaltoday.com/ site include:

  1. Start counting down – “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge,” the 14-acre Disney theme park expansion, will open at Southern California’s Disneyland Resort on May 31. A second version of the “Star Wars” land will open three months later at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida.
  2. Host a viewing party – Invite friends over for a movie marathon. (Whether you take them through the behind-the-scenes footage or not is up to you.) Hang decorations and prepare nerd-tastic snacks for the occasion.
  3. Dress-up day – Costumes aren’t just for Halloween. Head out in your finest rebel attire, or a themed T-shirt if that’s more your comfort zone.

I won’t be counting down or hosting/participating in a viewing party. I do have a Star Wars shirt and hat. I will be wearing both today. How are you going to celebrate?
