It is that time again, when the calendar switches out of April, to begin our month of Star Wars love! We like to proclaim the whole month of May is a time to celebrate Star Wars, as it holds not only the May the 4th holiday, but anniversaries for most of the films as well.
This year we are starting our holiday celebrations on Monday and will continue to celebrate the Saga through Wednesday! There are those who turn up their nose at the fan-originated holiday which has now become a staple for retailers and Disney/Lucasfilm but we love any chance to pay love and respect to the franchise that has brought us some much joy over the past four decades. Although we will still maintain that “Star Wars Day” is and will always be May 25th but that also means twice the celebrations in May!
Here’s how we will be celebrating this year’s May the 4th Be with You Day!
