    May the 4th be with you!



    Today is considered "Star Wars Day". May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate Star Wars culture and honor the films. It is called Star Wars Day because of the popularity of a common pun spoken on this day. Since the phrase "May the Force be with you" is a famous quote often spoken in the Star Wars films, fans commonly say "May the fourth be with you" on this day.


    Do we have any Star Wars fans out there?

    I got the idea from a post from Bongo Comics on Facebook and thought it'd be a good idea for the fans here.

    I'm in the same boat as you, Zombies. I'm a mild fan as well, I'm not head over heels for it but I don't hate it either.

    It'd be no different than one of us celebrating a Simpsons Day if there ever was one. Just let them enjoy it!

    I think star wars day is becoming too commercialized

    Fan here. I watched the Blu-Ray's for the original trilogy in honor of the day, though I found tons of inconsistencies in "Jedi".

    I acknowledged the 4th even though it's not such a big deal to me and I didn't watch any of the movies (rewatched the original trilogy a week or so ago, though). The next Star Wars day is May 25th (yes, there are apparently two SW days in May).
