Happy Star Wars Day!

Star Wars Day

Happy Star Wars Day fellow geeks! This unofficial holiday is one of the most fun. Why? It’s the day you can wander around saying “May the Fourth be with you!”

Get it? May 4th: “May the Fourth” … eh, it’ll come to you.

Along with the bad pun, you can repeat as many Star Wars quotes as you desire today. Movie marathons are known to pop up all over the place today, so check with your local theater. You might get lucky!

“It’s nice that this particular date seems to observe and celebrate the power of the Force, and we’re thrilled that Star Wars fans continue to find new ways to connect with a galaxy far, far away,” said a Lucasfilm spokesperson to the NY Daily News. “Of course, regardless of the date, the Force will be with us…always.”

Star Wars has six live action films which have grossed $3.6 billion worldwide, not including DVD sales, toys, games, and other products. There’s also the computer-animated movie The Clone Wars, along with the television series it spawned.

JibJab, in order to celebrate Star Wars Day, has launched a feature where you can add your (or your friends’) picture and star in Star Wars. You can put on your own show here.

Have fun celebrating Star Wars Day! Talk like Yoda you will!
