May the Fourth Be With You

Today is Star Wars Day. According to the online resource Wookieepedia, celebrating fans host parties featuring movie marathons, Star Wars-themed toys, the occasional light-saber duel, and movie-quote exchanges on Twitter. Garrison Keillor offers these suggestions for today, “You could also celebrate by reading one of the many Star Wars-related novels, playing a video game, or gazing at your collection of action figures in their original packaging.” Keillor quotes an Lucas Film insider, “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.”

 May the Fourth be with you.
