The next two days are a celebration of all things Star Wars. Dust off your LARPing gear, polish your card sleeves, and prepare to expand your universe.
Today, let’s revel in all things light side. Bath in the glow of blue and green lightsabers (and a single purple one). Maybe debate the merits [or writing] of the movies.
Let your inner nerd become your external geek.
But, maybe you’re not convinced, you’re not familiar with the reference (or the internet), or you just don’t like Star Wars (those people don’t exist).
It’s a sad fact, however, that some people actually prefer the dark side. They think that The Empire Strikes Back is a better movie than Return of the Jedi.
And that’s okay…they can have their own day, too. Tomorrow.
Whether you enjoy the light side or the dark, you have to admit that there’s been an awakening in popularity [or at least, a lessening of the stigma surrounding loving] Star Wars and all the awesomeness it entails.
So, dust off your old Lucas Arts video games, have a movie marathon, or just wander around town in dark robes.
I’m still hoping to see some of my favorite legends will make the leap to canon. If Thrawn can do it, there’s hope for Kyle Katarn, Mara Jade, and/or Tycho Celchu.
May the 4th be with you. And, if I don’t see you tomorrow, enjoy the revenge of the 5th.
