The day is here! It’s time to celebrate Star Wars in all of its glory!
May the 4th has been commandeered by Star Wars unofficially for a while now, with Disney going so far as actually celebrating it at Disneyworld. And this is great! If anything, I want more calendar days dedicated to pop culture stuff. I want a Freddie Kruger day! An Elvira Day! Or a Care Bears Day! I want a glut of made up holidays at all cost.
Having gotten that out of my system I’ll share my first time watching Star Wars. I was at Blockbuster (I know, I’m old), picking up random movies, and came across Star Wars: A New Hope. I convinced my babysitter to let me watch it and I’ll never forget what happened next. I put the video cassette (I still know, old) in the VCR, watched it from beginning to end, and took the movie out. I didn’t move one inch the entire time. It was like I was in a trance and stepped out when the credits began to roll. Of course, it has been true love ever since and I bet it was the same for quite a few other people as well!
Below are a bunch of “best of” videos from Star Wars to help you and your friends celebrate. Enjoy, and please share your favorite Star Wars moments and stories in the comments.
And of course … may the force be with you!
