    May the 4th Be With You

    Happy Star Wars Day!!

    How many of us even knew there was even such a thing as Star Wars Day? Well there is indeed a Star Wars day, May 4th, and considering it’s so close to Cinco De Mayo, perhaps it’s a big party day for geeks.

    Had I known the date, maybe I would have made plans to celebrate it myself.

    We obviously can’t change Memorial Day to celebrate one of the biggest sci-fi movies in history, but that should really be a day to celebrate Star Wars, because that was the release date. It was originally considered the worst day of the year to release a movie, but when Star Wars came out and broke all records, Fox decided to release Alien on the same day two years later. Now Memorial Day is one of the most important dates for releasing a blockbuster, thanks to Star Wars.

    I am so glad you posted this, Sassenach, because many people do not remember that Memorial Day wasn't always a blockbuster movie opening weekend ! And celebrating SW anything is just plain terrific with or without Cinco de Mayo celebrations too. I good friend of mine worked for Industrial Light & Magic for several years and has some great George Lucas stories he shares once in a while.

    Guess I will put this on my calendar to celebrate next year too...
