Today is Star Wars Day!
Star Wars Day is an unofficial holiday that started in 2011, but popularity has quickly spread. Star Wars fans all over the world celebrate with fun Star Wars Day activities such as parties, movie marathons, games, or even just by saying “May the fourth be with you” to each other. Some retailers even offer special deals like 20% off everything and a free Star Wars pin at ThinkGeek!
