Happy Star Wars Day!

 May the 4th be with you! Beware of the 5th. Not if anything to comment about it I have!…

It’s Star Wars Day – every 4th of May ever since Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain’s first female Prime Minister on May 4, 1979 and her party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News that said “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Festivities included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show; a costume contest with celebrity judges; and the web’s best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. The second annual edition is scheduled to take place on Friday, May 4, 2012.

I go nuts for genealogy so I really love this Star Wars Family Tree that I found online in a Google search…

Here’s more info on Star Wars Day at Wikipedia and Wookieepedia.
