May the 4th

The unofficial holiday of an epic story that was ratified by die hard fans. A story that moved beyond time periods and is told through different lenses and through different characters. The story was later changed by a woke mouse and its copycat minions. What can be said about Star Wars Day? It’s not a religious holiday though many that celebrate this day are junkies or appear to be part of a cult. You wouldn’t know this unless you engage them in conversation to note their inexplicable loyalty and commitment to Star Wars. Unless you’ve entered a Star Wars convention or met the people that have spent a small fortune (thousands of $$) on costumes or paraphernalia you might be offended if I said it was a cult. For some Star Wars fans it is a religious cult and for others just an addiction. I honestly believe that the fandom became a cult when the majority dubbed a day to celebrate all things Star Wars as May the 4th. When you spend thousands of dollars on paraphernalia and costumes that is just a show of worship. Deeming a day to celebrate it makes your commitment to your object of worship very clear. I just loved the first six movies and played most of the Old Republic games, so today is just another day for me. For the junkies and cultists - Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you!
