May the Fourth be with you; A celebration of Star Wars

May the Fourth be with you; A celebration of Star Wars

May 4 is an unofficial holiday on which fans of George Lucas' far, far away universe celebrate Star Wars.

We bet this rescue feline that has an uncanny resemblance to the man behind the Kylo Ren mask is having an out of this world Star Wars Day, and we hope you are too. The Tonight Show joined in the fun by cutting Star Wars clips into a reasonable facsimile of "All Star", something we definitely don't need but now that it's out there, is completely necessary in our lives. I just wanted you all to keep smiles on your faces because today is not a regular day. The phrase was born back when former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher was elected on May 4, 1979 - two years after Star Wars was released. A Star Wars land, meanwhile, is coming to Disney's theme parks.

For Star Wars fans, there's nothing more rewarding than meeting the actors who played the heroes (and even the villains) that they grew up loving.

In celebration of all things Jedi and the power of the force, we chatted to Paul Loeb van Zuilenburg, longtime music lecturer, classical composer and Star Wars fan - who also happens to conduct Star Wars music for the Stellenbosch City Orchestra.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the first "Star Wars" film, Northwest Vista College will be celebrating with a free outdoor screening of "Rogue One" and activities including a Chewbacca call contest, costume contest and more.

In an interview last December with Starwars.com, Matt Martin, a member of the story group, said Lucasfilm is committed to "shared continuity across "Star Wars" storytelling in all media", calling "Rogue One" "a coming-out party of sorts" for that strategy.

Cook a "Star Wars"-themed recipe". What some may not know about is the celebrations that take place the day after on May 5th.

Several teachers at Osceola have a firm love for Star wars a few of them are Mr. Sadler, Mr. Yarbrough, Mr. Martens and Mr. Ziesenheim.
