May the Fourth Be With You!

It’s that time of year again! Can you believe it? May 4 marks “May the Fourth be with you”, an unofficial holiday for Star Wars fans everywhere. This is a day for celebrating all the things we love about Star Wars and there are so many wonderful ways to celebrate. You could have a movie marathon and watch all the movies, you could play your favorite Star Wars games, or go on a shopping spree for Star Wars goodies, to name a few. Major retailers like Walmart are having sales on Star Wars merchandise and you’ll find online shops like ThinkGeek doing the same.

Another great thing about May 4th is there will be tons of awesome Star Wars deals. For example, Humble Bundle has a killer deal for you today. You can save up to 77% on Star Wars titles like the complete Star Wars Collection, Star Wars X-Wing Bundle, Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection and more. Basically, every awesome Star Wars game you can think of is on here. They even have Empire at War Gold Pack and Star Wars The Force Unleashed. You can pick up a lot of these games for only a couple of dollars each. It’s definitely worth checking out if you don’t have them all already (I got most of them on a previous year’s sale for May 4th).

Everyone’s getting in on the action. In honor of May the Fourth, Jimmy re-edits footage from the Star Wars films to make the characters sing “All Star” by Smash Mouth.

So how are you celebrating May 4th?
