Cue the 'Imperial March', here is another 'May The Fourth Be With You' post. Wrote one earlier here and I must admit that I'm a big Star Wars fan. I watched 'Episode VI: Return of the Jedi' when I was a child with my mom. Seeing Darth Vader and Boba Fett made me see the Dark Side in a different light. I had at that moment gave my loyalty to the Sith Order and the bounty hunters. Of course, fast forward to a couple years and with me watching the rest of the original trilogy and the prequels and I have now embraced the values of the Jedi Council as well. So if ever there is a questionnaire asking if I was Jedi or Sith, I'd write down 'It's complicated!'. LOL! Star Wars Day unofficially started on the day when Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister. The London Evening News had a banner that read, 'May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie.' and the rest as they say is history. It wasn't until 2011 when the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Canada. Star Wars' fans from around the world have celebrated Star Wars Day their own unique and fun ways. So yeah, I celebrated mine by watching the original trilogy and wearing some my Star Wars merchandise. Wish I can wear all at the same time!. So I ended up wearing my StarWars x Vans collaboration shoes. It features the iconic art work for the movie poster of Episode III: A New Hope. I also wore my shirt featuring the most dysfunctional father and son tandem in the galaxy, Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker. I will also listen to music by the hip hop group Jedi Mind Tricks and Red 5. Red 5 was the call sign of Luke Skywalker in the Episode III. How did everyone here in myLot celebrate Star Wars Day? May the fourth be with you!!!

I didn't know there's such Star Wars Day. May 4 is really a good day for it. It's good to know that. I think I have only watched the Star Wars episode 1, but not the rest. I like it, but just didn't find time to watch the rest, even the old ones. May the force be with you all the time!
