Monday is May the Fourth, National Star Wars day. If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate (or a great way to look the part) look no further. Following will be a number of ways to enjoy the fourth of May – some serious, and some silly.
Watch the episodes – all of them
The classic, and probably most used, way to celebrate Star Wars day is to experience ever movie from start to finish. But this of course raises the natural question: what order to watch the movies in? Do you watch the original trilogy first, or prequel trilogy first? It’s an important decision! We recommend a different method, in this order: Episode IV, V, I, II, III, and ending with VI. You could even do it without Episode I. We explain in some greater detail here.
Hit the town with your friends in character
This won’t be for everyone – those a bit more outgoing will find it easier and probably more fun – but even those who think it strange might enjoy it. Get a group of friends, outfits, and go shopping. The mall is a great place for something like this, but there are loads of places where this would be fun, such as the park, movie theater, or museum.
A Star Wars-themed party
Easily integrate one of the above options with a Star Wars-themed gathering. Try out party games, trivia contests, a fashion show, Star Wars themed snacks, and more. It of course goes without saying that you’ll need some Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes or Max Rebo playing.
Raise funds to build a Death Star
A little door-to-dooring never hurt anybody! Whether you’re sincere about wanting a planet-smashing space station, or are just trying to get a laugh is something that both you and the people that answer the door will have to decide. Combine with costumes for the perfect outdoor activity!
There’s no end to the things that you can do to celebrate May the Fourth, just make sure you do it!
