Jedi Holiday Commitee was created by Cygnus
Rich has given me the go ahead to form a Jedi Holiday Committee. The Purpose of this Committee is to discuss Possible Holidays that can be adopted, any who want to be on the committee are welcome, including Sith, I'd Like to discuss adopting several universal Jedi Holidays as well as days for the individual rites

I think this means things like Universal Jedi Day (25th may)

Also potential others may include Joseph Cambells B'Day, same for watts... this kind of think, like a list of days to celebrate as part of jediism

id like to also put forward armistice day, and June 6th - D-Day to remeber all those who died for a belief in global peace.

So keep the ideas coming and sensible

Br. John's Birthday, June 4th, is already an international holiday and the anniversary of The Order's incorporation is December 25th so those are covered.

I think the prospects of this is good, but it should look at the International List of Holidays world wide from countries and religions to see what Jedi would want to have. We wouldn't want to leave someones culture or religion out!!

Actually I had Sol Invictus in mind when I picked December 25th and you can always celebrate that instead.B)

I'm diggin' the idea. How would this committee work? I also agree it should encompass other cultures and religions, Because that is what makes this Order so great. Maybe something that is universal and would honor everyone's background.

Well, let's see... I'd recommend that May itself be a sort of \"Jedi Holy Month,\" as all six Star Wars films were released in May. On top of this (and I hope nobody jumps at me about this), George Lucas' birthday is in May.

It's also the fifth month, and as we have five rites (for now), that could count as something too.

I wish I had more, but all I can think of the equinoxes and solstices, which could signify the balance the Force brings to the world itself.

Yoda: "Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try."

Mr. Miyagi: "Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later, [makes squish gesture] get squish just like grape."

i like the idea of a jedi holiday.
But we should make sure it's a VERY important date, and something of definate signifigance for the jedi, or it would seem like a festivus type of thing and be very hard sell.
of course festivus has become a holiday and ice cream so maybe i'm paranoid. lol

what things would occur on the holiday? maybe some sort of special meal? chocolate is always something that needs to be involved in a holiday...
