May the 4th be with you. was created by Snowy Aftermath
I was shocked to find that May the 4th isn't an "official" Jedi holiday, as it's been celebrated by my nerdy friends and I for several years now. Couldn't we make that happen somehow? It could be a fun lighthearted thing, like Groundhog Day or April Fools or Fat Tuesday.

It's basically just a reason to run around being silly with lightsabers and wish people well, but it could also be like an awareness day :)

I'm gonna be the typical chips pisser here but to be honest, associating ourselves with gimmicks like May 4th, dressing up and lightsabers does far, far more harm than good. In most people's minds this is roleplay, not a serious thing.

Sorry. It's just the longer you spend with it, and the reactions to it, the further you want to push away from all this stuff. We have a perception image and we need to be mindful of that, it seems to me.

Bah, you party pooper! (But yeah... I've already started cringing when people quote from the movies.)

May the 4th only works for English speakers, and I think clergy cancelled all the feast days and replaced them with monthly themes. May 4 wasn't ever a totjo feast day although I think may 25 might have been one?
