Every year there is a day that always manages to sneak up on me and yet never goes uncelebrated. May 4th, Star Wars Day. When I discovered it over 3 years ago, I couldn’t believe I hadn’t known about it before. Since then I’ve written several resource posts to help people celebrate and helped my mom write a few. This year I wanted to do something different. Instead of another post like 20 Star Wars Recipes for your May 4th Celebration. I am going to tell you about our tiny celebration.
Typically I start with bigger plans, but this year I am going to just keep it simple. Awesome sugar cookies (my mom’s recipe is the best) with icing (also the best) and maybe some homemade Star Wars® themed chocolates if we have the time. And of course, we will watch a movie.
Maybe we will take the time to play our Star Wars board game and fight for the rebellion in Battlefront®. But that won’t be the important part. The important part is the memory making and bonding that will take place.
My siblings and I will spend the entire day celebrating something we all love. We will bake, watch our favorite characters fight for what they believe in and sometimes fall, wear our Star Wars shirts, and cheer each other on as we work together to win the games. That will be the important part, the part we will remember.
My brothers might not remember exactly what we do tomorrow, but they will remember the excitement and the joy we had celebrating together. They will remember the experience. They will have memories to hold onto for a very long time. And so will I.
May the 4th be With You!
