May the Fourth Be With You!

 

It’s kind of difficult to work at a tech company and not know what a special day May the 4th is. It’s that one day a year when we greet people by saying, “May the 4th be with you” and honor all things Star Wars. It’s a very important day.

And this year, it’s especially awesome: In a few weeks on May 25th, 2017, we’ll celebrate the 40th anniversary of the release of that very first movie that became a phenomenon. The same movie that led to a multi-billion dollar industry and sheer entertainment for millions of fans spanning many generations.

So, how do people celebrate? Some have get-togethers, dress in costumes, and eat Wookie cookies. Others host binge watching parties. Restaurants and bars certainly get in on the action, while the New York Philharmonic is selling advanced tickets today for their Star Wars Film Concert Series.

And then there’s a news station in Denver that really went all out.

Head on over to our Facebook page and tell us how you plan to celebrate!
