17 of the best things in the galaxy for you to snag on Star Wars Day — aka May the 4th
The best day of the year is finally here: Happy Star Wars Day! After an inexplicably long and terrible winter — like, Hoth bad — May the 4th has returned in all its Star Wars glory.
Today’s the day we sneak our favorite Star Wars lines into all our conversations, marathon the nine already-released films, reminisce on the best and decidedly worst moments from the series, and debate for hours about the future of the franchise. Fine, we do this every day but on May the 4th, everyone gets in on the action. But this year, May the 4th isn’t only a celebration of Star Wars, it’s also the perfect time to really start getting hyped for Solo: A Star Wars Story, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks on May 25th.
In its 41st year, the Star Wars franchise is showing no signs of slowing down — thank God — and is growing bigger and faster than ever. Naturally, that means an endless supply of merchandise. From Star Wars waffle makers and bedspreads to T-shirts and shoes, we’ll never run out of ways to integrate Star Wars into our everyday lives.
