Today is the day! Big, big day! A day, where we celebrate a long time ago. In a galaxy far, far away. Happy Star Wars Day friends! I know, I'm pretty excited about it. Star Wars is my favorite film franchise. I think it's pretty cool that the franchise is relevant once again. My daughter and I have bonded over this franchise. When she sees something with a "Star Wars" logo on it, she points it out or she thinks of me right away.

The Star Wars franchise began on May 25th, 1977. If you do the math, that's 40 years. Now, I was only a year old when we first saw the magical words that have started off every Star Wars film, and there have been 7 so far with number 8 coming later this year, and one "story," and like 5 TV shows. Oh, and don't forget about the cheesy made-for-tv Christmas special.

I'm willing to bet George Lucas never thought Star Wars would turn in to the pop-culture phenomenon it is. Everything you need to know about life, you can learn from a Star Wars movie.  Learn more about Star Wars here.
