Happy Star Wars Day Everyone!!!
Today is a really cool day for all Star Wars fans. Its the day of the year where we really show why Star Wars is cool. If only I could get my wife to see it. She hates it and kind of leaves me to explore the galaxy far far away.
I was not around when the original Star Wars came out but I do remember watching it with my dad at home and when it was released in the theaters before the prequel trilogy came out. It became a tradition to see the newest movie with my dad and we even would sit and watch the originals ever now and then on weekends. Its hard to believe the original Star Wars is going to be 40 years old this year.
Since my dad passed away I have tried to keep the Star Wars love alive. I went and saw The Force Awakens when it came out by myself but it was like he was sitting beside me. He would have loved the new trilogy. I know he would be really excited for The Last Jedi. I must say that Disney was the best thing that ever happened to the Star Wars franchise.
Of course this year brought us to not so good news with the death of Carrie Fisher. She was a culture icon and was very funny both on and off screen according to those who knew her. She was a real joy to watch.
I have incorporated Star Wars in everything. I drink coffee out of my stormtrooper mug, wear my droid socks, and I even decorated my car in some cool Star Wars decals.
The coolest thing I did this year was go to Disney World and go to Hollywood Studios and visit some of the cool Star Wars stuff they had there.
The year I have decided that for the year 2018 I will be participating in The Star Wars- The Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend in Disney World! Super excited to not only do my first Disney race, but to running with other Star Wars fans. Its going to be a good time.
I hope every Star Wars fan enjoys the day and always… Let the force be with you!
