May The Fourth Be With You (#StarWarsDay)

REPOSTED -- because everyone should have suggestions on how to properly celebrate May The Fourth.

Here are 35 ways to celebrate this most nerdy of days:

1. Watch Star Wars. Any one or all six will make for a great Star Wars Day! If you are one of those sad people who has lived a sheltered little life and never once seen Star Wars, make it your goal to at least watch one of the six films! If there is one of the movies you dislike more than the rest, watch that one first. It may be that you just don't give it much of a chance to impress you.

2. Tell some one that the Force will be with them... always.

3. Become a Jedi, like your father before you.

4. Use at least 3 quotes form the saga in your daily routine. For example, "I have a bad feeling about this" or, "Laugh it up, Fuzzball" or, "Impressive, most impressive."

5. Go to and read one databank entry about a character you know nothing about.

6. Do or do not, there is no try.

7. Hold a discussion with someone about Star Wars. Maybe about something in the movies that just doesn't make sense to you, or that you need clarification on.

8. Join Hyperspace, the official Star Wars fan club.

9. Destroy a Death Star. (or two)

10. Use the Force to open the door at the grocery store.

11. Hold a toy Lightsaber duel with someone.

12. Give birth to twins and name them Luke and Leia.

13. Learn to speak Huttese.

14. Go to Disneyland and ride 'Star Tours' over and over and over again.

15. Execute Order 66.

16. Buy a Star Wars action figure.

17. Build your own Protocol droid.

18. Give your sister a passionate kiss on the mouth (ok, maybe not the best way to celebrate).
