Happy Star Wars Day!

Why is today the day we celebrate one of the greatest movie franchises (along with books, games, toys, etc)?  Because it is May the 4th!  May the fourth be with you!  Get it?  If you don't, ask a Star Wars fan.

To celebrate, people have parties and movie marathons.  There's at least one couple, in Southern Maine, who are getting married today.
