Awesome Ideas for Having a Star Wars Day Party & More

Star Wars Day is May 4th! May the fourth be with you!

(Get it? May the Force be with You / May the Fourth...)

Also called Luke Skywalker Day, May 4th is the perfect time to add a little whimsy, some hardcore geekness, or some great movie time to your life. Jump on board and celebrate all things Star Wars with me!

Pull out that lightsaber (we all know you have one), bake a Star Wars cake for your friends and/or coworkers, plan a Star Wars dinner party -- The sky's the limit!

We may not get this unofficial holiday off work, but let's celebrate the day in epic Star Wars style!

Things to Do to Celebrate Star Wars Day

May 4th - May the Fourth Be With You

Ideas for Anyone

* Watch the movies!!!!

* Bake & decorate an cool Star Wars cake for home, school, office, friends, whatever. For over the top incredible cakes, you HAVE TO see the Star Wars Birthday Cakes page linked on this page. You may not believe your eyes!

* Print out and color some free Star Wars Coloring Pages (just search Google)

* Get all that fun Star Wars stuff out of those boxes and drawers and PLAY

* Have a Yoda Look-Alike contest

* Have a Wookiee Sound-Alike contest

Ideas with Kids

* Gather some little Jedi in training and make toilet paper roll lightsabers.

* Bend twist balloons into lightsaber shapes

* Watch some Clone Wars

* Decorate cupcakes, cookies, anything!

* Dress up!

Ideas for Teens and Grown-ups

* Serve up a simple or mega-amazing dinner based on Star Wars. Think up some cool Star Wars names for the food (Yoda Yummies, Wookiee Cookies, Skywalker Ranch Chicken, Ewok Forest Greens, Tauntaun Guts [spaghetti - ewww], Juri Juice).

* Make Juri Juice - Juri juice is an inebriating, addictive drink favored by Kabe and available at the Mos Eisley Cantina in various collectible jars. I am sure the recipe is posted somewhere online. I am not responsible for your actions if you drink this.

* Play Star Wars Monopoly (it's my favorite form of this awesome board game!)

* (My son says "Let your dad cut off your hand." - Not recommended by me)

* Design a Mos Eisley Cantina, turn up some Star Wars soundtrack music, and invite Star Wars friends. Costumes are always a plus!

May the Force Be With You

Yep - this is a cake! Wow. I don't think I could ever make something this amazing, but I might try decorating a sheet cake or some cupcakes for Star Wars Day. Maybe there is a great cake decorator near you!

      Star Wars is one of those things where there has to be something wrong with you if you don't like it.

      Awesome! I have accidentally discovered this page with less than 6 hours to go until the magic day begins! That's it! I am getting the light sabers out tomorrow for a battle with my son.

      I loved the first film but never got into the whole fan-cult thing. But I have family members who can probably quote the entire script of anything to do with Star Wars.
