It’s that time again when “Star Wars” aficionados (read “geeks”) celebrate one of their favorite days of the year.
Of course it’s a take off of the famous “May the force be with you” line from the 1977 film that spawned a massive franchise.
Now known as Star Wars Day, it’s just one of the many pop culture holidays you don’t want to miss out on.
We can thank Amy Poehler for this one.
Her character Leslie Knope from the TV series “Parks and Recreation” had the brilliant idea to celebrate good girlfriends the day before Valentine’s Day.
Or as she says “Uteruses before duderuses.”
On May 10 the citizens of Springfield, the fictitious town on “The Simpsons,” drove snakes into the center of town to whack them to death.
The tradition started with the founding of the town. Lisa Simpson deplored the tradition her father, Homer, loved.
No snakes were harmed in the writing of this item.
Harry Potter’s birthday
Everyone’s favorite wizard celebrates his special day (as do his admirers) on July 31.
Mean Girls Day
On October 3 we wear pink.
Her response? “It’s October 3.”
And thus an unofficial holiday was born.
It really is for the rest of us.
The show set the date as December 23, but in keeping with the tradition of not keeping traditions, anytime during December is apparently appropriate to celebrate.
