Thoughtful Thursday 5/5/2016

Yesterday was Star Wars day with "May the 4th be with you" - a play on "May the Force be with you".  Since 2012, today has been Revenge of the 5th - for Revenge of the Sith - incorporating everything Star Wars beyond the original trilogy.

Here is a quick blurb about today's origins:

"Dallas-based Medina and his friend Eric Shirey created in 2012 as a reaction to Star Wars Day. “My nephew cracked a joke on May 4 about Revenge of the Fifth,” Medina told Inverse over the phone. The new phrase was a riff on Revenge of the Sith, the title of George Lucas’ third prequel episode of the saga, and was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek companion to Star Wars Day. It honored the movies just like the fourth, but instead expanded the celebration to two days and was meant to highlight the kitschier side of Star Wars."  If you'd like to read more, here is the whole article.

Party goers believe May 6th is the Revenge of the 5th in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.  What's your take?
