    We thought that we’d put together in one place all of the fun stuff going on today around the web about Star Wars Day into one quick guide.

    So what is Star Wars Day? According to Wookieepedia (yes, apparently that’s a real website):

    May 4 is often known as “Star Wars Day”. It is jokingly said: “May the 4th be with you”, in reference to the popular phrase in Star Wars: “May the Force be with you.”.

    Typical festivities consist of inviting fellow Star Wars-obsessed friends to stay over, and then watching the series in succession. Lots of snacks, bring lightsabers and Star Wars-themed toys. Lightsaber fights in the early morning hours optional.

    TomTom announces “Star Wars Voices” interestingly on the same day that Nokia’s Ovi Maps launches “Own Voice“.
