It's Star Wars Day and Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo

Today is May 4th or, "May the fourth be with you," as some say because it's an unofficial-ish Star Wars Day! I add that, "ish," because it started out more as a jokey pun on, "May the force be with you." Now, big corporations have gotten involved in celebrating/profiting from the holiday because if there is a dollar to be made somebody's gonna try and make it. Speaking of holidays that have grown into a big corporate money-maker, Cinco De Mayo is tomorrow too! It is a day in honor of when Mexico won a big battle against France in the 1800s and by all accounts I've read online, is actually a bigger holiday in America than Mexico because--hey, an excuse to binge drink! Even if both days are used more as an excuse to buy stuff or drink they still are fun little holidays. Watch a Star Wars flick/show today and celebrate Cinco De Mayo safely tomorrow, I say. Oh, and as a post in the near future will discuss, something big occurs on May 6th too--especially if you like free comics--but more on that later on.
