Tuesday is officially May 4th, and we all know what that means.
It’s the one day of the year when the internet comes together to celebrate the “Star Wars” saga, which means it’s one of the best days of the year. (REVIEW: ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Ends With The Possible Deaths Of Multiple Characters)
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a huge “Star Wars” junkie.In fact, the original trilogy were the first movies I ever remember owning.
I got them as a present as a little kid. They came in a black box on VHS tapes, and I thought it was just about the coolest thing ever. In fact, I still do.
Way back in the day when I was a little kid, all the kids had the collapsable lightsabers and we used to beat the living hell out of each other with them.
Now, kids sit around and play video games, but that’s a conversation for a different time.
“Star Wars” is without a doubt one of the coolest series ever created. Even though we can admit that the prequels were terrible outside of “Episode III,” the original trilogy will forever be remembered as iconic.
It’s an adventure saga that takes place in space with planets that blow up, many different alien species, swords made of lasers that cut through anything and individuals with the ability to use the force.
Say whatever you want about George Lucas, but the man was a damn genius.
Now, on this day, we take time to enjoy “Star Wars” and the impact the series had on millions and millions of people.
The first film dropped more than 40 years ago. Yet, it’s bigger than ever, and we’re not slowing down. Disney now has “The Mandalorian” and several more series on the way.
The franchise lives on!
Let us know your favorite “Star Wars” moment in the comments below, and happy viewing!

Bologna prodigy Wisdom Amey makes historic Serie A debut aged just 15 to become youngest ever in Italian football
IT was the briefest of cameos, but gave us a look into the future.
With time running down, Sinisa Mihajlovic looked towards his Bologna bench as his side trailed Genoa 2-0 at home to offer fans hope for times ahead.6Wisdom Amey, 15, has become Serie A's youngest ever debutant against GenoaCredit: EPA
Wisdom Amey was introduced to proceedings in the 89th minute to make his debut at just 15 years and 274 days.
The talented centre back is said to be one for the future, so this fleeting appearance was merely just a runout for experience.
But the defender, who is now Serie A's youngest ever debutant, showed no fear as he got to grips with the rigours of top flight Italian football.
And this is just the beginning.RECORD BREAKER
Two weeks before his record breaking Bologna bow, Amey wrote on Instagram, 'Believe in it, do it, make it real'.
And he certainly did all of those things when he entered the fray for Takehiro Tomiyasu with a minute plus four minutes of stoppage time.
Amey, who doesn't turn 16 until August, surpassed former Roma player Amadeo Amadei from 1937 and former Genoa player Pietro Pellegri, who had equalled the record in 2016 to become youngest ever Serie A player.
"He responded well, I’m happy with my choice," Mihajlovic told Sky Sport Italia after the game.
And he was joined by 16-year-old midfielder Kacper Urbanski, who was also given his chance as the Serbian manager looked towards next season.6Amey appeared alongside Kacper Urbanski, 16, who also made his Bologna debutCredit: Rex 6Focused Amey showed no fear as he entered the fray in the 89th minuteCredit: Rex
“Amey and Urbanski entered very well, they weren’t afraid, I’m happy to have thrown them into the fray,” Mihajlovic added.COMMANDING PRESENCE
Immediately, Bologna fans would've been struck by his hulking presence.
Standing at 6ft 1in, Amey is no shrinking violet on the pitch.
And former Watford coach Luca Vigiani has sung his praises to Mihajlovic - insisting the youngster's size and athleticism means he is already first team ready.
Amey has starred this campaign for Bologna's U17 team under Vigiani.
"He is a centre-back with considerable physical power," Vigiani said.
"He has good technique and concentration. We already consider him an adult."6Standing at 6ft 1in tall, Amey is a commanding presence at the backCredit: Alamy 6Amey has been a standout for Bologna's U17 team this campaign 6Bologna boss Sinisa Mihajlovic, who handed Amey his debut, has been credited for giving AC Milan's brilliant keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma a chanceCredit: Getty JOURNEY TO BOLOGNA
Amey was born in Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza, to a Togolese father and Nigerian mother in 2005.
His journey to Bologna hasn't been straight-forward.
First, he began his youth career with Serie C side Bassano Virtus, before moving to Vicenza in 2018.Most read in FootballLOG-GING OUTLogan Paul vows to beat Floyd Mayweather and RETIRE without a rematch'BLESSINGS'Canelo's coach sends message to Billy Joe Saunders after Brit has surgeryExclusiveon the ropesTyson Fury does his best to avoid female fans after girls slathered him in oil'JUST NO'White refuses to work with Jake Paul after UFC's Usman issues threat to YouTuberCHELSEA RATINGSJorginho shambolic in defeat but Silva shows why he deserves new Blues dealPAIGE TURNERPaige VanZant wows in a pink bikini amid rumors she'll fight Rachael Ostovich
A year later he moved to Bologna, where he is now thriving.
Famously, Mihajlovic gave a debut to goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma when he was just 16 during his stint at AC Milan in 2015-16, and has been praised for giving youth a chance.
