May 25, 2007

The second reason May 25th holds special significance for me: today is the 30th anniversary of the release of Star Wars.

Think about how different the Star Wars experience was in those days. There was so much still to wonder about. Would Luke get revenge on Darth Vader for killing his father? Would Princess Leia (and our 7-year-old selves could never remember if it was LAY-uh or LEE-uh) choose Luke or Han? We all knew that Star Wars 2 would be coming soon; would it be Splinter Of The Mind’s Eye, or Han Solo at Star’s End?

And most importantly, who had the most Star Wars toys?
