The powers that be at Lucasfilm certainly have plenty of activities planned for May the 4th (as in "May the 4th be with you") this year, including e-cards, an online marathon of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" (which airs on Cartoon Network, a Time Warner company like CNN) and big announcements about August's "Star Wars" Celebration VI.
But May the 4th began as a fan celebration of all things from a galaxy far, far away, so may we suggest another part of your observance of this big day, especially for the ladies (assuming you're not in Toronto for their massive event): Why not end the day with a "Star Wars" shoe party?
That's just what geek blogger Amy Ratcliffe recently did in her home in North Hollywood, California, (though she opened it up to comic book, "Game of Thrones" and "Doctor Who"-inspired shoes, as well).
Ratcliffe spoke to CNN Geek Out about how she pulled it off:
It takes one to know one. When it comes to topics of interest to nerds, geeks, and superfans, we know how true that is. Geek Out! features stories from a nerd's perspective that you can still share with your "normal" friends and family.
