Hello everyone!

I hope you enjoyed your Golden Week holiday. There are many special days in Golden Week: Showa Day, Green Day, Children’s Day… but there is one more day that is not on the calendar. May 4th is Star Wars day! On this day fans around the world celebrate the movies that have been popular for more than 40 years. Why is May 4th Star Wars Day?

Well, the one of the most famous lines in Star Wars is the Jedi greeting:

May the force be with you.

Now, say the date:

May the fourth

Can you hear how similar it is? Anyway, part of Golden Week is relaxing with family, eating some good food, and refreshing ourselves after a busy school festival. One great way to do that is by eating some popcorn and enjoying a movie. Next Golden Week, when you look at the calendar, rememeber that on May 4th, the force is with you.

Two weeks until mid-term tests, do your best!
