  6. May The 4th Be With You!

    May The 4th Be With You!
    We’re still riding on the buzz of Star Wars “The Force Unleashed” and now we’re excitedly anticipating Rogue One: A Star May The 4thWars Story! With all the hype, this is sure to be the biggest May the 4th yet! May The 4th This is a date in the diary of every Star Wars fan across the globe. While Star Wars Day isn’t considered an official holiday it is celebrated worldwide by the adoring fans of the Star Wars films. The date was an obvious choice due to the pun of “May the force be with you”. Not only the 4th, but the 5th of May became part of the celebration with “Revenge of the 5th” a play on words of the Star Wars movie “Revenge of the Sith”. May is special for many reasons for die hard Star Wars fans as it is also George Lucas’ birthday on May 14th and also because all of the original 6 live action films were released in may. Why Lucas Film did not pioneer Star Wars Day, they were certainly happy to embrace it and join their fans in celebrating it each year. In late 2012 Disney bought Lucas Film, including the rights to Star Wars and since has held Star Wars themed events at their parks during the month of May. After the huge success of The Force Unleashed we can all breathe easy that the franchise is in good hands. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this household name in Sci-Fi greatness.

Who Was St George? The legend of St George and the dragon is over one thousand years old and tells of a small town in Libya where a dragon decided to take nest. Each time the villagers went to get water from the nearby spring they would disturb the dragon so they gave it sheep to eat as a distraction. When the village was out of sheep they decided that the only other way to calm the dragon was to sacrifice a girl. The Princess whose name was drawn was sent to be sacrificed, but as she neared the dragons keep, a knight of the Crusade flashed by on his white steed. St George dismounted and drew his sword to fend off the beast and after moments the dragon was slain, saving the Princess’ life. Because of this great and noble act, the village converted to Christianity. Continue reading →

    Everyone has a joker in their family or group of friends, but don’t let them get the better for you this April Fool's Day! Here at April Fool's DayHollywood we have a huge range of jokes and tricks to help you out smart your prankster for once! April Fool's Day The origins of this light hearted day are largely unknown with plenty of weird and wonderful speculations. The main theory is that it came about when Pope Gregory XIII ordered the change from the Jullian calendar to the Georgian calendar meaning New Year would be celebrated on the 1st January rather than 1st April. Many countries did not want to convert and continued to celebrate New Year on what became April Fool's Day. While it has never been confirmed it is a lot more believable than the allowing of a jester to be king for a day Continue reading →

Easter Tradition With a whole host of religions and belief systems flooding into the UK we appreciate that some of the traditions of Easter have been diluted, but that doesn’t mean we should drop it all together. For Christians, it is a celebration of Jesus’ resurrection after he was put to death for our sins. Schools and churches will often hold plays and Bible readings or even parades especially on Easter Sunday. Egg hunts are another tradition where chocolate or decorative eggs are hidden and children have to find them all. Continue reading →
