On May the 4th, Star Wars fans will show their love for a galaxy far, far away by celebrating the franchise's annual holiday (inspired by the classic line, "May the 'force' be with you"). Here are six ways to channel your inner Jedi and make the most out of Star Wars Day, according to USA Today, even while in quarantine:

  1. Watch the movies. Again. Consider even watching them the original ways--on DVD, Blu-ray, or even VHS tapes if you still have those. 
  2. Watch the TV shows. Check out Disney+'s Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. 
  3. Eat Star Wars foods. From blue milk to porg rice balls to Millennium Falcon pizza, StarWars.com has a number of themed recipes to recreate at home. 
  4. Read the further adventures of Luke Skywalker and friends. From prose books, to e-books, to comic books, there is a ton of Star Wars literature out there.
  5. Attend virtual Star Wars events. Pick from amongst a 24-hour livestream on Twitch featuring director Kevin Smith to a live costumed workout, among plenty of other choices. 
  6. Buy something fun and extremely nerdy. There's a ton of Star Wars merch out there--and you can never have too many baby Yodas.
