Your guide to May the 4th, a holiday that will Endor

Blow off that trip to Tosche Station to get power converters. CNET has "Star Wars" activities aplenty to make your May the 4th more fun than bull's-eying womp rats in your T-16.

May the 4th may be just another day to you (unless it's your birthday, in which case, happy birthday!), but it's also the unofficial holiday for "Star Wars" fans around the world. With that in mind, we've spent the week covering more "Star Wars" stuff than you can shake a gaffi stick at. Here are some of the highlights.

If you're not all tuckered out after all those Free Comic Book Day festivities on Saturday, you can try a "Star Wars"-themed workout similar to those offered at a Dallas fitness center to celebrate May the 4th. Crave's Amanda Kooser has the details and a handy sheet of exercises (think Lightsaber Leaps and Kessel Run Sprints) in case you weren't in Dallas Saturday and/or don't own a time machine.

At my house, we're not doing anything official for the holiday (just wait till Life Day), but I am seriously tempted to try at least one of the original crafts projects that Crave writer and Jedi Master of "Star Wars" crafting Bonnie Burton has come up with.

I mean, come on -- how freaking adorable is that Chewbacca tablet cozy? Or the lightsaber pillows? Or the Princess Leia headband? Or -- OK, I guess I'll be hitting my local craft store and stocking up. Thanks, Bonnie.

While the glue sets or after the crafting is done, why not relax with a movie or six?

CNET's Donald Bell has a video detailing the Top 5 ways to watch the "Star Wars" movies. I wouldn't want to influence (Machete order) how you decide to watch the movies (Machete order), so I'll just be impartial and say that Donald has five different approaches you can take (Machete order).

Sorry, you are not old enough to view this content.

Before you start up the film festival, consider tossing together some theme-appropriate snacks. Bonnie has a handy wrap-up of cosmic comestibles and potent potables for your Star Wars Day celebration. And we're not talking about a plain old glass of blue milk, either.

Then get into bed, turn off the lights, and stare into the evil eyes of your new glow-in-the-dark Sith Lord.

And if that's not enough "Star Wars" for you, we've got plenty more for you in our handy link sidebar.

See? Got through a whole article about "Star Wars" without making too many puns.

Those always seem so Forced.
