The holiday which began as a tongue-in-cheek pun regarding the 4th day in the month of May has grown into a worldwide fandom celebration of George Lucas’ space odyssey, Star Wars.  At its origin, the day was only recognized in niche circles by a few young Jedis in-training and some Wookie-enthusiasts.  However, as infatuation for the brand expanded, so did the popularity of this little-known observance into a global holiday phenomenon. 

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle is a little over one month away. As the most anticipated royal wedding since Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge tied the knot seven years ago, British Royalty fanatics and wedding lovers alike are giddy with expectation. Unlike most non-royal weddings, royal weddings have many predetermined elements, created throughout history and kept in name of tradition.
