The cynical part of my brain: "EVERY day is 'SW Day' in my life, and has been since my parents bought me R2 & 3-P0 action figures in 1979 to occupy me on an airplane to FL and has continued to being obsessed w/seeing the ANH/ESB double feature in 1981, RotJ on opening night (being the cool elementary school kid who saw a movie on a school night!), to proposing while watching EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, to recreating the original SW poster on the alter on our wedding day, to cutting our wedding cake (w/Han & Lei 1980 vintage action figures as cake toppers) w/a lightsaber, to adorning our condo walls with autographed SW pics, Luke (then Rey)'s lightsaber sitting underneath a 1981 Yoda puppet.  I've been living SW almost my entire life (I predate it by a year though it's what I've known forever)!"

The non-cynical part of my brain: "the cool thing about this nerdy holiday that has become a corporate means to sell stuff is that at least a lot of people are thinking of Star Wars today that wouldn't have otherwise, and that's pretty cool!"

The Daily Deal on Amazon today is selected SW merch.  The only thing that caught my eye was the Hallway for $33, the cheapest I've seen it.
