May the Fourth be with you!

The impact that George Lucas's franchise has had on our culture cannot be overstated. Even while they complain about the changes being made to these movies, and about The Phantom Menace, fans have made this one of the most, if not the most, commercially successful franchises in history. This cannot help having an impact on culture. Moral values have been influenced by Luke Skywalker and Yoda. "He joined the Dark Side" has become synonymous with doing something evil. Star Wars changed our culture.

I believe that May 4th should be a national holiday. Not a major one like Christmas, but just something recognized by everyone as a tradition. Maybe a few banks can close.

I disagree. May the Fourth should be an international holiday. Everyone should be able to celebrate the splendor of Star Wars.

Reasons for voting decision: Con states that it should be an international holiday, instead of a national. However, if it were international, it would indeed be a national one, therefor conceding.
