Happy belated Star Wars Day, but watch out for Revenge of the Fifth

Each year at Network World we help our readers prepare to celebrate the annual Star Wars holiday, May 4.

Get it - May the Fourth be with you? Here are this year's tips.  

10 Cool Ways to celebrate International Star Wars Day +

We all hope everyone enjoyed their Star Wars day this year. But today (in addition to being Cinco de Mayo), we also warn you to watch out for Revenge of the Fifth. It's unclear what, if anything actually happens on this day. But it's seems that May the Fourth is for the Jedi Star Wars fans while the fifth is for all those who more closely associate with the dark side.

Thanks for Twitter's @DepressedDarth for alerting us to this dark holiday:
