Self-proclaimed "geeks" may have delighted in Free Comic Book Day earlier this month, but who says nerds only deserve one day of celebration? Today, May 25, is official Geek Pride Day, which is celebrated annually on this date to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film, "A New Hope" in 1977. Sure, Star Wars Day is also May 4th (because it wouldn't be right if geeks everywhere couldn't utter "may the 4th be with you!" on that day), but the saga is so beloved that a second celebration is fine by me.

The original Geek Pride Day originated in Spain, where it was called "Día del orgullo friki." So, in honor of the day, here is a video of cats in a "Star Wars" parody because this is the internet. Enjoy!
