May the Fourth and other geek holidays

Today is the magical day known as May the fourth as in “May the fourth be with you.” Unfortunately I didn’t do anything Star Wars-centric today (I saw the awesome Avengers film today (opening day) and if you’re reading this, chances are you’ve already seen its awesomeness).

Since May the fourth last year, I’ve compiled a small list of other potential geek holidays. Some are pretty good and I was really reaching with others. See if you can come up with your own.

4/1 – The A-Team (It’s April Fool’s Day and BA said ‘fool’ a lot)
4/7 – Alias (While the number 47 is prominent in a lot of JJ Abrams’ work, I loved Alias)
5/2 – DC Comics (For 52 Earths, number of issues in the weekly 52 series, and how many #1 books DC released during their initial relaunch)
5/4 – Star Wars (May the Fourth)
5/5 – Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Faith was Five by Five)
6/16 – Marvel Comics (The mainstream Marvel Universe exists on Earth-616)
10/4 – Dukes of Hazzard (They used CB radios a lot and used the code 10-4 a lot)
10/5 – Dark Angel (Because Max was a series X5)
