May the Fourth Be With You!

may the fourth

It is officially Star Wars Day and people are celebrating in every way possible! The day started as a pun but as social media began to take over, people started tweeting and even making “memes” about the day. So how did this all start?!

As legend has it, and according to the origin story recognized by Lucasfilm, the phrase was first used on May 4, 1979, the day Margaret Thatcher took office as UK prime minister. The Conservative party allegedly placed an ad in the London Evening News which read, “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

It took off in the social media age (where it has become a big deal every year) and finally expanded to real-life with events in Toronto. Now, there are events celebrating the day worldwide. Even the Boston Red Sox had fun with the day and made it an official Star Wars night for the game at Fenway tonight.

So have fun with the day and grab a date and a drink! Or have a night of it and make it a Star Wars marathon but don’t forget the popcorn!

XOXO,

Mojuba

              Burger King pays for couples wedding!

              Apr 07, 2015 | Comments 0


              Burger King gave a new meaning to their slogan “Have it your way.” A couple from New Berlin, Illinois recently got engaged and shared a picture to tell everyone their great news.

              Burger-King engagement announcement

              Then Joel Burger and Ashley King got some exciting news on Monday. A Burger King spokesman got in touch with them on Monday via Skype to let them know that they would be paying for their expenses and gifts for their upcoming wedding. Their whopper sized love stretches back to elementary school.

              “The guy at the assembly was a motivational speaker, and he used yo-yos,” Ashley told the State Journal-Register. “He asked the two fifth-grade (student council) representatives to stand up as he wanted the students to applaud our efforts in helping set up his event. As soon as he said, ‘Joel Burger and Ashley King,’ he started to laugh out loud and pronounced we were ‘Burger King.’”

              The name stuck as they remained close friends throughout high school and began dating in college, where Burger was studying at Monmouth College and King at the University of Illinois Springfield.

              —> You can watch Joel and Ashley’s reaction talking to Burger King spokesman via Skype <—-

              “When we heard about the happy, Burger-King couple, we felt an overwhelming urge to celebrate their upcoming marriage,” said Eric Hirschhorn, Burger King Brand spokesman. “On so many levels it felt like fate; they found each other and their story found us.” “We knew deep in our hearts that we wanted to honor the union of Mr. Burger and Ms. King,” says Hirschhorn.

              “And now we hope we’ve swept them off their feet. All we ask in return is that they live happily ever after,” says Hirschhorn

              Now all they need are a few of our Emergency Kits for the Bride and Groom so the wedding can go on without any mishaps because lets face it; life happens, be prepared.

                Identical triplet sisters say, “I DO” in joint wedding!

                Apr 02, 2015 | Comments 0


                Guests at a wedding service saw triple when three identical sisters tied the knot together at the same ceremony.

                triplets wedding

                Triplets Rafaela, Rochele and Tagiane Bini share the same birthday, the same looks and tastes, and now – after marrying men who look strikingly similar – the same wedding anniversary too.

                triplets with husbands

                The 29-year-old sisters, from Passo Fundo, southern Brazil, even wore the same wedding dress, as well as hair style and make up, for their big day on Saturday. A different color bouquet was the only clue to help bewildered family and friends help distinguish one bride from the other. Even the grooms, Rafael, Gabriel and Eduardo – admitted they were worried they might mix up their wives to be when it came to exchanging vows.

                The sisters said, like other identical siblings, they have always been close and shared the same tastes and interest since they were babies.

                triplet sisters marry

                Rafaela was the first to find her future husband, Rafael, ten years ago while studying at university. A year later, Rochele got together with Gabriel. It was parents Pedro and Salete who suggested the girls all get married together after Tagiane also got engaged to Eduardo. The only dilemma for Pedro, a farmer, was how he would walk all three daughters down the aisle at once.

                triplets with family and husbands

                They decided that the girls would walk half way down the church and Pedro would walk each individual girl down the aisle. The pews at the Nossa Senhora Aparecida catholic cathedral in Passo Fundo were moved apart to allow more space for the three brides to walk down the aisle together.

                They were followed by 18 bridesmaids and page boys, each using the chosen color of the bride they were representing, yellow for Rafaela, blue for Rochele and red for Tagiane.

                triplet sisters

                The first to be taken down the aisle was Tagiane who was the first born of the triplets. They all went together to get their hair and makeup done with intentions of looking different. But after trying several different styles they all wanted the same one.

                triplets say I DO

                 

                What a special moment to share with your sisters, and a great way to remember for years to come of how close and important they are to each other.

                What did you think of this triple wedding? Would you share your special day with your sibling(s)?

                XOXO,
