At first the kids were kind of shy about it not wanting to advertise their parents geekdom but by the day of the party it was all the talk at the school lunch table. We had an outdoor showing of the movies and we all dressed up. It was fun and the girls really got creative. Two of my daughters friends showed up in huge boxes, cut and painted like the two towers complete with the "eye" at the top of one. This cute guy hooking up the sound is my hubby as Frodo after Shelob the spider winds him up in her web. We had a Gollum, a Hobbit a Tree Ent Wife and a Uruk Hai in attendance as well as Eowyn and my neighbor who had not seen the movies came bearing chicken wing appetisers and dressed as "Lord of the Wings". Funny!
Now the word is out that we are total nerds and the kids can't wait to throw a Star Wars Party. I guess it is not where you live but what you make of it.
