May the Fourth: What did Star Wars mean to you growing up?

As pervasive as the air we breathe, Star Wars has occupied the Pop-culture consciousness for decades. In that time span generations have watched and lived Star Wars, from the first day it premiered a long time ago, the prequels decades later, to the sequels and spin-offs now, and all the expanded universe in between. It’s hard not to have an opinion of it growing up. So if you wish, in celebration of being the Fourth of May, share your childhood experiences of growing up in that galaxy far far away.
