Bella’s Birthday/Stephenie Meyer Celebration Kicks Off in Forks

All sorts of things are going on in Forks this weekend. The post office has even gotten into the act and created a special stamp! According to the Forks Forum (the local newspaper):

The Forks Post Office and the LaPush Office are issuing two new Twilight-themed stamped envelopes just in time for this weekend’s Bella’s Birthday celebration at Tillicum Park.

The LaPush Post Office is selling special pictoral postmark of Team Jacob and Forks Post Office is offering a special pictoral Team Edward postmark. Each envelope also has a special Forks cancellation and a birthday cake stamp. Both envelopes sell for $4 each.

Last year the Twilight special issue sold several thousand copies. The special stamped envelopes were only available for a short time and are now collector’s items.

A Forks Post Office van will also again be set up at Tillicum Park to sell the Twilight envelopes, plus offer mailing services for Twilight fans who purchase souvenir gift items from Twilight vendors.

For more information on the envelopes send an email to the Forks Post Office.”

Eclipse to Be Released in Theatres


Just in time to celebrate Bella’s Birthday on September 13th, Summit Entertainment is re-releasing Eclipse in theaters. Perhaps re-releasing isn’t quite the word since you can still find it in theaters now if you scrounge around and its box office run hasn’t officially closed (and likely won’t until October/November). Here’s what Summit Entertainment put out on their Twitter:

“In celebration of Bella’s birthday, ECLIPSE will be re-released in theatres nationwide this Friday!”

Now given that they will put the movie back into wider distribution, and that the current movie choices are generally considered by most movie blogs as lackluster at best, Eclipse should clean up this weekend.  We’d be stunned if by the time exact figures are released on Monday, Eclipse hasn’t reached the $300,000,000 mark. This will be the first time a predominantly women’s drive movie has reached that mark since Titanic hit it over a decade ago.

So, will one more visit to see Eclipse in theaters this weekend be on your agenda?
