Did You Know Darth Vader Can Be Found at Our National Cathedral?

Did you know Darth Vader can be found at our National Cathedral?

In reading the recent Dan Brown novel The Lost Symbol, it was mentioned that there is a Darth Vader grotesque (like a gargoyle) on our Nation's Cathedral. I did not know if it was true so I looked it up. Sure enough, on the outer front way up high is a carving of Darth Vader. It was placed there following a children's contest in the 1980's. Check here  for more information.

Interesting, but it fits there.

I thought it was just a made up part of the story, but Star Wars being such a part of modern life, I just had to look it up! I thought it was a fun fact to share
