Did you know that May fourth is Star Wars Day?
May the fourth be with you!
May the fourth be with you and welcome to this fun post all about our favorite Holiday . . .
. . or maybe it’s just my favorite holiday?
Anyway . . .
Why May 4th Star Wars Day?
The 4th of May has been officially declared as Star Wars Day! The day was chosen as a play on the Star Wars movie phrase, “May the force be with you.” So, the day of May 4th was designated as “May the Fourth Be With You.”
When did May 4 become Star Wars Day?
The timeframe for the first celebration on May 4th is a little sketchy, but supposedly the first time the phrase “May the Fourth Be With You” was on May 4, 1979. It was reportedly used by Margaret Thatcher’s team to congratulate her on becoming the UK’s prime minister on May 4, 1979.
How do we celebrate Star Wars Day?
