Origin of Star Wars Day, May The 4th

Today is May the 4th and for the Star Wars Community it is known as Star Wars Day!


May the 4th is based on the phrase ‘May the Force Be With You’ from the Star Wars Saga.

The picture below, posted on the 501st Facebook page, is a year out of date, but gives a great description of the origins of May the 4th as a Day to celebrate the Star Wars Saga:


I plan on celebrating this special Star Wars Day by posting Star Wars related content on my social media pages, dressing in my Star Wars gear from Her Universe, listening to the Star Wars soundtracks on my iPod and watching an episode or two of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Netflix!

So no matter how you celebrate this ‘holiday’, have a great day and ‘May The Forth Be With You!’
