May the 4th be with you. Today is Star Wars Day

Filed in Gather News Channel by on May 4, 2010 0 Comments

So today is known in the “Star Wars” universe as Star Wars Day. This is because of the pun between “May the 4th be with you” and “May the Force be with you.”

Today you might hear people who are into the galaxy far far away saying “May the 4th be with you.” It could be considered a secret hello among fans.

It isn’t an official holiday or anything like that. So unfortunately we can’t all stay home from work or school and have a “Star Wars” marathon. People are going to be googling this all day so now you know what it is.


However, The Los Angeles City Council declared May 25, 2007 as Star Wars Day due to the honor of May 25, 1977 when the original film came out.

It may be nerdy to some but to others it’s a way life. Here’s a site that has some great quotes from the “Star Wars” movies.

Well maybe you could find someway to honor this great world created by George Lucas. Watch one of the movies, read one of the books, or just quote some of your favorite lines. For other ideas click here.  Me being the Star Wars nut that I am I will either “Execute order 66″ or go look for Boba Fett so we can fly around in his Slave I. Ok well more simply put I will probably just watch one of the movies. Listening to the podcasts, The ForceCast and Star Wars Action News is a good idea too! The galaxy will celebrate today and have peace restored once again. So I will say “May the 4th be with you,” and the “Force.”
