Happy Star Wars Day

May 04, 2014

Today - May 4th - is Star Wars day when fans of George Lucas' epic franchise celebrate the iconic films culture today by immersing themselves in full makeup and costumes, movie marathons, fan events, and sometimes a language all of their own.


May 4th is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise's film series, books and culture. The date was chosen as 'May the 4th' sounds similar to the series' popular phrase - "May the Force be with you", in which fans commonly say "May the fourth be with you."


(But don't party too hard, you'll need your wits about you tomorrow... the day known as Revenge of the Fifth.)
