May 4th Star Wars Day

We all know Star Wars; Han Solo, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Jedi warriors, etc., etc, etc. But did you know today became a holiday by mistake? The famous line, “May the fourth be with you” came from a post by the Conserbative Party when Margaret Thatcher won the Prime Minister seat. But now Star Wars fans all over have adopted it as a holiday!

How to celebrate – Watch any of the 200 or so Star Wars movies today. Dress up like your favorite character from the series. Visit a Star Wars museum.

George Lucas created Star Wars in 1977, “A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away.” Even George Lucas didn’t expect the success Star Wars would be when he created it. And I am sure he certainly did not think that he would share this day with Margret Thatcher when she was elected Prime Minister of England on May 4th, 1979.

Why? The newspaper headlines read after Thatcher’s election, “May the Fourth be With You”.
