The History of Star Wars Day
The day seems to have something to do with the phrase used in one of the star wars shows – “may the force be with you!”. The phrase was used several times in the past. It was used when Margaret Thatcher became the PM on May 4, 1979. However, it was in 2008 that a few Facebook Groups introduced the catchphrases.
In any case, there is no specific reason that has made the Star Wars Day exactly fall on May 4. However, the connoisseurs claim that the May 4th is chosen on account of the spin-off saying “May the fourth be with you” taken from one of the popular Star Wars phrases – “May the force be with you.”
