Star Wars Day

Star Wars Day is celebrated on May 4th each year and celebrates the Star Wars universe that was created by filmmaker George Lucas. Observance of the holiday has spread primarily through the internet, social media and grassroots fan organizations. May 4th was chosen for the pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you,” “May the Fourth be with you”. Even though the holiday was not actually created or declared by Lucasfilm or The Walt Disney Company, many Star Wars fans across the world celebrate the holiday.
