Happy Star Wars Day to you!
This holiday was created and is celebrated by fans of the Star Wars movies worldwide. Beware, social medias will be targetted by many Star Wars fans on this May 4th!
You can take part in the festivities by watching all of the Star Wars movies, cooking Star Wars recipes like the Blue Milk, dressing up as your favourite character. Anyway is good to show the world how much you love Star Wars and to convert others to the Force, Dark or Light.
The date for Star Wars Day was chosen because May the Fourth resembles the catchy phrase “May the Force be with you”. The first reference to this was made on May 4, 1979, the day Margaret Thatcher won the election and became Britain’s first woman prime minister. To celebrate their victory, her party placed an advertisement in the London Evening News. The message said: May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations!
Many other sightings of May the Fourth were seen after this! It was used on May 4th, 1994, at a UK Parliment defence debate.
The first organised celebration of Star Wars Day took place in 2011 Toronto, Canada at Toronto Underground Cinema. You could take part in a costume contest, an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show, and the web’s best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen.
Disney bought LucasFilm late in 2012, thus purchasing the rights to Star Wars. Since 2013, The Walt Disney Company observes this holiday with events and festivities at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Did you know that on Star Wars Day 2015, the astronauts in the International Space Station watched Star Wars!
