As most fans probably know, May 4th is Star Wars Day. The day is celebrated with a playful take on the iconic line “May the force be with you.” The first known use of the pun “May the 4th be with you” came a year after the release of Star Wars in 1978 and has been used by fans ever since. Although Lucasfilm does not recognize the holiday, it has become an annual celebration of all things Star Wars.
