What does May the Fourth Be With You mean?
It’s a pun, play on words, using a common saying, “May the Force be with you” in the STAR WARS films and using the date May 4th, OR May the Fourth to celebrate all things STAR WARS. Oh yes, it’s a thing and if you do not love STAR WARS (I don’t understand you) then you won’t get it but at least you’ll be in on the fun.
According to an article found in Time Magazine, Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister of England was elected two years after STAR WARS made its big screen debut. An ad in the London Evening News read, “May The Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.” History was made and now us STAR WARS geeks can all celebrate and rejoice. That, my friends is how May the Fourth came to be. And STAR WARS fans everywhere rejoiced.
Lucasfilms the production company who blessed us with STAR WARS did not come up with May the Fourth, however, on the official STAR WARS website, the company states that they have fully embraced this fan-made holiday.
While the idea of May the 4th did not start with Lucasfilm, the film company that created Star Wars has fully embraced the spirit of fandom that makes the day so special. StarWars.com, as well as the official Star Wars social media channels (hashtag #StarWarsDay), help spread the word and showcase fan activity. More and more official partners have offered sales, giveaways, and exclusives, and have hosted parties and other activities to honor the day.
Ultimately, as Star Wars Day was created by the fans, it is truly their day. Hosting movie marathons, sharing greetings on social media, cooking Star Wars recipes — there are no wrong ways to celebrate May the 4th, and each year we’re amazed at the creative ways that fans mark the occasion. With Star Wars alive like never before, we hope you’ll join in this year.
May the 4th be with you.
