What is Star Wars Day?

Fans of the movie franchise celebrate May the Fourth, because it sounds like the famous line from the movie, "May the force be with you." 

Throughout the world, enthusiasts of the franchise dress up and indulge in food and drinks based on the movies. 

Like many Star Wars characters, "May the Fourth" comes with an interesting origin story. One of the earliest known references to the day followed the May 4, 1979, election of Margaret Thatcher as Britain’s prime minister, according to a post on the official Star Wars website. Thatcher’s party took out an ad in the London Evening News with the message, "May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations," the website said, adding that the day took off once the Internet began connecting fans.
