National Star Wars Day- May the Fourth Be With You 

National Star Wars Day- May the Fourth Be With You

Today May 4th is National Star Wars Day. Lucasfilm spokeperson say it all started in May 4, 1979 when Margaret Thatcher took office as the UK Prime Minister. The Conservative Party placed an ad in the newspaper stating  "May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations!" and the media picked up on it and here we are today 36 years later loving Star Wars thanks to social media and of course some great movies.

 

So celebrate at your favorite pub, put on your costume if you still have one, or rent a Star Wars movie and watch it or play Star Wars Trivia with your friends.

 

 

Celebrations are all over the worldwide today so be sure to join in; Toronto had a parade, Australia has events planned, Chicago has a contest going on, many In-store and on-line sales today are discounted in recognition, and Lucasfilm/Disney has partnered up with UNICEF to raise money for kids worldwide. Vanity Fair Magazine has a new edition out "Star Wars ReBoots". Check out the new Hallmark toy characters too.

 

National Star Wars Day- May the Fourth Be With You#StarWars.

 

*I remember wanting putting my hair up like Princess Leia in braided rolls on both sides and I loved YODA. 

 

Thanks for Reading My Real Estate Blog

Kristin.  When I went to google this morning something flashed May the Fourth be With you.  I wasn't sure what it meant.  I looked at my calendar and thought OK its the 4th of May.  Thanks for clearing this up for me.

I will never forget being in the front row of the theater while watching the first Star Wars movie.  Wow, where have the years gone?

Hi @Myrl,

How exciting that must have been. I thought Harrison Ford was so cute and I wanted him to get Princess Leia.
