Because of the way the date rolls off the tongue, May 4 is unofficially “Star Wars Day,” when fans worldwide celebrate the wildly popular franchise.
It’s also a day when brands embrace their inner Star Wars geek to get in the #MayThe4thBeWithYou spirit.
It started with a pun congratulating Margaret Thatcher, but ever since her election May 4 has been Star Wars Day—not because of any release date anniversary but because the date, when said in a way no one ever says dates, sounds like “May the Force be with you.”
On May 4, 1979, after the previous day’s general election, Thatcher became the first female prime minister in the United Kingdom. To celebrate her victory, her Conservative Party took out a newspaper ad reading “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.
