Me: It’s Star Wars day! May the Fourth be with you!
Co-Worker: Ha, that’s funny. :\
Why is today Star Wars day? Why not June Fourth?
Me: …. ? .. May the Fourth…
And that is the reason behind Star Wars day, because of the pun, “May the fourth be with you.” Some of the credit goes to the London press who put this now infamous quote into ink with “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.” On May 4th, 1979, Margret Thatcher was elected as Britian’s Prime Minister. In 2005, an interviewer of George Lucas misinterpeted the saying “May the force be with you.” into “We shall be with you on May Fourth”. The first ever huge organization of a May 4th, Star Wars party was held last year, in Toronto Canada by the Toronto Underground Cinema. And today May 4, 2012 will be the 2nd edition of the Underground’s Star Wars Party, with the claim “IT WILL BE THE BEST PARTY IN THE GALAXY!” I must admit, I am just a little jealous.
NEVER SEEN STAR WAR?!!!!!
Really? So blogger, whyevolutionistrue, has never seen star wars. Yes, it’s true there are a few people that have never seen Star Wars. I myself could claim that I had never seen a full episode of “Friends” during it’s first four seasons… But that was only 3 hail Mary’s, Star Wars would have to be at least 30 Hail Mary’s and 6 Confessions.

As a side not, May 25th, 1977 was the release date of Star Wars.
What do you know, just a few short weeks after my birthday. Star Wars and I are the same age! We are getting old.
