May the 4th Be With You

 

I was lounging on the couch in Star Wars PJ pants and my Celebration V exclusive Star Wars shirt, watching Teen Titans and drinking Diet Dr Pepper, when something popped into my head. Today is Star Wars Day.

In 1979 Maggie Thatcher, Britain’s first female Prime Minister, was elected. Her party placed an ad with the slogan “May The Fourth be with you”. This phrase posted two years after the first iconic Lucas film hit the streets, causing geek mania. The phrase, “May the Fourth be with you” echoes in geek infamy now and we celebrate it however we can.

Wear your colors proud today. Marathon it up with as many of the six films as you can. Beat the Force Unleashed again or spend the whole day on SWTOR.  A keystone of geek culture, Star Wars has been with us 35-years on the 25th of this month (same day we celebrate Geek Pride Day). Watch for the Lucas army as your out and about today, because it’s Star Wars Day. May the Force be with you.
