Happy Star Wars Day by Cayusa

Star Wars Day

“called Star Wars Day…because of the popularity of a common pun spoken on this day. Since the phrase “May the Force be with you” is a famous quote often spoken in the Star Wars films, fans commonly say “May the fourth be with you” on this day”*

(also sometimes known as Luke Skywalker Day)
