'Star Wars Day': May The Fourth Continue Our Obsession
We've been inundated with Star Wars news lately, but with the first new film due out in December, "too much Star Wars" just isn't possible.By Jay Strubberg | May 3, 2015
It's time to celebrate all things "Star Wars" ... um, again.
May 4 is "Star Wars Day," an unofficial holiday where devoted fans get decked out as Jedi, Stormtroopers, Wookiees and other characters, greeting each other with, "May the fourth be with you." We're guessing, by now, you understand the play on words there.
The phrase and holiday didn't break out of dedicated Star Wars circles until around 2011, but has taken off with the help of the online community. (Video via Lucasfilm Ltd.)
