Star Wars Day
Date When Celebrated: Always on May 4th
It's all because of a play on words!
Star Wars Day is May the Fourth, because of a famous quote from the hugely popular science fiction series blockbuster is "May the Force (Fourth) be with you"
Great ways to Celebrate Star Wars Day:
Some call this Day "Luke Skywalker Day".
Origin of Star Wars Day:
While we are so glad that this day exists, its creation was a fluke. In 2005, a German News Tv channel N24 interview erroneously translated this famous Star Wars quote. In German, "May the force be with you", was incorrectly interpreted as "We are with you on May 4th". We do believe, that if this error had not occurred, someone, somewhere would have created this day.
There are some references to this as "National" Star Wars Day. We found no record of a presidential or congressional proclamation.
