It’s not a national holiday, yet it might be an intergalactic one.
May the Fourth, as in “May the Fourth Be With You” has become a day to celebrate all things Star Wars, especially following last year’s revival of the series with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
Comedy Central’s “@midnight” got things started by launching a #StarWarsSongs hashtag, asking fans to come up with Star Wars themed song titles. Some of the responses include “Whiskey in the Jar Jar” and “When You Wish Upon a Death Star.”
Star Wars’ official website says “May the Fourth” references can be traced to 1979, but the day took off once the Internet started connecting fans.
