Maybe it’s folklore or maybe it’s steeped in fact, but legend has it that back in 1979, Star Wars and politics collided. The way the story goes, Margaret Thatcher was taking the office as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on May the Fourth and her supporters took out an ad which said, “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie!”
Soon after May the Fourth became an unofficial holiday for Star Wars fans and has only grown in popularity. It is presently embraced by many die-hard fans as well as Disney which owns the rights to the films and puts on an all Star Wars day at their parks each May the Fourth.
