New York City-Tuesday is May 4th, a day celebrated annually by Star Wars fans.

According to Lucasfilm, the classic Star Wars slogan “May the Force Be With You” was flip-flopped to “May the Four Be With You” on July 4th in 1978.

The following year, the date was reset to May 4, and a full-page ad appeared in London Evening News, published May 4, 1979, congratulating British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

“Maggie, may the fourth person be with you. Congratulations!” I read.

Since then, Star Wars fans have used this day to celebrate and celebrate distant galaxies.

It has grown in popularity over the years, and to celebrate, the Walt Disney Company virtually rang the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday-with a small hep from Baby Yoda.

“Star Wars Day” is a global celebration of this annual global celebration, as “May 4th with you” does not carry the same witty punch when translated into other languages. It was adopted to establish a meaningful meaning.
