4 May

Today is recognised by Star Wars fans as International Star Wars Day – “May the Fourth be with you.” It supposedly developed from the Conservatives having placed an ad in a newspaper on 4 May 1979 to congratulate Margaret Thatcher’s taking office that day. It read "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations." Because of the popularity of Star Wars Day, the next day, May 5th, has come to be called "Revenge of the Fifth", a play on Star Wars 3: Revenge of the Sith. On this day, fans join the "Dark Side" by celebrating the Sith Lords from the Star Wars series.

Some Star Wars humour . . .
