May 4th is Star Wars Day, a day to celebrate Star Wars. Why May 4th? Because May the Fourth is vaguely reminiscent of “May the Force be with you.” It’s a bit of a stretch, but it works. There’s no set way to celebrate this holiday. Most people repost a Star Wars related meme on Facebook, but there are lots of other ways to celebrate. You can watch the original trilogy and pretend that there is no prequel trilogy. You can speak backwards all day like Yoda. You can style your hair like Princess Leia. You can try to communicate by only speaking in Star Wars quotes. It’s just a day to release your inner nerd and not be judged for it. Star Wars Day has become so popular that it even has a sequel holiday on May 5th, known as Revenge of the Fifth. Nerds love bad puns.
