May The Fourth Be With You: 'Star Wars' Holiday Celebrated At Disney This Year

“May the fourth be with you!” fans of the “Star Wars” saga will exclaim on Saturday in celebration of this unofficial holiday stemming  in part from the pun spoken on May 4 by “Star Wars” fans everywhere. While both the holiday and the pun have been embraced by “Star Wars” fans, the phrase wasn’t first uttered by one. After the late Margaret Thatcher’s election, the Conservative Party placed an ad in the London Evening News that said “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

Interest in the holiday has grown in recent years with meetups and small events.

This year, Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando is celebrating the holiday with character-meet-and-greets, Jedi trainings and music, among other festivities.

For the “Star Wars” fans among us, get ready to party like an Ewok-star.
