Get your puns ready: Wednesday is Star Wars Day, so-called because it’s May 4 — as in “May the Fourth be with you.”

The unofficial fan celebration is a recent internet trend, but one of the first instances where “May the Fourth be with you” was widely used occurred on this day in 1979, when U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher took office, according to Her party put an ad in the newspaper that read “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

More modern Star Wars Day celebrations include deals — Target, for instance, is giving away $10 gift cards to customers who spend $50 or more on “Star Wars” merchandise online — and events — a bar in New York City is hosting a “Star Wars”-themed burlesque show. This year’s observance is sure to be one of the most widely recognized, as it comes between the releases of “Star Wars” movies “The Force Awakens” and “Rogue One.”

If you’re looking for a way to embrace your inner Jedi on Wednesday, try speaking like one. Here are 27 “Star Wars quotes,” collected from IMDb, Bustle, and ShortList:
