Happy Star Wars day!!!

Wikipedia Definition:

May 4 is called Star Wars Day because of a pun or play on words based on the similarity between "May the 4th be with you" and "May the force be with you", a phrase often spoken in the Star Wars movies. In common usage the joke might be presented:

John Doe: Happy Star Wars Day!
Jane Doe: What?
John Doe: May the 4th be with you!

As an example of the cultural impact of Star Wars, the joke is recorded in the UK parliament's Hansard.

Despite efforts to start a Jedi Church with 4 May as its Star Wars Day, as of 4 May 2009 there is no religion-supporting organization that promotes 4 May as Star Wars Day.

Loyal fans of Star Wars, on this day, participate in a variety of activities. Movie Marathons are common whether or not this is a weekend and the Chicagoan Convention is known to occur on this day two years ago.

AWESOME, I know what I'm doing tonight
