5 Ways To Celebrate “Star Wars Day”
Let me start by saying, "May the fourth be with you."
There, now that we have that out of the way, let's continue...If you don't know the history behind this pun, according to CNN, May 4th, is known as "Star Wars Day" because of a headline used back in 1979 in the London Evening News. The headline about the election of former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, read "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations" and that's pretty much all it took to inspire Star Wars fans to celebrate the day.
CNN has developed a list of FIVE things you can do on "Star Wars Day" which includes a stormtrooper costume and an adult beverage...hmm...sounds like a plan! :) To check out their complete list, click here.
