To all the diehard Star Wars fans out there, "May the 4th be with you!" Yes, that's right, May 4 is International Star Wars Day, and, for some, it might just be the happiest day of the year. With Star Wars-themed parties to attend (in costume, of course!) and endless puns to crack, it's the perfect chance to geek out with your fellow Star Warriors. Whether you want to get laughs on social media or around the office, there are endless Star Wars quotes to celebrate May the 4th.
When did Star Wars Day become a thing? It would be natural to assume it was born out of social media, which gifted us with plenty of other hashtag holidays (National Sibling Day, anyone?). But Star Wars Day dates back well before the internet took hold. In fact, the phrase "May the 4th be with you" was first uttered the day the new British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, took office on May 4, 1979, according to CNN.
It may have started in the UK, but it's now a global phenomenon, with people celebrating Star Wars Day all over the world. So with that in mind, here are 10 stellar Star Wars quotes to drop on this galactic holiday. Warning: we've gone heavy on the Princess Leia quotes since this is only the second Star Wars Day since Carrie Fisher's passing (May the 4th be with you in the great beyond!).
