May the 4th be with you! The Fourth of May may be an unofficial Star Wars holiday, but that does not mean we should not celebrate it. It may have started just as a punny joke (get it?) but it has become one of the largest events in the world to celebrate a single movie franchise. In fact, May 4th was declared as Star Wars Day in the State of California. However, in other places like LA, Star Wars Day is celebrated on the 25th instead of the 4th of May.
The puns don’t actually stop there. For those who failed to celebrate National Star Wars Day on the 4th, a separate event is celebrated on the fifth of May. This is aptly called “Revenge of the Fifth”. Although it did not catch on as strongly as May 4, many fans still enjoy the two-day event full blast.
Usually, fans and enthusiasts block out cinemas to replay the films. Events are put together to play games and show off the best Star Wars-themed costumes.
What better way to celebrate May 4 at home than to explore the best and most well-designed Star Wars websites? The Force is strong with these ones, for sure.
