Time to break out your lightsabers, Star Wars‘ holiday is upon us.
In case you don’t get what this fuss is all about, well, it all began on May 4, 1979. Margaret Thatcher took office as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Her political party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News saying, “May the fourth be with you, Maggie. Congratulations!”
And that phrase stuck.
However, there were no official Star Wars celebrations until 2011, when Toronto, Canada made them a reality. At the Toronto Underground Cinema, Sean Ward and Alice Quinn organized an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show, a costume contest with celebrity judges and the web’s best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. The celebration repeated the following year and now it has become a tradition.
