50 'May The Fourth Be With You' Memes To Celebrate Star Wars Day (And The Revenge Of The 5th!)

May the fourth be ever in your favor meme

Happy Star Wars Day! What’s that? You don’t know what Star Wars Day is? Well, then it’s a good thing you’re reading this.

Fans of the movie franchise will know that “May the force be with you” is one of the most famous lines from the movie. And “May the 4th be with you” is a play on that very line. So punny, am I right?

Origin Of The May the 4th Be With You Meme

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... Margaret Thatcher became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom on — wait for it — May 4, 1979. There was an ad taken out in The London Evening News congratulating Ms. Thatcher on her win that stated: “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.”

The original Star Wars film was released in 1977, so it makes sense that it was fresh in everyone’s heads as its popularity grew. (Though, you probably would be denied a day off if you requested to observe Star Wars Day, as it is considered an unofficial holiday.)

According to the official Star Wars website, "While the idea of May the 4th did not start with Lucasfilm, the film company that created Star Wars has fully embraced the spirit of fandom that makes the day so special. StarWars.com and the official Star Wars social media channels (hashtag #StarWarsDay) help spread the word and showcase fan activity."

Disney bought out Lucasfilm, and therefore the entire Star Wars franchise, back in 2012, and now celebrates the day with Star Wars-related festivities and events.
