May the 4th be with you on this Star Wars Day 2023!

Star Wars Day is on its way!

With the arrival of May 4th, along comes Star Wars Day! "May the force be with you!" It’s a pun, you see. It might not be an official public holiday, but to Star Wars fans, May 4th is the annual celebration of everything Jedi-related. On this date, chosen for its similarity to the motto "May the 4th Be With You!", fans around the globe dress up to mark the special day.

Another saying is "May the Fourth Be With You!" or "May the 4th Be With You!", Whichever way you spell it, it will be heard a lot on Star Wars Day.

Hmm, I wonder: when and how did this day and pun begin? I have a hunch 😉 

to celebrate all things Star Wars and wishful thinking...Star Wars-themed gifts. We all know the saying evolved from the first film in the 1970s—in 1977, to be exact. "May the Fourth Be With You!" These six words have become a universal language phenomenon and have been uttered throughout the Star Wars films. I really like these words, as they inspire and give you a sense of comfort. They are strong and encouraging words that are very positive. We all need good vibes like this in life, and not only in a galaxy far, far away.

Here is a cute YouTube video that features different character clips saying these memorable words. This saying is similar to "Namaste". You are acknowledging someone’s presence and sending them goodness, luck, light, and love.(In a sense, the force is light too.:)

My favourite and third character to say this is good ol’ Yoda. I like Yoda because he is wise, but he is also cranky. Yoda's wisdom and knowledge have a profound positive impact on other key characters within the saga, but his wisdom also has real-world value that everyone can learn from. Exuding lots of love, deep down in Yoda's heart, he is a thoughtful, caring dude, or humanoid alien. After chipping away at him, you'll know he'll eventually break down, smile, and laugh!

We have dug up a "May the Fourth Be With You" Star Wars mug in a gift shop, Danna Bananas, not in a galaxy far, far away, but in the cyber world, that can be ordered and sent to you. We all get stumped when buying gifts, but this Star Wars-themed gift is not only out-of-this-world fun but functional too, this Star Wars Day and beyond. Functionality is important in a gift, as you want it to be utilized and not just sit around. They can make memorable Mother’s Day gifts, Father’s Day gifts, and birthday gifts.
