May the Fourth Be With You

May 4, 2015

This day has a special significance in our family. On May 4, 1997 our younger son Noah was born. He turns eighteen today. He’s now an adult.

Today also has special meaning for fans of the movie franchise, Star Wars, and in recent years there’s been a movement to brand it as “Star Wars Day.”

Why call it Star Wars day?

May the fourth be with you.

Painful, but slightly clever. When Noah was younger, he really loved Star Wars, perhaps this explains it.

After a decade long hiatus, another Star Wars feature film will come out this Christmas, see trailer here. In each of the previous films, the phrase, “May the force be with you” has been spoken at least once, so it’s safe to say it will appear in the next one as well.

Why is the phrase so popular?
