    Thought this was interesting:

    May 4 is called Star Wars Day because of a pun or play on words based on the similarity between "May the 4th be with you" and "May the force be with you", a phrase often spoken in the Star Wars movies. In common usage the joke might be presented:

    John Doe: Happy Star Wars Day!
    Jane Doe: What?
    John Doe: May the 4th be with you!

    As an example of the cultural impact of Star Wars, the joke is recorded[1] in the UK parliament's Hansard.

    Loyal fans of Star Wars, on this day, participate in a variety of activities. Movie Marathons are common whether or not this is a weekend.
