Will you be celebrating?

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?

But who actually came up with this popular 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. Supposedly (because I wasn’t there to confirm), there was an ad taken out in The London Evening News congratulating Ms. Thatcher on her win: “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 head 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., as well as the official Star Wars social media channels (hashtag #StarWarsDay), help spread the word and showcase fan activity. More and more official partners have offered sales, giveaways, and exclusives, and have hosted parties and other activities to honor the day.

Walt Disney World, who bought out Lucasfilm in 2012, celebrates the day with Star Wars-related festivities and events. In a nod to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, fans also came to celebrate May 5th by joining the “dark side” and declaring “Revenge of the Fifth.” And because this is the age of the internet where everything becomes a meme, so too have these phrases.

On May 4th and 5th, social media will be inundated with Star Wars and May the 4th memes. It’s also very likely that there are people who are absolutely sick of them, too!

So to prepare you, we’ve gathered 19 of the best Star Wars memes for you to share and laugh at. Let’s make Star Wars Day fun, guys! Because the …

19 Yoda Quotes to Keep You Away From the Dark Side and Awake the Greatness Within

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Inspiration don’t always have to come from real-life people. We often find ourselves inspired by characters that live in the realms of the books we read, the movies we watch, the games we play…

And while our beloved characters may have stemmed from their author’s vision, they are often anchored in real-life experiences and bear the wisdom of the person that served as inspiration for the character. Most great stories have a message that transcends into real life, passing on valuable lessons from complex and wise characters. Who better than Yoda to stand as proof of that?

Grand Jedi Master Yoda conquered us all with his kindness, his soothing and trustworthy voice, his limitless (and kindly shared) wisdom and, of course, his charmingly funny way of speaking. Not to mention: who wouldn’t regain their confidence after seeing such a tiny creature beat the hell out of the Dark Side followers?

Here are 19 full of wisdom Yoda quotes to keep you on the Light Side of the Force and bring out the best in you. May the Force be with you!
