These May the 4th memes are perfect to share with all Star Wars fans. And if your friends aren’t Star Wars fans yet, then bring them over to the dark side. 

Where did May the Fourth come from? The phrase tied to this unofficial Star Wars Day was first used May 4, 1979, when Margaret Thatcher took office as Prime Minister of the U.K.  A full-page advertisement in the London Evening News appeared congratulating the new Prime Minister, which read: “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie.” Members of Thatcher’s Conservative party published this, who were surely Star Wars fans. 

Since then many Star Wars fans celebrate in different ways by reading funny Star Wars memes, by having Star Wars movie marathons, or even by making Star Wars foods, like these adorable Chewbacca cookies.
