May the Fourth be With You

Yes folks, today May 4th is unofficial "Star Wars Day"

From Tim Sayell I read:
  • Apparently, according to Lucasfilm, the "real" unofficial National Star Wars Day is actually May 25th. But is unoffically National Towel Day in honor of Douglas Adams, author of "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy". Plus, today you can say the corny line: May the fourth be with you.
And according to the Wikipedia there may be a gram of truth in this:
  • In 2005 German news TV channel N24 interviewed George Lucas and asked him to say his famous sentence, "May the Force be with you." The translator simultaneously translated to German: "Am 4. Mai sind wir bei Ihnen". (We are with you on May 4).

Here is Tim's yahoo search just full of fourth goodness

And my favorite the Los Angels Times post

So if you feel a strange urge to gather with your hommies and watch The Star Wars movies over and over again while exchanging catch phrases...well then the fourth really is strong in you......
