Celebrities headed to social media to Star Wars Day on May 4th – with some creative outfits.

Retail companies also join in on the fun by giving discounts on Star Wars merchandise. Lego gave unique gifts by purchasing Star Wars products.

The holiday was not created by Lucasfilm, but many fans have chosen to celebrate the iconic film series on this day. It originated from the pun, “May the Fourth be with you,” from the Star Wars catchphrase, “May the force be with you.”
