Even though the holiday was not created or declared by Lucasfilm, many Star Wars fans across the world have chosen to celebrate May 4th as a holiday. Stemming from the phrase "May The Force Be With You" and being deemed as "May The Fourth Be With You" - it has since been embraced by Lucasfilm as an annual celebration of Star Wars.
