“May the 4th Be With You.” Odds are good that you’ll hear this multiple time today from Star Wars fans who cannot get enough of the annual Star Wars celebration that takes a funny pun on the May the Force Be With You quote said in every Star Wars movie at least once, in at least one variation.
Disney and Lucasfilms even get in on the fun with official May the Fourth be with you delivering deals and fun for fans across the globe.
The May the 4th be with you saying dates back as far as 1979 when a congratulatory ad for Margaret Thatcher read, “May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations.” Since this ad appeared in the London Evening News Star Wars Day grew in popularity and there are celebrations, parties, deals and all types of entertainment and fun.
Here are 5 things you need to know about Star Wars Day and how you can score deals on Star Wars merchandise, games and even how you can make a Star Wars StormTrooper mask out of milk jugs to celebrate.
This year Star Wars Day comes with stronger Force as we will see a new Star Wars Movie and a new Star Wars game in 2015. Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens arrives in December and the Star Wars Battlefront 3 release date is a few weeks earlier.

Make a Storm trooper Helmet Out of Milk Jugs
If you have two empty milk jugs, some white spray paint, electrical tape and a black magic marker you can make a Storm Trooper mask in a few minutes. You just need to cut, spray and draw your way into looking like a Storm Trooper. Use this detailed guide to make a Storm Trooper milk jug helmet.
