How Social Media Is Celebrating #StarWarsDay



Yoda - Star Wars

Because millions around the world love social media, wordplay and a galaxy far, far away, it’s no wonder that iconic “Star Wars” phrase, “May the force be with you,” gets converted once a year to “May the fourth be with you.” That day, as you probably already know, is #StarWarsDay.

Today and every May 4th, fans of Luke, Han, Darth, Leia, Rey, Finn, Yoda, Obi-Wan, R2 D2, C-3PO, Chewbacca and even Jabba the Hutt, come together to celebrate one of, if not the greatest film franchises of all-time.

As we speak, some super-fans have likely ditched work to blast through as many “Star Wars” films as possible. (They could also be wearing the costume of their favourite character!)

Others are at work reciting their favourite “Star Wars” lines and recalling (maybe even re-enacting!) their favourite moment, from their favourite episode. There’s even that crowd out there who will sift through eBay in search for a dazzling “Star Wars” collectible to add to their already sizeable stockpiles.

Heck, maybe the cast of “Downton Abbey”  (which can be seen Wednesdays at 10pm ET/7pm PT on VisionTV) briefly reunited to film yet another “Star Wars” spoof to go along with the hilarious ones they created in 2015.

Whatever path you travel today, we support your “Star Wars” fandom! In fact, we support it so much, we wanted to share with you some of the best #StarWarsDay posts we found on Twitter.

The creativity is strong with these.
