Monday May 4th, 2015

Every year the fourth of May is celebrated online as Star Wars Day, with the hashtag "May The 4th Be With You" appearing repeatedly in most Twitter feeds. 

The day is generally celebrated with a non-stop stream of quotes and puns based on the characters from the beloved George Lucas space opera, and athletes and sports teams are quick to jump in on the fun.

The event seems to be more popular than ever this year, as the release of the the latest Star Wars film is slated for Christmas Day 2015.
