May the force be with you! Yes, we're geeks!

May the force, ah I mean the fourth, be with you!

May the 4th marks Star Wars Day Around the world. A day in which Star Wars fans the world over share Star Wars memes and greet each other with May the Force be with you. 

What I didn't know was the phrase "may the fourth be with you," was first used in 1979 in England when Margaret Thatcher took office as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Members of her Conservative party took out a full page advertisement in the London Evening news congratulating her ... "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie."

Star Wars then kicked off in Canada where the first organized Star Wars Day events were organised at the Toronto Underground Cinema on the 4th of May, 2011. And the day has since been embraced in countries all over the world.

Our family, apart from superhero fans, are right into Star Wars, so here are a few of our memes (as well as one that the superheroes love) for the 4th of May and the Revenge of the 6th of May. Enjoy!
