May 4 is the 124th day of the year (125th in leap years). There are 241 days remaining.

May 4 is often known as "Star Wars Day". It is jokingly said: "May the 4th be with you", in reference to the popular phrase in Star Wars: "May the Force be with you."

The phrase dates back to at least 1979, on the day Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain's first woman prime minister. Her party took out a newspaper ad in the London Evening News that said "May the Fourth be with you, Maggie. Congratulations."[1]

On May 2nd, 2019, the state of California's legislature voted and officially declared May 4th as "Star Wars Day" in recognition of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening later in the month of May.[2]
