May the 4th and May the 5th

May 4th and May 5th are call international Star Wars days. In this lesson we tell you why.

May 4th or is it 5th that is international Star Wars day?

The first Star Wars movie was released on May 25th 1977, not on May 4th as many people think.

So the question is; why is May 4th international Star Wars day?

In the Star Wars movies, one of the groups of good people are called the Jedi.
Luke Skywalker is a Jedi.

The Jedi, believe a mystical power called «the force», links all the universe.
Jedi’s use the power of the force for good purposes.

When Jedi’s leave each other they don’t say “goodbye” instead they say “May the force be with you”.

To understand why May fourth could be international Star Wars day you have to know how to say the date in English.
There are number ways to write the date in English, for example:

04/05/20XX
20XX/05/04
05/04/20XX
4th May 20XX
May 4th 20XX

It is incorrect to write May the 4th, this is because “th”, “st”, and “rd” are a replacement for “the”.

When we say the date we can say:

“May 4th 20XX”

“4th of May 20XX”

“The 4th of May 20XX”

“May the fourth 20XX”

Because the spoken expression, “May the fourth” sounds like “May the force”, many Star Wars fans decided to make May 4th International Star Wars day.

However some people think May 5th is in fact Star Wars day.

In Star Wars the movies one group of bad people are called Sith Lords.
These people also believe in the Force but use the power of the force to do bad things.

The sixth Star Wars movie was called “Revenge of the Sith”, and because sith sounds like fifth, people who prefer the bad charters in Star Wars celebrate May 5th and call it “Revenge of the Fifth”

Remember the next time you are in American on May 4th, it is Free Comic Book Day.
So go to the nearest comic book store and claim your free comic book.
If you like comics and want to read almost every comic ever printed in English then we recomend you use Amazon’s comic website comixology.
