May the Fourth Be With You: Gear Up and Celebrate Star Wars Day the Right Way

Tomorrow is Star Wars Day, aka the day when fans say “May the Fourth be with you.” But did you know that this wasn’t created by anyone from Lucasfilm? According to The Sun, the pun was coined in newspaper ad by the UK Conservative party when Margaret Thatcher took office in 1979. It was later adapted by fans worldwide, making May 4th the official holiday for the franchise and was later recognized by the Star Wars team.

For those who’ll celebrate tomorrow, it’s only fitting that you stock up on Star Wars items to show your love for the films and the characters all year round. The best part is that you can still wear these during the Solo: A Star Wars Story premiere. Go on and shop our list below.

You can also wear this with your Star Wars shirt. This white and sky blue slip on features C-3PO and R2-D2 on each shoe. According to Sperry’s site, the shoes show the two droids “wandering through the barren deserts of Tatooine in the search for Obi-Wan [Kenobi].” Available at Estancia Mall.
