what is and how the star wars day originated

The Star Wars Day is a celebration day created by Star Wars fans in tribute to the franchise created by George Lucas. Star Wars Day originated from an article published by the British newspaper London Evening News on May 4, 1979, where members of the UK Conservative Party congratulated Margaret Thatcher on becoming the country’s Prime Minister. The article read “May the 4th Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations”. However, it wasn’t until 2011 when it began to gain momentum among fans: the Toronto Underground Cinema organized a film festival on the same day, and businesses took advantage of it to offer special discounts on Star Wars products.
