Today, May 4th, is Star Wars Day, a day to celebrate George Lucas’ much-loved films. May 4th was chosen because of its pun on the film franchise’s catchphrase, “May the Force be with you.” Annually, Star Wars fans all over the globe come together on this day to celebrate all the things they love about the film franchise. But did you know that the origins of Star Wars Day 2020 date back to May 4, 1979 when Margaret Thatcher became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom? According to Wikipedia, she was congratulated by The London Evening News, which greeted her through an advertisement that said, “”May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.” However, it wasn’t until 2011 when the first ever organized celebration of Star Wars Day occurred in Toronto, Canada. May 5 or May 6 are also meaningful dates to Star Wars fans, as they call it “Revenge of the Fifth” and “Revenge of the Sixth” in reference to Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
As we all safely celebrate Star Wars Day 2020 in our homes, we’ve curated some of the most memorable gifts you can send your friends and fellow Star Wars fans. You even can find some useful Mother’s Day gifts in this list!

I bought this case for my husband who works on an airfield all day awhile back. This man is HARD on cases, typically they don’t survive a few weeks before he has cracked some part of them…but so far after what I know have been NUMEROUS drops, tosses and general abuse, the only damage to the case is the design is starting to wear off. So if you love Boba Fett and need a good case, this one is definitely worth the money!” WarCookie
