May the fourth……

May the fourth…be with you!  Happy National Star Wars Day!  Believe it or not, the day didn’t come from Star War fans, at least not American ones.  According to National Day Calendar dot com, in 1979 Britain elected the first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. On May 4th, the day she took office, the Conservative Party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News, which read, “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.”  In 2005, during an interview on a German news TV channel, Star Wars creator, George Lucas was asked to say the famous sentence “May the Force Be with You.”   Upon doing so, the interpreter interpreted the sentence into German as “On May 4 we are with you.”  As you celebrate today have some spacey treats, watch some Star Wars movies and wear your Wookie costume.  Na New Na New…wait, that’s something different.  Live long and prosper?  Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
