(CNN) - May the Fourth be with you!  Wednesday is May 4, a day to celebrate all things Star Wars.

According to, one of the first mentions of the date came back in 1979 from newly-elected British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

After her historic win to become the UK's first female premier, her supporters took out an ad in a newspaper saying "May the fourth be with you Maggie. Congratulations"

Since then Star Wars Day has taken off.

Disney has even gotten in on the fun, posting videos with costume ideas and food suggestions.

Tell us on the WPTV Facebook page if and how you plan to celebrate. May the Fourth be with you!
