How does Star Wars day compare to other famous days?

Did you know that the first public use of May the Fourth be with you was actually in an article about British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher? Despite its odd connection to a very un-Star Wars like British politician, May 4th is one of the most anticipated days of the year for Star Wars fans. With the news that Solo: A Star Wars Story tickets are going on sale, this year’s Star Wars day may be the most fondly remembered ever. But how does Star Wars day compare to other famous days?

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

ID4 was an exciting movie filled with memorable moments and great special effects. The destruction of the White House is one of the most iconic scenes in cinema history. A paper-thin plot prevents it from being an all-time classic.

Winner: Star Wars Day

Green Day

How does Star Wars Day compare to other famous days?

Green Day went from the “I liked them before they were popular” band to the “what a bunch of sell outs” in a few short years. They have a few catchy tunes, and even one or two good ones, but they have never been more than every high school student’s favorite band.

Winner: Star Wars Day

The New Day

The opposite of Green Day, this pro wrestling trio went from the tag team everyone hated to one that was universally loved. Passing the test of time is harder in wrestling than in any other form of entertainment, and after just a few years, they seemed to have become stale.

Winner: Star Wars Day

Felicia Day

Felicia Day created and starred in her own web series, voiced characters in classic video games and is the author of numerous books. Star Wars day celebrates a franchise that also had success in the various forms of media. If only she didn’t cast Wil Wheaton in The Guild.

Winner: Star Wars Day

Doomsday

Has he done anything noteworthy besides almost but not quite kill Superman? In all fairness, he is not the only person to coast on notable accomplishment.

Winner: Star Wars Day

Payday

How does Star Wars Day compare to other famous days?

How much do I love Star Wars? For the past three years I have taken the day off from work to watch the newest Star Wars movie. I have missed potlucks, Secret Santa exchanges, and birthdays so I can give Star Wars my full attention. I probably would have called out if it wasn’t paid time off, but the decision may have been more difficult.

Winner: Payday

Through its many peaks and valleys, the Star Wars franchise has kept a loyal fanbase that make Star Wars day one of the best days in entertainment. The series has become a media juggernaut that fans around the world celebrate. May the Fourth Be With You!
