20 May the 4th Be With You Memes

May the 4th be with you. These are the Star Wars Day memes you're looking for.

And also with you!

Here at Reader’s Digest, we appreciate wordplay, and so the fan-created Star Wars holiday May the fourth has a special place in our pun-loving hearts. Based off the classic Jedi farewell “May the Force be with you,” the fourth day of the fifth month—otherwise known as “May the 4th Be With You”—has become officially recognized by Disney (who owns the Star Wars franchise) as a celebration of all things Star Wars, with events, sales, and new releases occurring to mark the day. Not to mention the May the 4th be with you memes. Of course, true Star Wars nerds celebrate two Star Wars Days in May: the 4th, and the 25th, which was the release date of the original Star Wars movie Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope in 1977. If you’re planning to celebrate by watching the (12!!!) Star Wars movies in order, giving yourself nearly three weeks to do so between bookended Star Wars Days seems like a wise move.

If you prefer the Dark Side of the Force (we hear they have cookies?), May 5 offers an opportunity to celebrate not only Cinco de Mayo but also the second pun-tastic Star Wars Day: “Revenge of the Fifth” (named after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith). Of course, we all know Sith always come in twos—so May 6, punnily titled “Revenge of the Sixth,” can round out a three-day Star Wars extravaganza if you’re that way inclined, and we are that way inclined. Our preferred method of celebration? May the 4th be with you memes, of course! These are some of our favorite Star Wars Day memes for the punniest day in the galaxy.

It’s gonna be…

Someone had to do it! Who doesn’t love corny Star Wars jokes? If it wasn’t gonna be May, we couldn’t have May the 4th be with you memes.

Somehow, these people exist

Seriously, what is not to like?! Maybe one of the new Star Wars movies will change their minds, if these Star Wars Day memes don’t.

A disturbance in the Force

The Force is with the May the 4th be with you memes. If you’re feeling flirty, use these Star Wars pick up lines on your next date!

Catch us here May 4 (and every day)

It takes a lot of re-watches for a perfect list of the Star Wars movies ranked.

…unless we’re watching this one

This isn’t just a May the 4th meme, it’s our favorite Spagh-Jedi Western.

All problems have solutions

Seriously, each chocolate chip is a 10% improvement, and that’s a Star Wars fact.

The prequels are there for a reason!

…OK, maybe you can. May the 4th be with you memes don’t judge.

We all come from somewhere

Even Star Wars Day memes have a common ancestor: Star Wars trivia.

Maybe it was Santa?

Some of them are for you, honey! Next time, I’m only ordering May the 4th memes.

Cameras lie, right?

Honestly, it’s just the angle. Anyway, who needs good looks when you know every Star Wars quote by heart?

Cats might be aliens

You underestimate my need for sleep, Mr. Whiskers. It’s matched only by my need for May the 4th be with you memes.

(And every year since)

The Force is with me. Or “With me, the Force is,” if it was a Yoda quote.

Educational Star Wars Day memes

That didn’t go so well. Although we understand the need to buy Star Wars gifts.

“May the Force be with you!” “What?”

Instead of yelling to your neighbor, just send them some May the 4th be with you memes.

Shorter, but a lot less fun

There are plenty of ways to work through your issues. We recommend Baby Yoda gifts.

I want to believe

Honestly, thinking this guy isn’t real is a Wookie mistake. Just like these Star Wars facts everyone gets wrong.

Maybe I should work nights

It’s that 3 p.m. slump that does it, although Star Wars Day memes help.

The struggle is real


The answer is no

I find your lack of faith disturbing. May the 4th be with you!
