Today may seem like any normal day for everyone else, but definitely not for Star Wars diehards.

Patrons of the massive space opera franchise fondly marked Star Wars Day, an pun-turned-holiday that is basically a play on the immortal line "May the force (4th) be with you." The annual celebration traces its roots back to 1979, when Britain elected Margaret Thatcher to be its first woman prime minister.

As the years went by, the advent of technology has widened the scope of Star Wars Day observance, as it opened the doors for devotees to connect with one another. And while the passing of actress Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) has made 2017 a rather down time, that didn't stop her fellow actors and seasoned fans in commemorating the special occasion.
