    May 4 marks the Star Wars Day with fans of the franchise taking to social media to pay tribute to their favorite characters, dress up their pets and even touch on political events through the prism of George Lucas films.

    It's understood that the annual holiday was first celebrated in 1979.

    The British fans of the Hollywood interstellar saga, according to a 2016 YouGov poll, named Han Solo as their most beloved Star Wars character. At the same time, in 2017 the British viewers have admitted that Star Wars was the most famous movie they have never watched.

    Hashtags #MayThe4thBeWithYou, #StarWarsDay and #StarWarsInFiveWordsOrLess have taken over Twitter on Friday. As space-themed posts filled the social platform, some users utilized Star Wars to explain how politics actually works. 

    Dog owners took the opportunity to celebrate the film series by dressing up their pets as Star Wars characters and posting the images on Instagram.
