May the 4th – Star Wars Day celebrated by Lego-Fans on Instagram

Today is the 4th of May, and since a few years this day is celebrated as Star-Wars-Day by the international Star-Wars-Community.
Did you know that this originated in the year 2005, when in an interview in a german TV show, George Lucas said “May the force be with you” and was mistaken by the translator who literally transmitted (in german) “On May the fourth, we will be with you!”, live and nationally broadcasted. Star-Wars-Day was born!

Since then, the celebrations in social networks grew bigger until also real events were held, with cinemas showing the original trilogy or parties with costume contests. Still, fans around the world celebrate the day, and so do all LEGO Fans i.a. by posting photos on Instagram. I want to share a compilation of my favourites here with you.
