Has there ever been a better month to harvest memes than this May? I can’t exactly call this Monday Meme day, but I am going to bless you with every fantastic May the Fourth Be With You meme I can find anyway. Star Wars Memes- especially May the 4th memes- are some of the most fun memes on the internet, friends! Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out soon so these should live on your social media feeds for a while. You’re welcome. You can also find some fun Solo: A Star Wars Story family activity sheets in this post that will keep your kiddos happy while you watch the movies. Again- you’re welcome!
You know what comes next right? It’s Star Wars May the Fourth Be With You Meme time!
Forgive me for dorking out over May the 4th memes here, but I really love a good meme, and if it’s a Star Wars meme even better. Thankfully, there’s a ton of great Star Wars memes on the internet and I’m ready to gather some of my favorites just for you.
What Does May the Fourth Be With You Mean, Anyway?
It’s a play off the Star Wars movie line, “May the Force be with you” and is celebrated on, what else, May the 4th. Sometimes people refer to it as Star Wars Day, but if you are a Star Wars fan, isn’t every day Star Wars day?
May the Force be with you was first said in the A New Hope before the Battle of Yavin. General Jan Dodonna used the phrase toward the Rebel pilots as they planned the attack on the Death Star.
Han Solo also says it to Luke Skywalker- which is a pretty big moment since Han doesn’t buy into the whole thing.

Fun fact: It’s said to have been used as May the Fourth be with you for the first time when Margaret Thatcher took office as the Prime Minister of England on May 4, 1979. Her political party placed an ad saying, “May the Fourth be with you, Maggie! Congratulations,” in support of her new role.
The OG May the 4th meme, y’all!
It’s now turned into a day to celebrate all things Star Wars. And people are pretty creative in their ways to do so. I’ve seen outfits planned including Star Wars inspired makeup tutorials, cute Star Wars crafts, and of course, Star Wars movie marathons.
That’s where you’ll find me and my May the 4th memes loving family.
We’re celebrating May the 4th by watching the Star Wars movies in order this year. That post has a few lists of order to choose from- so check it out!
Star Wars Memes
Star Wars memes are all over the internet, but I’ve pulled together a few of my favorites to share here. They span pretty much all the movies, but you might have caught on that I have a special preference toward Han Solo memes.
What can I say? He’s always been my guy! But I’ll try to move along… because there’s a ton of options when you are looking for the perfect Star Wars meme to share.
It does, indeed, take coffee. FACT.
Ouch, mom! I mean… why didn’t anyone speak up on behalf of poor Luke? He totally got the shaft compared to his sister.

My daughter is a little multitasker so she’s going to be working on these Solo activity sheets while we’re catching up on the Star Wars movies.
She squealed (pretty loudly!) when I told her about them all and demanded I print them immediately. Which, of course, I did. Starting with this one, because, hey… Donald Glover as Lando is life.
