Why is it Lego Star Wars day?

So it's not quite Christmas, but Star Wars day is important for fans of the saga. And it all came about due to a terrible pun – May the 4th sounds very similar to 'May the force', as in "May the force be with you."

When does Lego Star Wars day start?

Star Wars Day is May 4th ('May the fourth be with you', if you follow), but Lego's event runs all week from May 1 right though until midnight Sunday, May 7, wherever you are.
