Thunder Bay, Ont. came out as the top city of Star Wars searches while Cambridge, Ont., Oshawa, Ont. and Nanaimo, B.C. rounded out the top five.

According to Lucasfilm and CNN, the reason Star Wars day came to be was the phrase was first used on May 4, 1979, the day Margaret Thatcher took office as United Kingdom prime minister. Like, say, marathon through every Star Wars movie.

Random? Absolutely. But still a welcome addition to Star Wars Day.

Dozens of fans costumed as Jedi knights, stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire and protagonist Luke Skywalker thronged central Taipei on Thursday to celebrate Star Wars Day, the 40th anniversary of the sci-fi film franchise.
