What Is Star Wars Day?

Star Wars Day is a holiday celebrated every May 4th among the Star Wars fandom that has gained much more momentum over the last decade or so.

This name comes from the famous Star Wars quote “May the Force be with you.” The date fit in perfectly as “May the 4th be with you” and has become a thing since.

With this date has come many celebrations for the franchise, as well as announcements and releases such as this latest reveal by Xbox.

Custom LEGO Star Wars Xbox Series S Consoles

To celebrate the occasion, Xbox is holding a special contest through Twitter where they are giving away 12 different custom Xbox Series S consoles based on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

Seen at the top of this article, there are special consoles for a variety of characters including Luke Skywalker, Rey, Darth Maul, and Yoda. Each one is painted specially with the character on top as well as a special color scheme on the main console and the vents that look very cool.

To win one of these exclusive one-of-a-kind Xbox Series S Star Wars consoles, you will need to follow the official Xbox Twitter and retweet the official sweepstakes tweet with the hashtags #LegoStarWarsXboxSweepstakes and #Maythe4th. The contest will run from May 4 through May 25.
